The work of our research group includes historical reassessment, conceptual clarification, clinical exploration, reflection on the future of psychoanalysis and attempts to articulate the conditions for fruitful dialogue. The image used to represent this research group was created by Dr Ernst Falzeder, a respected researcher of psychoanalytic movements and friend of the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies at Essex.
