The full programme of these courses can be found at the ECF website ( The health situation has led the ECF to take into account that real against which it strikes the whole world. Thus, each one, from all over France or from all the countries of the World Association of Psychoanalysis, can subscribe to follow a teaching by videoconference throughout the year. Radio Lacan is pleased to broadcast a course on each topic, with the agreement on each subject, with the agreement of each teacher.
