Therapeutic Resources in a Time of Increased Vulnerability
We live in a time of increased vulnerability – the state of the world, the pandemic crisis, the economic crisis, enduring geopolitical tensions and cultural misunderstandings, the climate emergency, are the background to episodic natural or unnatural traumatic events from earthquakes to episodes of violence dislocating our sense of identity, selfhood, purpose.
How should we position ourselves as therapists in relation to vulnerability? What is the difference between structural human vulnerability and socially induced precariousness? What are the different approaches to trauma? In this training, psychoanalyst Fabrice Olivier Dubosc explores our attitudes and opportunities in unconventional settings in times of emergency, in situations that compel us to innovate, reconsider our therapeutic setting and assumptions.
