The Claustrum: A Projective Identification View of the World

Listen to psychoanalyst Donald Meltzer talk about one of Klein’s most famous and complex concepts: projective identification. Meltzer explored her idea through his own formulation of the ‘claustrum’, a psychical state that he describes in this presentation given in 1990. It was part of the former annual public lectures at the Centre for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
