Welcome to apply for the study of Lacanian psychoanalysis at the Sigmund Freud University in Ljubljana.


Name of the program: Lacanian psychoanalysis

Duration of the program: 4 years (8 semesters)

Head of department: Dr Nina Krajnik

Lecturers: Dr Milan Balažic; Dr Boris Brezovac; Špela Jelenc, M.A; Janja Kaiser-Zupančič, M.A



The study program is based on the psychoanalytic orientation of Jacques Lacan, his theory, practice, and its relation to fields of therapy, medicine, philosophy, science, and art. On the basis of critical epistemological reflection of psychoanalytic concepts, symptomatics of the 20th and 21st century, and presentations of clinical cases from Lacan’s and contemporary psychoanalytic practice, students will get familiar with:

● the technique, ethics, and specificity of work,
● postmodern symptoms,
● questions of analytic discourse and its position in socio-political space.

The program is carried out by intertwinement of lectures, based on Lacan’s seminars and work of Lacanian psychoanalysts, performing of psychoanalytic practice, and by entering one’s own analysis.
