A Morning with Adam Phillips
Second Chances

with Adam Phillips, PhD
Saturday, April 23rd, 2022 – 10:00am-12:00pm EST

This workshop will take place virtually on Zoom.

It is a striking fact that we talk of second chances in life, but never third or fourth chances. And it is also true that only second chances reveal what in fact was a first chance. All this of course is germane to psychoanalytic theory and practice. This paper explores through ideas of repetition, deferred action, the Oedipus complex, and Freud’s notion of biphasic sexual development, the significance of second chances for psychoanalytic theory and practice.
