10th February, 2016, 6.00 pm, Seminar Room 6 at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London, Denmark Hill.
Dr.Jeremy Holmes will trace a philosophically-related journey from arguing in the 1970s for fostering autonomy as the specific contribution of psychotherapy to mental health, to a current psychodynamic perspective based in relational neuroscience and the acquisition of mentalising skills. Part autobiographical, part clinical, part philosophical, the talk will provide a warning about the contextual nature of one’s passionately held views, and offer pointers towards a 21st Century psychotherapy.
This event is free and all are welcome.
