Venue: Tavistock Relationships, Central London
CPD hours: 7
This special one day event organised to fall between Tavistock Relationships International Summer School, and the week leading up to the London IPA Congress (happening in London for first time since 1950s), is a collaboration between Tavistock Relationships and the Couple and Family Psychoanalysis Committee of the IPA (COPAF).
Following Tavistock Relationships 70th anniversary last year, this will be an opportunity to further understand, explore and elaborate one of Tavistock Relationships key concepts, ‘Shared Unconscious Phantasy’. International perspectives from North and South America, Europe and other parts of the world will create a dialogue between leading members of the field and participants that we hope will lead to an enrichment of our couple analytic concepts.
The morning will focus on the theory of Shared Unconscious Phantasy and other theoretical perspectives that might differ from or elaborate the concept. Clinical vignettes will be offered to clarify meaning and deepen understanding. In the afternoon, an application of the ideas from the morning will be applied to detailed clinical material. There will be time given to audience participation and panel discussion.
Please also note that the conference is on the 4th floor and unfortunately there is no lift.
