The core of these seminars were held in the aftershock of the 2018 #MeToo and ‘Time’s Up’ campaigns – an explosive moment in the history of gender relations that revealed not only the extent of institutionalised abuse perpetrated by powerful men, but also how a conspiracy of silence spanning decades had left survivors traumatised and abandoned.Read More...
It seemed the right moment to explore the reality of women’s experience and how the field of psychotherapy was responding. From the founders of feminist therapy to new voices, this inspiring module reflects the particular stresses of being a woman, how we relate to these as therapists, and the growth of female-centred perspectives in our work. Our speakers:
- Examine inherent relationships of power, race, control and intersectionality when working with women.
- Help to deepen our understanding of women who are childfree by choice, loss, or ambivalence.
- Consider how to introduce empowering narratives, rituals and goddess myths into therapy.
- Explore why women are three times more likely to self-harm.
- Offer ways of working sexual harassment, objectification, domestic violence and sexual abuse in the client’s world.
- Provide therapeutic strategies for working with sex workers and other women at risk.
- Offer a model for the psychology of female violence and ‘crimes against the body’.
