Event description

Description


This conference is presented by the renowned and world famous Women's Therapy Centre.

Women’s mental health is shaped to a large extent by social, economic, political and environmental factors.

We will be looking at the changes in feminist psychotherapy and the Women’s Therapy Centre since its inception in 1976 by Susie Orbach and Lusie Eichenbaum.  

Given the radical changes in the socio-economic and political climate over the last 40 years, the conference will explore where feminist psychotherapy is now, looking forward to what the future holds.

The conference will also examine the psychotherapeutic work that the Women’s Therapy Centre is currently doing to meet the mental health needs of 21st century women in the UK.

Working with mothers, refugees, asylum seekers, trafficked, abused, gender violence and black and minority ethnic groups and older Women.

The conference will hear from professionals, practitioners and policy analysts; we shall discuss the issues using feminist principles of collaboration.



The conference will be of interest to:

Mental Health Professionals and Practitioners

Women’s Studies practitioners

Feminists

Policy makers

Psychotherapists and counsellors

Students
