*** Needs a Cafe E host. Any volunteers *** Chat and think over a drink. Café Psychologique is about people’s lives approached through the ideas of psychology, psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. This month's topic, Looking On The Bright Side, introduced by Cinical Psychologist, Dr Carol Martin.
The Café is convened by a Group Analyst (a psychoanalyst who specialises in running groups) and resourced by experts in psychology and psychotherapy and the conversation is driven by the participants in the Café and the areas they want to discuss, based around the theme of that particular meeting. People are free to talk about whatever they want, and the art of Group Analysis is to recruit the resource provided by the group to enable exploration and discovery, whether discussing relationships, creativity, ageing, sex, parenthood, consumerism, the arts, death or cricket. Change happens through conversation.
