Quarterly Meeting for Members and Colleagues for professional contact, dialogue and development (QMMAC)
Friday 7th September 2018, 9.30 am – 4.00 pm
Edinburgh Quaker Meeting House, central Edinburgh
Fee: £30 (£15 for IGA Students)
For our meeting this month we welcome presentations from up to four contributors on the theme, "At the Edges".
The material presented will be on thoughts or experiences prompted by the theme, and the presentation can take any form.
To start us off Liz McLure, Training Group Analyst resident on the Ardnamurchan peninsula, will talk about her experience of setting up a therapy practice on the Western edge of the Scottish mainland
These meetings offers the exciting opportunity to meet colleagues from group analysis, psychoanalysis and related professional fields for a shared experience of large group work and a series of presentations relating to the theme of working as a psychotherapist in Scotland.
We convene regular meetings on a quarterly basis throughout the year, offering continuity of contact and shared professional development.
This is an enjoyable and supportive meeting giving space for thinking, dialogue and learning. It is hoped that regular meetings serve to reduce feelings of professional isolation, stimulate creative discussion and strengthen a developing sense of the psychodynamic/psychoanalytic work offered by colleagues, whether or not group analysts.
Through shared learning and dialogue, we grow stronger and more confident about our work and its place in the psychotherapeutic milieu.
This event is suitable for past and present trainees in group analysis (at any level), group analysts, individual psychoanalysts, and colleagues in other fields.
