Breaks In Therapy Working with planned and unplanned breaks in clinical work | 1st July 2023

Confer Logo for EventSaturday 1st July

13.30 – 18.30

A live webinar or In Person event with Charles Brown, Linda Cundy, and Prof Joy Schaverien

This conference will explore the roles and meanings of planned and unplanned breaks in therapy, how they may be experienced by client and therapist, and their impact on the therapeutic process.

From traditional five-times weekly psychoanalysis through to the more common weekly sessions, fortnightly or ad hoc appointments, the time between therapeutic contact creates structure, rhythm and space.

Pauses are an inevitable feature of therapeutic work, but it is important to reflect on how they are experienced by the client, many of whom may feel rejected or abandoned due to their relational history. A change of rhythm to the therapy can give us access to the client’s internal worlds and attachment patterns.
