One hundred years ago, in 1918, Freud offered his vision of a “psychotherapy for the people”, available free of charge to all those in need. This vision was realised a few years later, first of all in Berlin and Vienna, where out-patient clinics and in-patient sanatoria provided free treatment. The social ambition was, in Freud’s words, to “help these sufferers in their struggle to fulfil the demands of civilization”.
In this conference, the Institute of Psychoanalysis celebrates the 70th anniversary of the NHS. The contributors show the creativity of contemporary psychoanalysis in mental health services, ranging from the general practitioner, to psychiatric teams, to out-patient psychotherapy departments.
This conference is for:
- GPs, mental health nurses and care workers
- Psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, and IAPT workers
- Clinical managers, commissioners, researchers
- Those involved in supervising and training, individually or in Balint, reflective practice, and other groups
