working with addicted patients: theoretical and clinical issues

It is increasingly common in a psychotherapy practice to find oneself working with patients who have addictive behaviours. This workshop proposes a psychoanalytic model to understand this, which has implications for how we treat our patients. Participants are encouraged to bring clinical material.

This CPD seminar is offered by the Post-Qualifying Committee of the PPA and is open to all qualified members across the bpf.
