The West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy runs various training courses, seminars and lectures for the general public and members:
Myra Connell reads her final qualifying paper: "The Grand Old Duke of York: Beyond Up and Down". 7.00pm - 8.30pm at the Edgbaston Quaker Meeting House.
This meeting is for WMIP members only.
Jung's esoteric archetypes have caused much confusion. In this paper, Martin Schmidt attempts to unpick some of this confusion and demonstrate how archetypal thinking remains useful in understanding the clinical encounter.
How does an individual human being return from the far reaches of certain terrible experiences?
Humour, enjoyment and lightness of heart find relatively little place in the literature of depth psychology, where the sombre themes of mourning and loss, anger and hatred remain predominant. This talk wonders what fuels such a persistent bias towards the tragic, how this has influenced the development of theory, and how this in turn might affect therapeutic practice.
This lecture explores the importance of going on relating to one's own wounds after one's own formal psychotherapy has ended, as a part of living and working as a psychotherapist.
