Boarding School Syndrome: Girls and their Bodies | Monday 21st June
Monday 21st June 2021 – An Online event
Girls at boarding schools experience a male identified cold institutional response to their growth and emerging sexual identity.
An event hosted by Bristol Psychotherapy Association an Online event
with Prof Joy Schaverien
In her book “Boarding School Syndrome”: The Psychological Trauma of the ‘Privileged Child'” Joy Schaverien identified a cluster of symptoms and behaviours, which she classified as “Boarding School Syndrome”. She has documented what she calls the ‘anatomy’, the ABC-D of this trauma. In this talk she will address the trauma with the focus on the particular issues faced by girls growing up within an often unsympathetic and male identified institution. It is hoped that we will have some lively discussion about these issues.
Professor Joy Schaverien PhD is a Jungian psychoanalyst, a Training Analyst of the Society of Analystical Psychology.
She has published extensively on Boarding School Syndrome including in two of her books: The Dying Patient in Psychotherapy (2020) and her best seller Boarding School Syndrome: The Psychological Trauma of the ‘Privileged Child (2015)
