This full-day conference will bring together some of the leading psychoanalytic thinkers on Wilfred Bion to consider his place in current psychoanalytic research and practice.
Bion is one of the giants of psychoanalytic theory, best known for his work on groups, his widely applied concept of container-contained and his rich theory of thinking which places emotional experience at its heart.
His writings continue to be hugely influential, and are drawn on by new generations of therapists. This conference will consider the ways in which his work is used in the consulting room, both in psychoanalytic work with individuals and with couples, and what it can teach us about relationships.
Nicola Abel-Hirsch will present a paper entitled ‘Attending a clinical seminar with WR Bion’, Francis Grier will talk about ‘Narcissism and Containment in Couple Relationships’, Dr David Hewison about ‘Thinking with Bion and Jung about Container-Contained Processes in the Couple’ and Dr Judith Pickering about ‘Transformations in Love: an Application of Bion’s Thinking to Work with Couples’.
