SOLD OUT: Ethnic Purity, Otherness and Anxiety: The Model of Internal Racism

10 October 2020 @ 10:30 AM 12:30 PM

SOLD OUT – Book your place now >>

Rising numbers of refugees from the Middle East and Africa and the growing threat of extremist violence have fueled the rise of racist sentiment, epitomised by right wing political groupings, across Europe.

This lecture suggests that their grip on the mind stems from a universal, internal racist structure in the mind, which it describes in detail. A consequence of the deployment of this system is a paralysis of functioning in the consulting room, and it is argued that working on this, as part of the analyst’s on-going self analysis, presents a way forward for analysts.

  • Tickets £10 – £35
  • When: Saturday 10th October 2020
