About the event

Dear all, as some of you may have already put in your diaries, we are so very lucky that next Saturday June 8th we will be welcoming Rosemary Rizq to give her paper titled The Modern Myths of IAPT. There will be time for a discussion about the presentation as well as a discussion of whether we wish to respond in any way as part of the union. Here’s the short blurb taken from the 'PCCS books' website about Rosemary’s paper, which she will also be giving on June 15th, see here:

‘The modern myths of IAPT

Rosemary Rizq starts by unpicking the ‘modern myths’ that underpin the rapid rise and expansion of the government’s IAPT programme. She will argue these myths serve to obscure rather than reveal the social, cultural, economic and political factors underlying the current rise in mental distress.

Rosemary Rizq is a BPS Chartered Psychologist and a UKCP-accredited psychoanalytic psychotherapist. She is Professor of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the University of Roehampton.’
