"Walking with Freud" (BBC 2010)
"Freud was always very loth to interrupt his holidays for any professional work, but he could not refuse a man of Mahler's worth" (Ernest Jones)
This year is the 150th anniversary of the birth of the composer Gustav Mahler who it is said, and falsely so, had an analysis with Sigmund Freud. Following his introductory lecture at the Freud Museum earlier this year, where this idea and others were challenged (for full report see May, 2010 Bulletin) the BBC invited Anthony Cantle to join the distinguished British composer David Matthews in recreating the meeting one hundred years earlier in August, 1910 between Freud & Mahler in the Dutch city of Leiden nearby where, on the coast at Noordwijk, Freud was spending his summer vacation with his family. Recorded in Holland last July, and forming part of the year long BBC series of Proms concerts and features commemorating Mahler's birth and musical achievements, the programme will be broadcast for the first time on Sunday, 21st November at 9.30pm on BBC Radio 3.

A FOUNDATION COURSE IN PSYCHOANALYSIS
This new course is aimed at those who seek a deeper knowledge of psychoanalytic ideas and their application to clinical work. It will be of particular interest to those who may wish to pursue a future training in psychoanalysis.

Whilst the Introductory Lectures Course precedes the Foundation Course, it may not be necessary to have attended the introductory lectures before applying to this course.
The course will take place on Friday afternoons between l pm and 3.30 pm throughout the academic year and will offer theoretical seminars (l ¼ hours) followed by clinical work discussion seminars (11/4 hours).
