disabled access

The story of Oedipus can be used to explore significant aspects of emotional development from many perspectives, and the myth was the foundation for Freud's theory of the Oedipus complex - mainly unconscious feelings of wanting to possess the parent of the opposite sex. On 26 January, Oedipus in Adolescence will continue the exploration of Oedipus through the lifecycle, following events on infancy and childhood held in 2012. Psychoanalyst Hannah Solemani will talk about adolescence and understanding the developmental process as well as the treatment of worrying adolescents, and psychiatrist Dickon Bevington will give a talk on the use of mentalisation-based practices to support street level work with hard-to-reach youth. The event will be chaired by psychoanalyst Catalina Bronstein.
