Reading in Contexts: A Creative Approach to Critical Reading

10:00 - 13:00 London

A series of 4 seminars for those who would like to develop their engagement with analytic theory. The seminars are designed to be of interest to all members and trainees who would like to develop their skills in discussing, teaching, and writing about contemporary Jungian and psychoanalytic theory and practice.

The aim is to allow ourselves to engage with ideas beyond the purely personal, and to invite more of the world we live in into our reflections. Knowledge of any kind is always a meeting between self and not-self. Having a sense of historical and philosophical context gives unity and system to the analytic body of knowledge and helps us examine critically the grounds of our convictions, prejudices and beliefs.

Endings and Beginnings - A view to retirement for Psychotherapists

20:00 - 21:30 London

Endings and Beginnings - A view to retirement for Psychotherapists
The decision to retire is  complex and, in our profession,  ideally requires several years of planning although, for various reasons,  some  may have to retire at shorter notice than anticipated.  Retirement  can be a lonely process, it is a time of change but,  positively  brings with it the potential for new opportunities, doing things there has never been time for. The   aim of the evening  is to offer  members planning or beginning to think  about   retirement, and also retired members,   a space to reflect on and share their experiences, personal and professional.
