In this fascinating event, Craig will talk about the Jewish roots of psychology and psychotherapy, the recent impact of Anti-Semitism and some thoughts about the future for Psychology.  Craig will also be asking if counselling/psychotherapy is simply replacing chatting cautiously and respectively with people. He will also be asking if counsellors should simply shut up and listen and may look at broader issues of power in counselling.  It is guaranteed to be thought provoking.

Who is it for: Anyone with an interest in psychology, psychotherapy, Anti-Semitism and Judaism.
