Qu’est-ce qu’on Lacan pour être heureux? [What do we Lacan to be happy?]
Qu’est-ce qu’on Lacan pour être heureux? Is the title of the latest book by Jean-Jacques Urvoy, a member of the FEDE Panel of Experts.
Jean-Jacques Urvoy is a psychoanalyst, designer, teacher and writer. His latest book argues for a subtle new position in the field of personal development – operational psychoanalysis. What exactly is it?
Perhaps you’re aware that something is not quite right in your life, but you keep putting off the decision to act. You have, however, tried various methods, including psychoanalysis and personal development coaching.
What if you combined the two?
Operational psychoanalysis is short and proactive. Face-to-face coaching sessions are organised both before and after the analysis. It has four phases: goals, psychoanalysis, roadmap and supervision. While it does not refute the basic tenets of psychoanalysis, such as the emancipation of speech, exploration of the unconscious, transference and emotional catharsis, operational psychoanalysis is firmly grounded in reality.
The book, which discusses a number of practical case studies, will help you to create your own roadmap to a serene and relaxed way of living.
