Welcome to the News section where I will be keeping you up to date with what I am doing and my interests in the field of psychotherapy. There will be discussion of what current affairs have struck me as interesting from a mental health perspective.
This page will hopefully keep you informed about what I am up to professionally but I also want it to be much more eclectic than simply publicising upcoming events.
I will also be sharing my thoughts on current reading that has inspired me. This could be psychoanalytic texts and non-fiction but could equally be novels that illuminate the human experience. Additionally I hope to comment on theatre, film or TV that I have found provocative or stimulating.
I’ll be updating the News sections on a fairly regular basis and Steph, my web designer, will be pushing me to make sure that happens!
Publications and Reading
Professionally, for the last few months I have been involved with James Davies as I am very passionate about his latest book, ʻCracked – Why Psychiatry is Doing More Harm than Goodʼ.
You will see from my publications page that I have a review of the book and an interview with James about to be published.
For colleagues I would like to draw your attention to the Site Conference on Trauma – ʻCanʼt we just let the past Be the past?.
ʼ Why we need to talk about trauma, and what might happen if we donʼt. Keynote speaker: Karl Figlio.
This is being held at Resource for London, Holloway Road, London N7 6PA on Saturday October the 5th 2013 from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
Site conferences are always lively affairs and are often challenging to accepted norms around the therapeutic endeavour. For further details contact: email@example.com or www.the-site.org.uk.
