Confer’s Annual Psychgeist Conference: Is Psychotherapy a Relationship or a Cure?
With speakers Shoshi Asheri, Dr Richard Gipps, Professor Dany Nobus and Dr Jay Watts
Recorded Saturday 21 September 2019
Last year we asked the thought-provoking question What is Normal? as the topic for our think-tank conference to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Somewhat beyond our expectations, the question generated some brilliant, fresh and new perspectives about the therapy process. And so we have posed another challenging question for our speakers to answer in this event: is psychotherapy a relationship or a cure?READ MORE...
Our aim is to explore the dichotomy between the medical model of assessment, treatment, and cure in contrast to its antithesis – a process of exploration between two people, one which focuses on the needs of one but in which each participant draws on their own subjectivities and histories.
Each speaker addresses the question through their own experiences of being in therapy, of being the therapist and of experiencing and witnessing change.
CPD – An optional certificate of attendance for up to 4.5 hours of CPD, based on completion of a multiple choice questionnaire, will be available soon.
