Bion's Clinical Relevance

Fortnightly Saturday Half Day Seminars

Bion accomplished a remarkable and radical overhaul of psychoanalytic theory and technique and extended both in novel ways. This series of seminars will focus on the practical application of his ideas. Each seminar will have a theoretical component followed by a clinical case presentation. Bion’s writing can at times be difficult and arcane. The aim of the seminars will be too clarify his ideas and ground them in the everyday realities of the clinical situation from which they arose. Bion’s writings from the early and middle periods of his career are highly practical and have major significance for the problems that we all encounter in the consulting room.

The six seminars will last two and a half hours from 10-00 to 12-45 with a discussion of theory papers lasting 1hr followed by a clinical case discussion of 1 ½ hrs.
