Angélica Lavín is a Chilean Psychoanalyst and a member of the International Psychoanalytical Association. She has been drawing since her childhood, and her illustrations of Freud's clinical cases are based on images that arose spontaneously in her mind. For Angélica, to draw dreams is to re-dream them, and the act of sharing these drawings is an invitation to others to continue dreaming Freudian dreams.
