What is the difference between "jeudi prochain" and "le jeudi d'arpès»?

Would it be correct to explain that "jeudi prochain" is the next Thursday, i.e. from today, while "jeudi d'après" is "the following Thursday" regardless the time reference point (i.e. it could be the next Thursday from the event that had taken place a year ago) ?

Bonjour Yuri ! You got it! Basically "jeudi prochain" is used to talk about a future action from a present standpoint (= next Thursday), whereas "le jeudi d'après" is used to express "the following Thursday". À bientôt !
