Msc in Evolutionary Psychology

October 30th 2015. I co-presented a workshop with Terry Birchmore at the BPS Psychotherapy Section Conference. The workshop presented two perspectives on mentalisation (client’s abilities to think about how their own and other’s minds work), one psychoanalytic, one evolutionary. The conference was on the theme of ‘Transtheoretical issues in Psychotherapy’ and included presentations by speakers on: Community responses to austerity and disadvantage, working with self-esteem, Psychological treatment of problematic internet usage. At the AGM that was part of the conference I was elected chair of the psychotherapy Section.
