Lacan’s “Ethical Guidelines” and Psychotherapy Today

Anne Worthington

Ethics are at the centre of our work as analysts and [ethics are that] which hold together all those who constitute the psychoanalytic community 'Lacan, 1992 (59-60) 38. Seminar VII can be read as offering ethical guidelines for both those on and behind the couch. Lacan provides certain insights into racism, homophobia and religious intolerance and sexism with his notion that what we tolerate least well in other people is their own particular way of obtaining jouissance (Fink. 2002 34). 

This paper will introduce some of the ideas from Lacan's Seminar VII with reference to analyst and therapist and client, and to the position we take up as psycho­ practitioners vis-a-vis the communities in which we work. The paper investigates the recent history of attempts by the State to regulate the 'talking therapies' and the conflicts within the psychotherapy communities that arose in response.
