Please join us at 2pm on October 14 at NPAP for a panel discussion to celebrate the release of Issue 7 of The Candidate Journal, THE CANDIDATE, BARRED, as part of a series of panels on “The Candidate’s Voice” organized by the journal.

Contributors to the issue, as well as other psychoanalytic candidates and early-career clinicians, will discuss some of the themes brought up in Issue 7 relating to questions of psychoanalytic training and institutional psychoanalysis: transference within the institute, matters of pedagogy, the transmission of psychoanalysis, the evaluation of candidates, the role of the state in psychoanalytic training, the training analysis and its place in the birth of an analyst.  Most broadly, we hope to provide an arena for candidates and early-career clinicians to theorize the candidate's position, as well as to articulate something of the problem represented by the speaking candidate.
