STATES OF MIND:
DEVELOPMENT AND THE LIFE CYCLE

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.
