Course description

‘Novel connections’- Exploring literature and psychotherapy with Martin Weegmann - Online Workshop

Why do this course?

The world of literature- including novels, poetry and other written forms- can provide great insights into the work of the counsellor and psychotherapist. Freud himself acknowledged that, as for his insights, the poets had always ‘been there’ before him.

In this workshop, we will draw upon literary resources and thus widening the reference base of psychotherapy.
