University of Brighton @ Falmer – Saturday, 9 September 2017
A conference for psychotherapists, counsellors, mental health workers, boarding school survivors and other interested people.
Conference overall aims are to:
- Present key aspects of what has been published about the psychological and other effects of boarding.
- Explore helpful therapeutic approaches for clients who are former boarders.
- Consider current research and a possible agenda for future research
- Enable networking amongst those interested in this important topic
More details including speakers here in early 2017. (Please note: this event is being organised independently of Boarding Concern.)
In this month’s edition (Nov 2016) of Therapy Today, you can read an article by Prof Joy Schaverien.
Joy’s article (page 20) is the “takeaway” from her presentation at our Conference last month.
You can also read a review (page 40) of Trauma, Abandonment & Privilege by Nick Duffell and Thurstine Basset.
We welcomed 75 attendees to our 2016 Conference in London last Saturday. The fullest we have been. To date…
And this despite there being a separate Boarding School Survivors course for women in London. And another survivors event elsewhere in England.
Professor Joy Schaverien was our keynote speaker, addressing the topic of: The Creation of Boarding School Syndrome: Girls and Boys; How does the trauma differ? See this flyer for more details.
