Are you interested in:

  • Discussing the links between where you are from and where you live now?
  • Sharing your stories of identity, culture and nationality? 
  • Developing your creative and therapeutic writing skills?

Join us learning about our social identities and nationalities by writing and sharing letters to the places where we grew up and where we live now; at a time when nationality has taken centre stage in the UK. 

Homeland is an open invitation: a place of metaphor, a place in your heart; a place of memories and history.   We use the idea of a written reformulation developed from Cognitive Analytic Therapy.   The workshop is open to anyone with a personal or professional interest.  

Workshop staff: Steve Potter and Jamie Kirkland (Steve Potter is a Cognitive Analytic Therapist (CAT), Chair of ICATA and teaches and supervises a wide variety of groups both internationally and in the UK.   Jamie Kirkland is a clinical psychologist and CAT practitioner and works in Edinburgh)
