CAT, Consciousness and a Relational Self - offered by Sussex Partnership NHS FTNHS
14th May 2021

CAT, Consciousness and a Relational Self

How does CAT view the idea of consciousness? What makes up a person’s ‘self’. Jason will look at recent neurobiological, genetic, epigenetic, collective and dialogic influences on the self that show that the human self is far from a ‘tabula rasa’ at birth and will consider possible mechanisms for the transmission of trauma trans-generationally. He will present a relational model of the self. In the afternoon there will be the opportunity to explore complex case work using these ideas and the exercise ‘the microcosm’ that considers how reciprocal role re-enactments occur down the generations and through systems.

Guest Speaker: Jason Hepple
