About this training
This event runs over two days:
Friday 2nd August - 6.30pm - 9.30pm
Saturday 3rd August 10.30am - 5.30pm
This three-part seminar series will focus on the way we listen in a session, drawing on Jeff’s 20-year study of Bion. Dr Roger Bacon, leading Edinburgh-based analyst with over 35 years’ experience, will act as respondent.
The three parts of the seminar are:
1. Gathering the data of a session
2. The self and its circumstances
3. Listening as an open gate
This seminar series offers a rare opportunity to spend time in dialogue with one of the foremost thinkers in the Bion tradition today, and to hear Dr Roger Bacon’s response from his particular interest in weaving together the diverse strands of psychoanalytic thought. With ample opportunity for discussing clinical material, these seminars promise to enrich our own capacity for reflection and presence.
Both Jeff and Roger are interested in critical dialogue; sharing ideas coming directly from clinical work and different analytic orientations. We would very much welcome your input.
The schedule of the seminars also offers time to enjoy The Edinburgh Festival and The Fringe, the world’s most vibrant celebration of the performing arts.
Please join us for what promises to be a deeply enriching event. Due to space constraints at the venue, we will be limiting the seminar to 45 participants, so I encourage you to book early.
If you would like further information or have questions, please feel free to contact me by phone or email.
We look forward to welcoming you to the seminars.
