Spring Conference 2009

‘Analysts Evading Analysis’

Speaker: William Meredith-Owen

Uffculme Centre
Queensbridge Road, Moseley,

Saturday, April 4th, 2008

Both Freud and Jung resisted analysis by the other and Bion spoke of patients becoming practitioners rather than suffering analysis – is this a perennial problem for psychoanalysts and psychotherapists?

William Meredith-Owen is a Professional Member of the Society of Analytical Psychology and is involved in their training programme. He is a longstanding assistant editor and frequent contributor to the Journal of Analytical Psychology: most recently publishing a clinical study of analyses obstructed by unconscious envy entitled, “‘Go, Sterilise the Fertile with Thy Rage!’ Envy as Embittered Desire”. He is in full-time private practise in London and Stratford-Upon-Avon

The Conference format comprises a presentation by William Meredith-Owen, followed by small discussion groups. Lunch will follow, after which there will be presentations by two respondents from WMIP and a final plenary.
