The Lunchtime Work Discussion: The Annihilated Self
Live supervision sessions
Dates: Mondays: 12 June, 19 June, 26 June and 3 July 2017
Time: 13:00 – 14:00
This is an exciting opportunity to join a 4-week lunchtime ‘work discussion group’ that will meet from 13.00 to 14.00 in the summer term of 2017, starting on Monday 12 June 2017.
Designed as a taster, the workshop will explore manifestations of what we encounter in our consulting room nowadays. Traumas (from the womb to adult life, to trans-generational transmission of trauma) affect our patients in all sort of ways, giving rise to what we could describe as ‘the annihilated self’. The aim of the workshop is to make room for and creating a better awareness of the annihilated aspects of the self, in the hope that this will enable our patients to be less destructive towards themselves and come into being.
This workshop is a new venture and will be limited in number to allow all participants to use clinical material fresh from the consulting room and discuss it in the group. The participants will be asked to share their case material which will be our ‘text book’ and from which we will venture to explore the self of our patients.
Reading material will be provided, so that some useful papers can be looked at in conjunction with the clinical material.
Leader: Alessandra Cavalli
