We live and work in a time of global crisis. How do we tackle the tensions between political governance of populations and the intimate governance of bodies and selves in our creative-therapeutic relationships?
Bodies and language are never neutral: gender, dis/ability, sexuality, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, class and religion are socio-political aspects that shape our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical selves and inform ours and our clients’ experience of power, privilege and social inequity.
This conference will be
for therapists with an interest in the links between social justice and therapeutic practice.
a chance to explore the role that embodiment may have in this relationship: our social, psychological and biological being.
focused on how social and political conditions impact on the bodies of our clients and ourselves; and how, as consciously embodied beings, we can develop new creative and radical approaches to promoting social change.
a space for exploring our own tangled personal-political, creative and embodied perspectives.
participative and engaging: international practitioners and scholars from across the psychological and arts therapies and beyond will facilitate groups and workshops, discuss, perform and screen their work.
a place to consider the implications and envisage a future that takes forward this vital project.
This conference is relevant to: psychotherapists, arts therapists, counsellors, therapeutic practitioners, artists, researchers, social workers and people who use services in a range of settings (e.g. hospitals, schools, IAPT, care homes, universities, arts centers, and in private practice).
