The Work of Christopher Bollas - Two Seminars with Sarah Nettleton


Saturday Morning Seminars: 16 & 23 November 2019, 10:00am - 1:00pm

Christopher Bollas has made an extraordinarily wide contribution to contemporary psychoanalysis. Expanding on the legacy of Freud, Winnicott and Bion, his writings cover theory, clinical technique and psychopathology, and the application of psychoanalytic thinking to many aspects of culture and society. Most of all, he is concerned with the intricate complexity of human subjectivity.

These two seminars will explore the foundations of Bollas’ unique model of the mind and will include topics such as the receptive unconscious & psychic genera, idiom as the kernel of self; the unthought known; the evocative potential of objects; and free association.

Sarah Nettleton is a psychoanalyst in private practice in London. Originally she studied music, and worked for many years as a piano accompanist. She specializes in the work of Christopher Bollas, and over the past 15 years she has taught and lectured extensively, both in the UK and abroad.

Her book The Metapsychology of Christopher Bollas: An Introduction was published by Routledge in 2016.
