RECENT NOVEMBER WEBINARS

Tuesday 3rd November 

Dr Valerie Sinason will be discussing her new book, The Truth about Trauma and Dissociation. Everything you didn’t want to know and were afraid to ask. (2020). Confer Books, with David O’Driscoll (IPD Chair).

Dr Susie Orbach has said of the book, “In plain language, she enables us to see forms of cruelty and the psychic consequences which lead to the extreme splitting of psyches into dissociated and multiple self-states.”

I will be discussing this important new book with IPD’s most senior clinician.

I think it is a fitting way to end this years successful set of webinars.
