An exploration of thinking under extreme interpersonal conditions | Monday, 30. November 2020
About this Event
Steve Bambrough and Louise Allnutt will set the scene with a look at some of the key theories of Freud, Bion, Klein and others. They will look at the formation of thinking capacity from a developmental perspective. They will then go on to illustrate some of this from their clinical experience of working with patients who have fragmented thoughts and projections and whose projections actively undermine the capacity for thought.
Steve and Louise will explore their thoughts on what it is (and what it might mean) to create a space in the mind for thinking activity which can hold on to and contain anxiety (primitive emotions) while being able to hold on to doubt and work creatively at producing thoughts/feelings. Reflecting via the use of another mind in supervision or team reflection will be explored. They will also touch on some of the physiological aspects of this process.
This talk is part of our Centenary webinar series.
