Engaging directly with our current context, this year’s Summer Conference will be held online. The Conference will consider what is emerging from our experience of the coronavirus pandemic: losses, inequalities and narcissistic wounds, relationships in the virtual world and hopes for new and creative understandings. We welcome your attendance and sharing in this reflective event.
Speakers & Panel Members:
