10 Seminars: An Introduction To The Work Of W.R. Bion

10 Seminars: An Introduction To The Work Of W.R. Bion

An Introduction To The Work Of W.R. Bion
10 Seminars with Simon Good

Psychoanalysis seen through the Bion’s eyes is a radical departure from all conceptualisations which preceded him. We have not the slightest hesitation in saying that he is the deepest thinker within psychoanalysis – and this statement does not exclude Freud. (Symington & Symington, 1996,p. xii)

This series of seminars will focus on some of the main concepts to be found in Bion’s writings. Bion brought a piercing light into classical analytic theory and technique. For Bion, theory was only one aspect of becoming a therapist, more crucial is truth. He believed that the therapist is in a never ending process of becoming authentic.

The aim of the seminars will be to meet the Bion who has been described as Mystic, psychotic, visionary, genius. Nowadays, Bion is a major influence in modern analytic thinking, particularly in Italy, Spain and South America.

These seminars, aim put you ‘in touch’ with Bion’s thinking. All his major ideas will be explored, Language of achievement, reverie, truth, O, transformations, container-contained, dreaming, becoming, thoughts without a thinker, the grid, and many more.

Self harm: A psychoanalytic approach Workshop

A one day workshop for counsellors and psychotherapists
with Anna Santamouris – Psychodynamic Psychotherapist.

Saturday 17th March 2018
10am – 4pm

This workshop will look at suicide and other forms of self harm (cutting, eating
disorders, addiction) and the unconscious forces that compel the individual to
attack itself.

We will look at the origins of suicidal wishes; the conflict between ego and
superego and the presence of depression in certain pathological states
associated with self harm.

We will consider splitting and projective identification as the mechanisms
patients use to split good from bad in the internal world and then locating the
bad in the body which is then destroyed.

We will also spend time trying to understand the feelings evoked in the therapist
in sessions in which the client is in the grip of aggressive and destructive
impulses, and in understanding the transference and counter transference while
working with this client group.

The workshop will combine presentation of psychoanalytic theory and in depth
client material to gain a greater understanding of self harm and how to work
with it in the consulting room.
There will be interactive discussions and case examples to explore working with
this historically difficult client group.

• Participants will also have an opportunity to discuss their own experiences.

Venue:  ECS, St Paul’s Centre, 102A Church Street, Enfield, EN2 6PR
Cost:  £60.00 (£50.00 for Registered Members of ECS)
