Event description

Description

Carl Rogers, Nietzsche & Bowlby; Learn about the makers of modern psychotherapy.

Recent years have seen an explosion in demand for psychological therapies worldwide.

In the UK alone, 1.4 million were in therapy in 2017.

And with good reason..

Research shows that 8 out of 10 people are better off after therapy, than the average person who does not have therapy. That’s a higher rate of effectiveness than antidepressants, sleeping pills, and most medical treatments.

But who are the individuals behind this cultural phenomenon? And what can we learn from their work?

In this lecture series, we’ll explore the key ideas and individuals that have shaped modern approaches to psychotherapy.

You'll learn:

  • John Bowlby, Attachment Theory and Psychotherapy; the role of attachment in psychotherapy, and the neuro-biological underpinnings of the therapeutic relationship
  • Carl Rogers and Person-Centred Therapy; an introduction to Rogers’ life and work, and the theory, practice and evidence base for Person-Centred Therapy

  • Nietzsche & Psychotherapy; the unexplored psychological reaches of Nietzsche’s thought, as well as their implications for psychotherapeutic practice.

You’ll learn how these insights can benefit your own life, but also your ability to help others too.
