Event description
First Thursday seminar with Manu Bazzano: 'Against Attachment Theory', hosted by the Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry

About this event

Secure base, healing, integration are the main themes in most psychological approaches and are now pervasive in mainstream culture. Attachment theory provides a reductive understanding of mental distress through excessive focus on familialism and a falsely symmetrical and politically dubious notion of relatedness. It has also succeeded in neutering the more subversive and innovative insights present in areas of psychoanalysis/psychotherapy. Can a different view and a a different praxis be articulated?

Dr Manu Bazzano is an author, psychotherapist, and a student of Zen. Among his books: Buddha is Dead; Spectre of the Stranger; Nietzsche and Psychotherapy; Re-Visioning Existential Therapy, and the forthcoming Daydreams and Subversions.

This event will be held via Zoom. The details will be found in the Order Confirmation you receive following registration.

*Those in Edinburgh are welcome to join us socially after the seminar to keep the conversation going. We'll be going to Doctors on Forrest Road.*
