speaker_margotwadell_insidelives1Chair: Jane Cassidy

~~~~~~~~~

This study day with Margot Waddell provides a perspective on the relationship between psychoanalytic theory and the nature of human development.

Following the major developmental phases from infancy to old age and drawing upon a wide range of clinical, non-clinical and literary examples, Margot explores those vital aspects of experience which promote mental and emotional growth and those which impede it. The day offers a detailed and accessible examination of contemporary psychoanalytic thought and provide a personal and vivid approach to the elusive question of how the personality develops.

This study is of interest to therapists and other practitioners working with children, young people and adults within social work, education and health settings as well as researchers, academics and those working in private practice.

Margot Waddell is a Psychoanalyst and Consultant Psychotherapist in the Adolescent Department at the Tavistock Clinic. Margot is editor of the Tavistock Clinic Book Series and is the author of Inside Lives, Psychoanalysis and the Growth of the Personality.

Jane Cassidy is in private practice in London where she has set up a group practice of independent child and adult psychotherapists. She is Co-chair of the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists Child and Adolescent Division and Chair of the Independent Practice Committee of the ACP. Jane has has written about her special interest in childhood depression.

    I’m from Mexico. I’m psychiatrist and psychoanalist. I’ve been attending to The International Psychoterapy Institute in Washington D.C. I took the course offered by the Institute about Object Relations Theory and Practice, during this time the chair of the program, Pat Hedegard presented us your book, which since the begining was very evocative for me. I form an study group in Mexico and we have been reading and discusing your book. For all of us has been a very interesting experience. So thank you so much.
