Keeping Risk in Mind

    at The Athenaeum, Angel Hill, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 1LU

Saturday 21st March 2020.

10.00am – 5.00pm (registration and coffee from 9.15am)

A conference for psychoanalytic and psychodynamic psychotherapists and other clinicians whose work brings them into contact with crucial issues of safety and risk. We will examine how – whether working as an individual practitioner or as part of a team – we hold such risks in mind in the course of the care we aim to give to our patients. 

Why has risk become such an intense preoccupation for clinicians and in the wider political and social context? Thoughts for 2020.
