Confirmed speakers include:
Jeremy Holmes, Evrinomy Avdi, Iona Heath, Jacki Hobson, Graham Music, Tobias Nolte, Nic Sarra, Arietta Slade, Mary Target.
A key feature of psychoanalysis and attachment theory is their exposition and valuation of the marginal and the repressed — ‘hidden in plain sight’. In this unique conference we celebrate Jeremy Holmes’ commitment to ‘peripheries of excellence’, science-based non-partisan eclecticism and how they have informed the Exeter University’s programme of psychoanalytic studies, and his own work combining contemporary attachment theory with current psychodynamic practice.
The conference speakers – representing psychiatry, clinical psychology, psychoanalytic research, group analysis, couple therapy and cultural studies — cover topics ranging from attachment theory, child development, contemporary neuroscience, couple therapy, institutional health and failure, and literature. Friends and colleagues of Jeremy, distinguished writers and practitioners all, they will explore their own cutting-edge preoccupations, and how they relate to the overall theme of peripheral visions.
