Our meeting place is very central and at walking distance from: City Centre, Stephans Dome, Imperial Castle: , so please apply early.Presenters have to be arranged well ahead for these workshops and so we wish to incentivise those registering early.Large Group Plenaries Friday and Saturday Afternoon, Sunday morning.
In the sessions we discuss, taken from our workshops, the psychoanalysts presenting or group members responding to presenters, often seem to feel painfully under threat and obligation, as we have noted before.
It can then lead to heroic or special measures to accommodate patients – for example, through feeling forced, for the sake of the survival of the patient or the analysis, to adjust fees and technique (such as whether or not to interpret transference directly) or to adjust the setting by accepting telephone, Skype or face-to-face sessions.
A particular feature of these situations is that group members are absolutely convinced either that the adjustment is or is not absolutely necessary.
The workshops last for about ten hours in total and use the CCM method of discussion.
The workshops are informed by the ongoing work of the CCM Association moderators for the past fifteen years.
