The members of the Philadelphia Association were thanked for their hospitality and openness and congratulated on continuing to provide a stimulating training of a very high standard that continued to attract committed trainees of a very high calibre attracted to the psychoanalytic project of the Association. The Association continues to be a valued Organisational Member of the CPJA [Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis], distinctive in their approach and thinking, and important in their critique of dominant therapeutic cultures.

Seminar 1, Feb 3rd

 

Kingsley Hall Journals

When living in Kingsley Hall for fourteen months (1966-67) I wrote journals. These re-incarnated (2003-06) when I edited them for an MA in Performance Writing at Dartington College of Arts. 

I will read from these, and give them context, as a basis for discussion.

Seminar 2, Feb 10th 

 

Writing ‘I’: Autography, Autobiography and Autobiothanatography.

I am sending you my dissertation for that MA. I’ll introduce it, and we’ll discuss what may be going on when we write ‘I’. You may like to engage in a couple of writing exercises between the two seminars.

 

Relevant Bio:

 

I trained in philosophically-based psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the Philadelphia Association from 1970 to 1974. After Kingsley Hall, I was a house therapist to several PA households from 1970 to 1988, including being an initiator of the Archway Community, and sole therapist to The Grove. After moving to Somerset with young family in 1985 (commuting to London for three years), I chaired the Severnside Institute for Psychotherapy for six years. I am a founder member of Climate Psychology Alliance. I have often taught and lectured, and have published various writings in books and journals – titles include ‘Hazards to Desire,’ Schreber’s fall,’ ‘Staying close to the subject,’ and ‘Listening with many ears.’
