Can psychoanalysis help reflective practice in social work, and can social work theory benefit psychoanalysis?

Conversation starts - 10.30am

Prof. Harry Ferguson from the University of Birmingham in dialogue with Andrew Balfour from Tavistock Relationships

Harry Ferguson has been theorising and conducting empirical studies into social work practice since the 1990s. His most recent article How social workers reflect in action and when and why they don’t: the possibilities and limits to reflective practice in social work draws from psychoanalytic theory to understand how social workers’ reflective practice is impacted by a need to defend against the sensory and emotional impact of the work and the high anxiety they experience.

Andrew Balfour is Chief Executive of the charity Tavistock Relationships and was previously the Clinical Director. He is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, a chartered clinical psychologist and also qualified as a couple psychotherapist. He has published a number of papers in the field and taught and lectured widely both in Britain and abroad.
