Facebook, texting, surfing the net: New technologies and the privacy of the clinic, January 28th with Dr Sally Sales

In the contemporary technological age, the public world has become the stage for what was previously our most private communications. Mobiles now make it possible to conduct intimate conversations anywhere and to be always in touch, all of the time. Exposing our most private selves no longer seems a difficulty; indeed given the popularity of programmes like ‘Naked attraction’ and ‘Dating in the Dark, this exposure is actively sought. This workshop will explore the contribution new technologies have made to redrawing our notion of the private.  Has the privacy and confidentiality of therapy become irrelevant? What are the issues that these new social circumstances produce for people seeking therapy?

Sally Sales is an analyst and supervisor in private practice and chair of the Site SW training


Dreaming & Thinking: Dream processes in our waking lives, February 25th with Ilric Shetland

Most of us think that there is a huge gulf that separates our dream worlds from our ordinary life.  In this workshop this distinction between dreaming states and conscious states will be questioned.  We will explore what happens when we dream and whether these processes – condensation, displacement, reversal – are also happening  in our waking lives.  The clinical encounter is a space where these strange ways of being can be most clearly seen and  this workshop will focus on working with these dream like processes.

Ilric Shetland is a psychoanalyst in private practice and involved in the Site SW training


Workshops run from 1.00 – 4.00pm, with a short break at 2.30.
