Event description
SILENCE AND POTENTIAL SPACE IN WORK OF PSYCHOTHERAPY - Professor John O'Connor

About this Event

This talk explores the idea of silence as a potential space in the work of psychotherapy. It considers how change takes place in a non-verbal sphere, though carried and aided often too by verbal engagement. The therapist partly represents silence as a kind of receptive state. Into the space offered by silence enters important, often silenced, material. Such silence allows spontaneity and surprise; and ultimately the finding of different experiences.
