Contemporary intersections in psychotherapy:
relational neuroscience, therapeutic imagination, secular spirituality
A day led by Professor Jeremy Holmes

Saturday 7 June 2014

After 30 years as an NHS psychiatrist, and 40 as an attachment-oriented psychoanalytic psychotherapist, Jeremy Holmes explores some of his current preoccupations as a way of enabling us to consider and assimilate some of the sweeping shifts that recently occurred in our field - in particular, theoretical intersections that are creating new paradigms. He will discuss relational neuroscience as a future home for psychodynamic psychotherapy, the therapeutic imagination and the workings of creativity in the consulting room, and connectedness as a mark of psychological health. Finally, there will also be an opportunity for Holmes’ acclaimed 'live supervision' in which delegates bring clinical material for collaborative and collegial discussion in a goldfish-bowl format.
