Piece of Mind
by Jane Christmas, PhD
THE BODY, TECHNOLOGY, AND BECOMING
In this clinically oriented daylong program, PINC's 2016 International Visiting Scholar, renowned psychoanalyst Alessandra Lemma, DClin, Psych, applies Deleuze's concept of "becoming": taking up the ways that our bodies "become" through the experiences new technologies make possible, Lemma argues that psychoanalytic theorizing needs to focus on how bodies are experienced through technology. Peter Carnochan, PhD, presents compelling clinical material of a boy and his relationship to technology. Maureen Murphy, PhD, and Julie Leavitt, MD, serve as interlocutors.
