Book Now CPD Newsletter

This webinar covers the clinical, social and philosophical themes covered in the second half of Minkins’s book: Radical-Relational Perspectives in Transactional Analysis.

These include questions and ideas on how to recover from alienation, oppression and systems of dependency. There will be a combination of theory presentation, clinical examples, reflective exercises and discussion.  The workshop will be relevant for those interested in social, cultural and political perspectives in counselling and psychotherapy.  It will be of interest to practitioners who want to understand more about recovering from power dynamics such as coercive control and the way in which contemporary theory is considering deconstruction and reconstruction. Participants may take away some fresh perspectives on their work towards recovery in clients.
