Event:Psychoanalytic Writing Workshop: Creativity in Clinical Composition
Venue:British Psychotherapy Foundation 37 Mapesbury Road London, NW2 4HJ
Date:11/05/2019
Duration:2h
Extra Info:This workshop with professor Josh Cohen will explore the problems and possibilities of psychoanalytic writing.

Why do its generic boundaries and forms seem so rigidly fixed? This tendency seems especially curious (as well as ironic) when we consider the strong emphasis in much British psychoanalysis on nurturing creative freedom and the singular voice.

How might we discover and develop this creative freedom in our own writing? We will look at a few examples of psychoanalytic writing that might point the way here, and open up the discussion to the difficulties participants have experienced in their own attempts at writing about their work.
