Susie Orbach at Birmingham Literature Festival
Saturday 5 October

We are excited to announce that WMIP's guest at this year's Birmingham Literature Festival will be Susie Orbach. You will know her as one of this country's foremost psychotherapists as well as being a ground-breaking feminist thinker and activist, who has published extensively on women and psychotherapy and who is active publicly in bringing psychoanalytic thinking to social, cultural and political issues.

Susie will be in conversation with Rachel Dunkley Jones, on Saturday 5 October 2019 at 3 pm.

Susie Orbach is one of this country's foremost psychotherapists as well as being a ground-breaking feminist thinker and activist. Co-founder of the Women's Therapy Centre in the 1970s, she has for many decades explored how our inner worlds are shaped by our social and political contexts - and vice versa.

In this event, Susie will talk about the fractured state of our society, in conversation with analytical psychotherapist Rachel Dunkley Jones. How do current social divisions and anxieties affect our psyches? And how might psychoanalytic thinking help us not only understand the times we live in but also intervene to change them?

Susie's most recent book is In Therapy: The Unfolding Story, following the Radio 4 series of the same name.

Book your ticket here >> There is a discount for WMIP members.

The event will be gripping not just for therapists, but for anyone who is interested in feminism, and in how to think about the current political juncture. Please pass the information to anyone who might be interested.
