Anne Fagot-Largeault is a French psychiatrist and philosopher. She is a professor at the Collège de France and is a member of the Academy of Sciences of the Institut de France. Within the context of the Academic Chair 'History and Philosophy of Sciences' Crosstalks organizes an expert meeting with Anne Fagot-Largeault to discuss how Belgian psychiatrists deal with the prescription of drugs on the one hand and the use of various styles of psychotherapy on the other. 

Programme: 

13.30-14.00h.: Registration with coffee and tea

14.00-14.10h.: Introduction by Jean Paul Van Bendegem (VUB)

14.10-14.50h.: Lecture by Anne Fagot-Largeault: 'Psychothérapie ou chimiothérapie ?' (lecture and discussion will be executed in French!):

En France toute une génération de psychiatres, formée à la psychanalyse, a ignoré la neurologie et privilégié l'approche analytique. Cela a suscité de vives réactions. Ainsi les familles d'enfants autistes on demandé que la psychanalyse soit interdite dans le traitement de l'autisme. On cherchera comment les psychiatres belges négocient la dualité d'approches, entre la prescription de médicaments et le recours aux divers styles de psychothérapie.

14.50-17.00h.: Discussion modérée par Jean-Noël Missa (ULB)
