Laughing Matters: humour, jokes and psychotherapy

Convened by:

Martin Weegmann & Linda-Mary Edwards

Saturday 29th September 2018, 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM, Institute of Group Analysis
1 Daleham Gardens, London NW3 5BY

Why do we laugh? What is the purpose of jokes?  How does laughter work in groups?  What is the role of play in psychotherapy?

These and other questions are explored in this novel workshop, involving Foulksean and Jungian perspectives.  We will be joined by Ann Shearer, Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists [or IGAP], and author of Why Don't Psychotherapists Laugh.
