Attachment, Relationships and Food: From Cradle to Kitchen, Friday 28th January 2022

This unique reading group is now entering its 17th year and is still going strong. We are delighted to be able to offer an opportunity to explore, examine and enjoy the books below. Our presenters have been stimulating and challenging, and have introduced us to new delights or opened up fresh vistas onto pre-loved favourites.

Although many participants have been trainees and practising counsellors or psychotherapists, everyone is welcome to attend. If you are thinking of attending for the first time or have enjoyed one of the previous sessions, why not tell a friend and encourage them to come along too. Please read the book before attending.

All are welcome to attend this event.

'Attachment, Relationships and Food: From Cradle to Kitchen’ edited by Linda Cundy Led by Linda Cundy

Where there is food, there is attachment. This book explores relationships with other people, with oneself, and between client and therapist through our connection with food. We comfort, nurture, numb, neglect or attack ourselves through what we consume; food metaphors spice up a therapy session or, more concretely, clients may bring breakfast or edible gifts into the consulting room. Preparing meals and sharing them are therapeutic activities in themselves, helping to bring together couples, groups, and communities.

The aim of this book is twofold: to examine the nature of attachment through narratives of feeding, and to enrich psychotherapy practice by encouraging exploration of clients’ food-related memories and associations. Like individual courses of a feast, every chapter has its own distinct flavour, but each author addresses the complex connection between what we eat and how we relate from an attachment perspective.

Target Audience:

All are welcome to attend this event.
