Part 2: Psychotherapy – Ideas for Our Time

Saturday 21 September 2019

Speakers: Dr Mark Solms, Dr Christoph Mathys plus two further speakers to be confirmed

Venue: The Human Rights Action Centre, 17/25 New Inn Yard, London, EC2A 3EA

 The second conference focuses on us as clinicians, who may wish to rethink or expand some psychotherapeutic ideas. Doing so entails a form of trust in newly evolving knowledge within science.  Trust, of course, has to be earned through questioning. As we do not wish to descend into scientism, what will this new area and its discoveries mean to us?

Here we intend to cover some of the findings of neuroscience about adolescence and schizophrenia as well as other mental problems and disorders. The focus here is on the contribution that findings in neuroscience may make to clinical practice and how understanding found in our clinical practice should influence how we interpret the experimental science.

The program will include led workshops, discussions and plenary while making full use of the space at the venue
