AGIP Annual Lecture Translational Medicine in Psychotherapy- Jeremy Holmes

Translational Medicine in Psychotherapy by AGIP (Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy)

New paradigms are emerging in neuroscience and developmental psychology, but which have yet to impact on the world of psychotherapy. Using Friston’s active inference model and attachment-influenced child development findings I shall point to the strengths and limitations of current psychotherapy theories, and make suggestions for practice, training and research.

Jeremy Holmes MD FRCPsych

is visiting Professor at the University of Exeter, and author of numerous papers and books in the field of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and attachment, including  John Bowlby and Attachment Theory (2nd edition, Routledge 2013), The Therapeutic Imagination (Routledge 2014)

Ecotopias: Imagining Ecological Utopias


Join academics and activists, as we host a spirited panel discussion of competing visions for our environmental future. Meet the voices behind the debate and discuss with us as we imagine alternative ideas for our ecological future. This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2019.

A new wave of social movements have begun to mobilise around the topics of climate change, biodiversity and ecological issues, the most famous of which is Extinction Rebellion. However, this is not the only social movement, and their vision and tactics have been hotly contested. So, what are the alternatives? How can social movements create democratic changes from the grassroots?

Meet utopian and ecological scholars, along with activists at the front lines of eco-defense, to address these queries through panel presentations, discussion and a participatory mapping session.

Dr Rhiannon Firth from the Department of Sociology at the University of Essex will host this panel discussion at Resource for London. This venue is fully wheelchair accessible.

Members of the public, academics and participants in social movements are welcome to attend. Anyone interested in exploring alternative visions for our ecological future will find this event thought provoking and informative.

Speakers Include: 

Rhiannon Firth (University of Essex) Introduction & Welcome: What is the function of Utopia & its Role in Resisting Climate Change?

Heather Alberro (Nottingham Trent University): The Great Refusal: Literary and Social Movement Visions of Ecotopia.

John Warwick (Anarchist Federation) Market vs State vs Commons: Which Future are we Heading Towards?

Tim Waterman (University College London) The Tasty City: Visions of Future Flourishing

Recovering from Trauma III

Recovering from Trauma III: 3 Research Backed Ways To Heal Childhood Trauma

This event will highlight specific ways people suffering from Childhood Trauma/Complex PTSD can find relief from their symptoms.

These approaches have years of research behind them, with specific work done on using them to help with PTSD and Complex PTSD.

This event will feature presentations from experienced practitioners on:

1. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

2. Equine Therapy

3. Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy and Holotropic Breathwork

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy has peer backed research behind this and connects the trauma sufferer back to their body, building boundaries and also using mindfulness and building somatic resources.

Equine Therapy is a way of learning new ways of reacting and behaviour using the gentle wisdom of horses. Horses respond to the emotional issues which people bring to the work. There is more evidence that Equine Therapy can help with Childhood Trauma/Complex PTSD such as the September 2018 Journal of Child & Adolescent Trauma reporting on a study that Equine Assisted Psychotherapy may be beneficial for traumatised youth with Complex Trauma.

Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy is growing in interest as an effective way for healing many mental health-related issues which other treatments often are unable to assist with. With certain psychedelics such as Psilocybin available legally in the Netherlands with therapeutic supervision available and in the UK, Holotropic Breathwork practices available, this is a fascinating area to explore to see if this could help you. Presented by the Former Consultant Psychiatrist at the Royal London Hospital leading the Psychiatric Liasion Service and the Crisis Intervention Service from 1992 to 2013.

Book Launch! OYINBO CAME TO AFRICA By Dele Ogun

ABOUT THE BOOK

This book tells the story, with beautiful illustrations, of how Europeans and Arabs came to Africa, from mid-15th century onwards with their religions and model of civilisation, and how this changed the African way of life. It covers the arrival of Islam and Christianity; the Slave Trade and Abolition; Colonisation and Decolonisation; Africa’s centrality to the First and Second World Wars; Democracy and Military Coups.

Though the book is deep in what it covers the reading is light and so it is suitable for all ages. If you loved the book "A FATHERLESS PEOPLE" you will love this. If you hate to read, worry no more, the exciting illustrations tell the story even more powerfully than words.

Planet or profit? Can politics and economics be spiritual? Talk by Felicity Eliot Editor of Share International Magazine

As our political and economic systems break down, people are demanding social justice, and economic and ecological sustainability.

Against a background of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings this talk will explore the need for radical change.

How do we make politics and economics work for the good of all?

Join us for a hopeful analysis of what is emerging from today’s confusion into clarity and justice for all.

Info: www.share-international.org/uk

When you share you create justice. When you have justice you create trust. When you have trust peace becomes possible.

Only the equitable redistribution of the world’s resources – food, raw materials, science and technology – as an internationally agreed system will ensure a sustainable future for people and planet. Sharing is the key.

How to Avoid Climate Breakdown by New Internationalist

How to Avoid Climate Breakdown by New Internationalist

Grassroots organisations like Extinction Rebellion have done a fantastic job of getting the climate emergency into the public consciousness, and with recent polls showing a surge in concern about climate change in the UK, there’s another, urgent piece of work that needs to done: educating people as to where the real answers to this crisis might lie. In the May-June 2019 issue of New Internationalist, we told a story about the ideas and actions – social, economic and political – that can get us out of this mess and preserve a habitable planet. In it, we make the case for ‘conditional optimism’. We believe we can still avoid the worst of climate change because we see the tools and movements emerging to help us tackle it and bring about the system change that’s needed.

So join us to discuss the genuine, transformative solutions to climate change as our panel consider the scale of change that’s needed, what has not worked and why, and how we can move from ideas to action.

Speakers include:

Alice Bell - 10:10

Hazel Healy - New Internationalist

Dr Iain Bourne has been delivering this unique course for many years and is well known and respected in the social care field.

The aim of this day is to take participants on a fascinating and practical journey through the world of violence and danger. The training unfolds through a series of critical incidents that are narrated and dramatised before the group, bringing the material to life and allowing the participants to consider in detail the point of crisis and the skills needed to achieve a successful resolution.
