Play reading and panel discussion - 1st July 2017 posted by Jane Clements

The Guild of Psychotherapists are hosting an exciting afternoon of drama and discussion on July 1st, 2017. 

Venue: Kings College Waterloo Stamford Street London SE1 8WA. Arrive at 1pm performance starts at 1.30pm. Panel discussion until 5pm.

Called The state we are In, Psychotherapy for interesting times,  the afternoon begins with  a vibrant  professional reading of Josh Appignanesi's new play,  where  rival therapists go head to head over dinner, exposing each other's limitations - whatever the cost.  Josh says that Well, Being 'tackles with comic aplomb the clash between cognitive behavioural and psychoanalytic therapies - and how these two approaches relate to the modern managerial State's desire to quantify and control'.

Afterwards, a fabulous panel of discussants respond  to the play,  bringing wide ranging perspectives about  the most urgent priorities for contemporary  psychotherapy:

Josh Appignanesi , Filmmaker (The New Man, The Infidel) and playwright

Haya Oakley, Psychoanalyst

Dr Judith Anderson, Jungian Analytic Psychotherapist, of the Climate Psychology Alliance

Dr Phil Mollon, Psychoanalyst and Energy Psychotherapist
