Master's Degree in Coaching - Completed: 2017
TESTIMONY: "Como directora de la Asociación San José en Guadix (Granada) reconozco que fue una sorpresa conocer que la formación en coaching impartida por el profesor Francisco Yuste en nuestra asociación estaba reconocida por Bircham International University. No sólo estabamos encantados con la excelente formación que estabamos recibiendo sino que además pudimos optar a recibir un diploma que avalase dichos estudios. El profesor Yuste y el director de Bircham International University tuvieron a bien organizar una ceremonia de entrega de nuestros diplomas en la propia asociación. Fue un momento entrañable que pudimos compartir los directivos que completamos dicha formación con nuestra familia y amigos."
If the castration complex is to normalize the child, Lacan argues, what the child must be made to perceive is that what satisfies or orders the desire of the mother is not any visible (imaginary) feature of the father (his obviously better physical endowments, and so on). The child must come to see that the whims of the mother are themselves ordered by a Law that exceeds and tames them. This law is what Lacan famously dubs the name ( nom ) of the father, trading on a felicitous homonymy in French between nom (name) and non (the "no!" to incestuous union). When the father intervenes, (at least when he is what Lacan calls the symbolic father) Lacan's argument is that he does so less as a living enjoying individual than as the delegate and spokesperson of a body of social Law and convention that is also recognised by the mother, as a socialised being, to be decisive. This body of nomoi is what Lacan calls the big Other of the child's given sociolinguistic community. Insofar as the force of its Law is what the child at castration perceives to be what moves the mother and gives the father's words their "performative force" (Austin), Lacan also calls it the "phallic order."
