IPD Webinar 24th November

The webinars will be for an hour and there will be time for questions. Also, can I ASK, as we are a small organisation, we would appreciate a donation – which you can do via the website.

Please be aware we recording our webinars and also looking at revamping our website, once it is revamped, we are hoping to publish the recordings on the website.


Due to popular demand, and the fact we are back in lockdown again, we have decided to have a few more webinars before the end of the year.

We also have a number of confirmed webinars for next year including;

  • Roger Curen (Psychotherapist, ex-director Respond) on forensic work with People with learning disabilities
  • Dr Noelle Blackman (Director, Respond), on families and people with a learning disability
  • Florian Schwanninger (historian, director Hartheim centre) on the T4 programme

These will be confirmed nearer the time

Please see below links to the confirmed upcoming webinars and also a special offer for Simon Jarrett’s book.

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.
