Using LacanianPsychoanalysis in (Non-Analytic) Clinical Practice:

Theoretical Principles and Case Based Illustrations

Abstract

The theoretical ideas of French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan are frequently not well understood by the psychotherapeutic establishment in the United States. This essay seeks to introduce Jacques Lacan’s ideas about clinical practice to therapists and counselors who are not analysts but would like to integrate psychoanalytic ideas into their work with clients. Using definitions of key terms and case based illustrations from my own work with clients I seek to demonstrate the utility of Lacanian ideas for bringing about therapeutic change. Lacan’s idea that symptoms are metaphoric substitutions that have fallen out of the client’s unconscious signifying chains is explained and clinical illustrations are provided of how clinicians can effect change in a client’s symptoms by intervening at the level of language rather than at the level of conscious meaning.
