Psychotic structure, psychotic functioning, psychotic core – different terms for a phenomenon many clinicians know from their practice: patients who do not show overt psychotic symptoms as hallucinations or delusions but who nevertheless appear “psychotic” on a more subtle, structural level and who are faced with considerable limitations in their everyday lives. The conference presents conceptual and clinical perspectives from different psychoanalytic traditions and aims to stimulate lively discussions between these diverging schools of thought.
