New CPD courses for 2015:

Enid Balint Lecture 2015 ‘Beating the Bounds: A Clinical
Investigation into the Psychoanalytic Frame’

6 February 2014, 18:30 – 20:30 

Dr Robin Anderson, a training analyst in adult, child and adolescent analysis at the British Psychoanalytical Society uses the ancient English custom of the ‘Beating the Bounds’ procession as an analogy for both an external and internal setting and argues that Freud’s original intuitive choice of the analytic setting tapped into something pre-existing in the human psyche.

One-day Workshop: ‘Home is Where the Therapy is? Reflecting on the Issues of Identity for Psychotherapists Working in Another Country’

7 February 2014, 10:00 – 16:00 

In this workshop we will be exploring the ways in which a therapist’s sense of identity and belonging is impacted by working in a non-native environment and (perhaps) in an acquired language. In particular, this workshop will address the various aspects of the therapists’ clinical dilemmas in the context of working away from their place of cultural and linguistic origin.

Fee:  £125 (£115 if booked and paid for by 19 December, 2014)
