Reading, Writing, Listening:

A symposium with Adam Phillips, including guests Josh Cohen and Howard Cooper


Saturday 1 December 2018 - London



Over the course of three decades, Adam Phillips has been exploring and expanding the boundaries of psychoanalytic writing. He has addressed topics from across the broadest range of human experience - among many others, flirtation, escape, sanity, the unlived life and 'unforbidden pleasures'. Yet it's not simply the intellectual richness of his writing that has inspired readers, but his unmistakeable personal voice - playful, paradoxical and profoundly humane.

But Phillips is first of all a psychotherapist, and this symposium presents a rare opportunity to explore connections between his writing and his clinical work. The day will be centred on a presentation by him, followed by discussions of his work and an extensive conversation with him, giving psychotherapists the chance to discover how his perspective on the page and his passion for writing might inform his presence in the consulting room (and vice versa).
