Friday 26th May, Midlands Arts Centre, Birmingham
We are excited that the 2023 Medical Psychotherapy Trainees and Trainers Conference is fast approaching. It promises to be an interesting and inspiring day featuring a rich diversity of renowned speakers. Programme highlights include Dr Susie Orbach, the world acclaimed psychotherapist and author, in conversation about her work and her writing; Prof Adrian Sutton, Director of the Squiggle Foundation, speaking about the importance of play in his work with children and adolescents; Dr Haroula Konstantinidou on relational prescribing and Dr Simon Heyland on the use of language in working with medically unexplained symptoms.
This year for the first time we are hosting a collaborative conference, organised jointly by medical psychotherapy trainees and PsychArt, a trainee-led organisation celebrating the arts in psychiatry. We are pleased to be able to welcome professionals working in or interested in the disciplines of Psychotherapy, Psychiatry and the Arts as well as offering a great discounted rate for students.
We are pleased to invite submissions for an art competition where we encourage you to express what being alive means for you. All artistic media are welcome.
