Contemporary Neurobiology & Psychotherapy Seminars

A series of three evening seminars

Venue: A08, Institute of Mental Health, Triumph Road, Nottingham, NG7 2TU

Seminar dates: 20th September, 11th October and 1st November 2017

Time: 17.30 – 19.00

Cost: £54.00 to attend all 3 seminars

Facilitated by: Margaret Wilkinson, Jungian Analyst

About the seminar series:
This series of seminars will be of interest to psychotherapists, psychologists, clinicians in psychiatry and other qualified professionals working therapeutically with adults or children.

Now in its eighth year, the seminars will explore a selection of research-oriented chapters from the 2017 book 'How People Change. Relationships and Neuroplasticity in Psychotherapy', edited by Marion Solomon and Daniel J. Siegel in The Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology.

Members may bring clinical material for discussion within the group setting so that clinical work can be considered in the light of a psychodynamic response to this research evidence.

There will be up to 25 places available and a commitment to all seminars is desirable.

A certificate of attendance will be provided for CPD purposes.

Some feedback from the previous seminar series:

  • Really valuable seminars and great learning.
  • I really enjoyed the challenging nature of the materials and the stimulating exploration facilitated sensitively and inconclusively by Margaret in a very interesting and diverse group of professionals. Many thanks for making this available.
  • This seminar series is essential for practicing psychotherapists to maintain their connection with knowledge
  • I enjoyed the opportunity to talk, listen and read i.e discuss the content of what we read and to hear peoples perspectives. Some content was a good refresher of training literature and some was adding a new perspective. A good balance of refreshing and learning for me
