Jack Nathan in conversation with James Mann

We will be exploring the issue of self- harm and looking at why psychoanalysis is vital as both a response and as a treatment.We will be asking questions like: is there an upside to self-harm? How does society regulate our forms enjoyment? Why does psychoanalysis seldom or not at all venture into the area where action is required, leaving the field open to CBT? If it were to venture into these areas what might a psychoanalytic ‘theory of action’ look like?
