The Skin around the Self

 

A training workshop led by Dr Maggie Turp

 

New date: Saturday 16th September 2017

10am - 4pm

London Therapy Foundation

40 Lambert Avenue, Richmond TW9 4QR

 

This workshop revolves around three related states of mind: feeling properly contained within a skin, ‘falling apart’ when skin containment fails, and holding or pulling oneself together in the face of inadequate skin containment

 

These experiences are of central significance in our lives as those in a ‘fallen apart’, incoherent state can no longer operate as an embodied ‘I’ located in space and time, and defences come into play when the psychic skin containment is compromised.

 

The day will include:

The story of skin containment: Esther Bick and others

‘In the moment’ and ‘narrative’ aspects of skin containment

Skin boundaries, skin defences

Skin containment issues in the consulting room – please bring clinical (or personal) experiences
