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).
