course content

These seminars provide the opportunity to discuss, in detail, interactions with professional colleagues, or clients/patients. Psychoanalytic and Jungian concepts are introduced and used to explore the unconscious communications and dynamics that develop in human interactions, in order to make sense of anxiety, hostility, unproductive meetings and difficulties with colleagues, whether you are in a helping profession, or whatever your professional background. It is expected that participants bring detailed description of their work.

From time to time papers may be introduced to facilitate learning.

Group participants will be helped to establish an atmosphere of confidentiality, trust and reflection to facilitate open exploration of their thinking and their work.

structure

Three terms of 8 week seminars will be offered. It is possible to join for one, two or three terms. The group will meet on Monday evenings at 7.00pm – 8.30pm.
