This workshop introduces participants to Paul Terry’s* new publication, focusing on the first chapter titled: Destructive Superego and Depression.  The 3 hour workshop consists of two 1.15 hour sessions including case study discussion and is suitable for trainee and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who are not familiar with Paul’s work and have not attended his previous workshops or webinars.

In his book Paul introduces his new publication providing an intimate portrait of a clinician’s psychoanalytic approach to working in the public health sector with people suffering acute and chronic emotional pain.

Drawing on central psychoanalytic concepts, he weaves together a unique and distinctive psychoanalytically based approach to psychotherapeutic work. He illustrates this approach using personal case studies of his work with people suffering with depression, psychosis, dependency, loneliness, dementia, and terminal illness. He illustrates how his approach helps him to understand social and political issues of war, the holocaust, entitlement, and sexual identity. For readers unfamiliar with psychoanalytic theory, the book concludes with an appendix including a summary of Kleinian psychoanalytic concepts and psychoanalytic studies of psychosis.

* Paul Terry is a consultant clinical psychologist in private practice. During a career in public health spanning four decades, Paul has worked in child, adolescent, adult mental health, forensic settings, and latterly in a specialist mental health service for older people. In tandem with clinical practice, he was lecturer in Counselling at Birkbeck College, University of London.
