Wessex event: trauma handed down the generations: psychoanalytic perspectives

Saturday March 20th 2020, 11:00 - 12:30


Speaker: Angela Joyce

Chair: Kate Wright

Following the presentations for Wessex bpfHelp Me Love My Baby” by Ju Thomas Merills in 2019, and “Mothers accused and abused: addressing complex psychological needs” by Angela Foster in 2020, we are delighted that Angela Joyce has agreed to give this paper to continue the theme of the intergenerational transmission of traumatic experiences. In her paper she will consider how psychoanalysis contributes to the understanding of the ways in which individuals become caught up in repetitions of the traumas of previous generations. She will present clinical examples from across the life cycle.

The meeting will be chaired by Kate Wright. Kate is a Psychoanalyst in full-time private practice. She has a background working with children and families both as a teacher and as a Counsellor in the field of Autism and Special Educational Needs.
