THINKING ABOUT ANALYTIC TRAINING IN A CHANGING WORLD
Running over three afternoons, 14.00 – 18.00 UK time, 17 – 19 November, 2023
CONVENORS: JAN WIENER, RICHARD MIZEN, CATRIONA WROTTESLEY
This international online conference runs over 3 consecutive afternoons. It aims to examine the basic assumptions that inform approaches to training in its diﬀerent aspects. These can be conscious but are often aﬀected by unconscious forces that reﬂect a conﬂict in training institutes and their members between the wish to grow and develop on the one hand and a reluctance to face the change and loss this involves, on the other.
The conference brings together people from analytic institutes across the world, with a shared interest in training but who may have diﬀerent views and orientations. The themes that will be explored include:
- The role and teaching of theory.
- Attitudes to our methods of work and their relevance in a contemporary
- Cross-cultural aspects of training.
- What we expect candidates to know and how we assess progress.
- Unaccountable power and prejudice in our institutes.
- Personal analysis: what is enough?
