We are Freudian Association members. There is no doubt about the cultural nature of our activities under our association’s name. Our membership is not because of our educational or occupational degree, but is due to our desire; the desire to acquire the Freudian-Lacanian science, and our common experience is to be the students of the Freudian-Lacanian field under supervision of Dr. Mitra Kadivar, who is the only WAP analyst member in Iran and the most parts of Asia, who has been Freud and Lacan student from a long time ago.
Yes, this association was established by people who live their teacher’s lessons every second of their lives, people who are practicing “Moral Responsibility for the Content of Dreams” , people who are learning that “The Unconscious is not treated”  and that “desire” is linked to “responsibility“.
Psychoanalysis was born in Europe more than a hundred years ago, it is an experimental science established by Freud. In Iran, the birth of psychoanalysis was when Dr. Kadivar came back to Iran, she’s been trying vigorously and her uninterrupted endeavors to spread and extend psychoanalytic discourse in the Iranian society.
“Here until now, what you’ve obtained, whether in these classes or through your personal analysis, has been the result of several other people’s desire outside of your own existence. The result of my desire and others who have backed me up… to be able to do this… this desire did something, created something that was not at all demanded, let alone desired for.” says Dr. Kadivar.  in Freudian Field – Lacan School classes, on 2005.
This way the master’s desire created the student’s desire, and the master recognized this desire and showed the path in order for this backwardness which she called “underdeveloped desire”  to traverse a hundred years and to establish an association of passionate souls so that the “ the cause of the path” will shine a light on the darkness of their paths.
So, this association with the presidency and leadership of Dr. Mitra Kadivar aims towards “Introducing psychoanalysis to Iranian society and increasing public’s knowledge of it”  started its activity to introduce “Freud by Freud”  to psychoanalysis enthusiasts and in order for all people to know that “Psychoanalysis means Freud and Freud means Psychoanalysis” . All these years the association has been doing its best to “prevent weed growth in the Freudian farm“.
Throughout these years, we’ve known that the thing called psychoanalysis teaching should start from ourselves, in other words there is no way for us to acquire it other than through the process of personal psychoanalysis.
There is no border between outside and inside; the process of personal psychoanalysis is not separated from doing activities for the association. “Psychoanalysis in Extension is not separated from psychoanalysis in Intension.“ One of our logo’s elements is the “Moebius Strip” ; “it is only because the two sides are continuous that it is possible to cross over from inside to outside (or vice versa).“
The transparency is our basis, so we’ve established our official website, beside our other activities, to take another step forward in order to introduce Freud and Lacan to Iranian society. We publish all news and events that are related to our activities in order to show everyone that our activities are clear and continuous.
