Live Events in May

To all members of the Community Site


To all friends and members of the Psychodynamic Thinking Community

You don’t need to be a member of APPCIOS to join our Community and sign up for our live group meetings!  They are all held via Zoom, and they are all free.
These are anxious and difficult times.  We all need to support one another’s thinking.  
New groups and events:

  • Transference and Projective Identification
On Saturday 16th May Susan Maciver will hold an introductory day on Transference and Projective Identification.  This will include short presentations and experiential work.
If you’re interested in attending just send her an email here.
  •  Understanding Race from a Psychodynamic Perspective.
One consequence of the coronavirus pandemic has been to highlight differences and inequities within our society.  

If you would like to participate in exploring the particular experience of BAME members, please email us here.
Ongoing groups that you’re welcome to join:
  • Weekend Psychosymposium
We hold a Psychodynamic Symposium every weekend where members of this Site can meet for live discussions around papers, articles, books, films and poems.  Or just to talk. This is an open group, and you won’t need to commit to regular attendance.  We alternate meetings between Saturdays and Sundays.

Go here to find out more, add your name, and join our next meeting on Sunday May 3rd at 4.00pm.  
  • Focus on Zoom 
This group meets on Thursdays at 5.30pm to explore the transition to screen communication and its impact, both socially and professionally. 

If you would like to join, send us an email here.

And as ever . . .
