MAY 2018

Saturday 12 May - JTC Public Lecture

WHY DON'T PSYCHOTHERAPISTS LAUGH? ENJOYMENT AND THE CONSULTING ROOM
Ann Shearer

Humour, enjoyment and lightness of heart find relatively little place in the literature of depth psychology, where the sombre themes of mourning and loss, anger and hatred remain predominant. This talk wonders what fuels such a persistent bias towards the tragic, how this has influenced the development of theory, and how this in turn might affect therapeutic practice.
