Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy NOW 2013. Getting to grips with society's ills: a psychoanalyic perspective.
|A British Psychoanalytic Council Conference|
|5th October 2013 - 5th October 2013|
|Holiday Inn, London Bloomsbury|
This year’s conference considers the changing political landscape in the UK: the Government dramatically changing the welfare state and social contract, with increased use of language such as ‘strivers’ and ‘shirkers’. Coupled with a rise in reality TV and a cult of celebrity, we seem to be living in an increasingly individualistic and narcissistic society.
Picking up on a range of contemporary themes – such as individualism, consumerism and a decline of community, families and young people, inequality and poverty, and the increasing marginalization of some sections of the community – Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy NOW 2013 will explore ways of getting to grips with society’s ills using our unique psychoanalytic perspective, and how psychoanalytic thinking can inform and support the Government and policy makers in their responses.
