Presented by Martin Pollecoff  "In theory, theory and practice are the same, in practice they are not” - Quote, Yogi Berra, Baseball Coach At college we learn the scales and the five-finger exercises of therapy. In our Clinical work we play Jazz. Each session is a unique encounter, so we have to improvise - there is no sheet music or script to follow.  There are no empirically validated pre-fabricated methodologies that cover the fast-moving dynamics of in-the-room relationships. That gap between…

Therapy Thinking and the Political Process with Professor Andrew Samuals Andrew writes: I would like to create a space for psychological reflection on the election campaign, with polling day less than three weeks away. The hope is for informed, challenging, opinionated and lively conversation that is not just what any journalist could say, yet also not reductive psychobabble/ jargon only interesting to the psy professionals. The questions I can imagine exciting people at this time include: What do elections mean…

Presented by Michael Soth In an age of narcissism epidemic, as demonstrated by celebrities all over the media, the body is used as a fashion accessory, as an advertisement for Self rather than an incarnation of the Self. As Winnicott observed, for us to develop a sense of the “psyche indwelling in the soma”, we need a relational space where we do not feel pressure to adjust our gesture to Mummy’s expectation, whether that Mummy is personal, social, cultural or…

It will explore how an existential approach  directs the therapeutic enterprise toward a very uncertain and uneasy form of world-creating relationship that depends to…

  The work of Ken Wilber on Levels of Consciousness: with Dr John Rowan    Up to 2000, Ken Wilber was producing something like a book a year, culminating in the publication of his eight-volume Collected Works. Sadly he then became ill with ME, which prevented him from doing the kind of writing he had perfected, which relied on the integration of a mass of material into a coherent whole, but in 2006  he produced  a further book, entitled 'Integral Spirituality', which seems to…

How hyper-rationality and empathy deficit creates an inner ‘War against the Indigenous’ and forces the politicisation of psychotherapy Britain grooms its political elite by means of privileged abandonment in childhood, but the boarding habit is so normalised that, like fish that don’t notice water, we ignore how extraordinary it is to foreigners, how traumatic to children, how regressive for society. Institutionalised as the ‘Independent System,’ favourably polarised with state provision, it blinds us by a trap baited with ‘parental choice.’ But normalisation…

Delivered by Manu Bazzano There are Codes of Ethics and there is Radical Ethics; the latter does not always coincide with the former but emerges as situational embodied response to the presence of another. You could transgress a rule and be ethical. You can follow a Code and be unethical. Radical ethics is another name for hospitality and the work of a therapist that of a host. Who is a good host? One who understands deeply that she is a…

Presented by Nick Totton Bringing therapy into the wild, and wildness into therapy ‘Wild Therapy’ is a book (PCCS Books, 2011), and a training programme; behind both of these, it is an attempt to rewild therapy, to rebalance its current exaggerated tameness with a dollop of risk and spontaneity, celebrating therapy’s capacity to transcend the limitations we place on our creativity and connectedness. Working outdoors in comparatively undomesticated settings encourages us to bring the other-than-human and more-than-human – animals, birds,…
