Event description
Susie Orbach is coming to Cambridge to present a bespoke integration of her updated books, 'Bodies' and 'In Therapy'.

About this Event

For one day only, Susie Orbach is in Cambridge to host a special, bespoke, one-day conference integrating the theories from her book, Bodies, and the clinical issues and dilemmas covered in  'In Therapy'.

The day long conference on Saturday 08 February 2020 at Buckingham House Conference Centre, Murray Edwards College, Cambridge, is your chance to listen, interact and engage with Susie Orbach -  psychotherapist, psychoanalyst and writer.

Do come prepared with case studies you would like to put forward to discuss - this is a unique opportunity to learn and develop using your case.

Morning

Susie will discuss her recent work on the body and how she has come to theorise it, using clinical examples. She will also introduce the BODI - the Body Observational Diagnostic Interview, which practitioners can use to help in their work. Following the lecture, there will be an opportunity to present your own case material for discussion with Susie.

Afternoon

Susie will explore various themes including First sessions, Anger, Trouble in couples, Abandonment, and what was said by the therapist and why, using the BBC In Therapy series. There will be a further opportunity for participants to critique this and to bring their own case material and to understand the how, why and when of interventions.

Tea, coffee, breakfast and lunch included.
