establishmentThe Establishment on the Couch
A psychological exploration of class wounding – in the consulting room & society


A 1 day conference led by Prophecy Coles, Nick Duffell, Steve Potter & Professor Joy Schaverien


Saturday 9 May 2015


Recent fears about the role of the establishment as an increasingly uncaring and un-empathic entity lead to question: what are the deep, psychological structures of those people who govern and control with so little apparent concern for those who have less – less money, opportunity, safety, education and cultural capital?

This day begins our enquiry into the psychological impact of deeply rooted inequalities in Britain, and the interpersonal behaviour of those who have experienced privilege and yet relational deprivation as children. We want to examine both the mind-set of entitlement on which this societal structure is founded, and its shadow of broken attachments, loss and abuse. How do we manage class issues in the consulting room?
