Psychosomatic Phenomenon

Starting with Freud we will review Lacan's successive elaborations on the nature of psychosomatic symptoms. We will address the concept of Holophrase and its historical roots; we will end up by some clinical indications when dealing with such patients.

Courtney Douds will present a case study with psychosomatic symptoms.
