Event description

Description

Psychotherapy has recently experienced the turn to relationality, and the turn to the body. Now we are beginning to see the turn outside – out of the consulting room, out of the obsessive focus on the private world of humans, and towards a realisation that we are wholly dependent on the wider world of which we are a part, on the other than human and more than human, on the wildness that surrounds and contains our familiar domesticity.

In this presentation Nick will explore two areas:

Firstly, the practice of taking therapy outdoors – why we do it, how we do it, and how it changes the therapeutic frame and process.

Secondly, what happens when we bring the outdoors back into the therapy room: how it leads us to revise our conceptions of what therapy is, and of the relationship between individuals and larger networks, in ways which support a deeper, humbler and wilder approach to our work.

Nick Totton says:

I am a psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor with nearly 35 years’ experience. I originally trained as a neo-Reichian body psychotherapist, since when my approach has become broad based and open to the spontaneous and unexpected. I established a training in my own synthesis, Embodied-Relational Therapy, which has been thriving for around twenty years. My book Wild Therapy (one of eleven so far) is published by PCCS Books. I have a grown up daughter. I live in Cornwall with my partner and grow vegetables. www.nicktotton.ne
