Images and Words in the Clinic of Autism
Dr Leon S. Brenner
Monday 12 September 2022, 7.00pm – 8.00pm
In this Zoom talk Leon considers some of the marked differences in the autistic subject’s acquisition of language and speech development. Drawing on clinical examples from art therapy he outlines what may be described as ‘visual supplements’ supporting the representation of both ambiguous and abstract concepts.
(No prior knowledge of Lacan or psychoanalysis is assumed.)
Leon is research fellow at the International Psychoanalytic University Berlin and author of The Autistic Subject: On the Threshold of Language published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2020. His website is https://leonbrenner.com/
