Season 3 Finale: Mentalization and not going mental

Thank you to Ann Perry who led the penultimate forum of the season with an insightful and riveting case study. It was a reminder of the resilience of our clients, and of the therapy.

We are drawing to the end of another successful season of forums and as is tradition the final forum on the 14th June 2014 will be free (to those bring food/drink to share). Please book in advance as it is always popular. Can we also ask that if you are unlikely to make it please don’t reserve a seat until you can be sure, as we hate to turn people away.
