The Psychoanalytic Clinic Division is responsible
for addressing the General Assembly of Gifric regarding the development
of analytic savoir. This savoir is developed through its production
(“intension”) and application (“extension”). To this end, the
Psychoanalytic Clinic Division organizes it’s activities around
two main axes: 1) the School and its Circles, and 2) the Centers
for Training and Clinical Intervention. The Psychoanalytic Clinic
Division brings together the members of the School, the Circles,
and the training centers with the Associate Members of Gifric
who are directly involved with either or both of these two axes.
A Clinical Council, comprised of four members named by the General
Assembly of Gifric, is statutorily responsible for the clinical
orientation and the ethics of psychoanalytic practice. One particular
group, the Extended Psychoanalytic Group, brings together Gifric
clinicians and analysts for research, discussions, and continuous
evaluations of analytic practice at Gifric and the School.
