2021 SEA Annual Conference – “You couldn’t possibly understand!”
November 6 @ 9:30 am - 5:30 pm£35.00 – £70
This year’s Conference topic has been brewing for me for some time. I have been moved by my own experiences of clients feeling it is simply not possible for “you to understand what I’ve been through!” And I have also felt encouraged and challenged by the feedback from our very first Census, that now is the time.
The response from people wishing to present has been overwhelming. We have incredibly creative and thought-provoking presentations and workshops covering a diverse range of topics from:
Alix Velasco ~ Chris Goto-Jones ~ Cristalle Hayes ~ Devang Vaidya ~ Dida Mitchell & Jyoti Nanda ~ Elv Moody ~ Haran Rasalingam & Maria Galani ~ Juli Jolly ~ Leanne Prosvic ~ Manu Bazzano ~ Marc Boaz ~ Marium Akhund ~ Niki D ~ Paola Pomponi & Serena Fianco ~ Rafał Miętkiewicz ~ Stella Duffy & Chris Cleave
Speaking to the things that make us all different. The struggles both therapist and client encounter when the distance between us and our experience feels immense. The assumptions we make of each other based on the lives we are living. And the incredible capacity for change, enlightenment, and compassion that our differences can bring about.
While there is a universality to our shared humanity, the human experience is vast and the lenses through which we each experience ourselves myriad.
Nietzsche wrote, “… Everybody wants the same, everybody is the same: whoever feels different goes voluntarily into a madhouse.” True? But perhaps there is an important counterpoint to note, that “Freedom means nothing, unless it means the freedom to be different” (Rubin)
We do hope you’ll join us in challenging the status quo.
