THE STATE WE ARE IN: PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR INTERESTING TIMES 1 July 2017

The Guild of Psychotherapists presents an exciting afternoon of drama and discussion on Saturday 1 July 2017. Called The State We Are In: Psychotherapy for Interesting Times, the afternoon begins with a vibrant professional reading of Josh Appignanesi’s new play, Well Being, in which rival therapists go head to head over dinner, exposing each other’s limitations – whatever the cost. The play tackles with comic aplomb the clash between cognitive behavioural and psychoanalytic therapies – and how these two approaches relate to the modern managerial state’s desire to quantify and control.

Afterwards, a panel will respond to the play, bringing wide-ranging perspectives about the most urgent priorities for contemporary psychotherapy. The panel consists of Josh Appignanesi, filmmaker (The New Man, The Infidel) and playwright; Haya Oakley, psychoanalyst; Dr Judith Anderson, Jungian analytic psychotherapist and member of the Climate Psychology Alliance; and Dr Phil Mollon, psychoanalyst and energy psychotherapist.
