"The Naked Self"

With Keynote Speaker
Dr Zefiro Mellacqua

ONLINE EVENT

20th November
9:30 - 4:30pm GMT
Followed by the AGM

BOOKING NOW CLOSED

Dear Members,

We are honoured that this year we have as our Keynote Speaker Dr Zefiro Mellacqua a psychiatrist and transactional analyst. Zefiro will be presenting some aspects of his work with people with schizophrenia and their families.  He will draw on his recent publication “Transactional Analysis of Schizophrenia, The Naked Self”, in the book series “Innovations in Transactional Analysis Theory and Practice”  

His work and writing are a profound witnessing of the suffering of people who have this and other deep disturbances of the Self.  It is testimony to the depth and efficacy of Transactional Analysis and is a must read for all psychotherapists who work with fragile self-processes.  Transactional Analysts have always addressed psychiatric illness courageously and confidently using the theories and methods of their time.  Zefiro’s work follows in this tradition and he uses and adds to contemporary Transactional Analysis theory and approaches to further our understanding.

We will address how Zefiro’s ideas and work may also apply to our work with clients who are also described as having a serious disturbance of self in their lives.  There will be time to listen and contribute and we warmly invite you to join us and Zefiro for the day for conversation and learning.

Zefiro will be joined by a panel of invited discussants, Mica Douglas, Geoff Hopping, Ray Little and Carole Shadbolt

At the end of the day there will be an AGM to which all members are invited.
We look forward to seeing you there, we will send you details of the programme nearer the time

Warm wishes.
