We continue our series of online webinars which, we hope, will enhance the collaboration between those who work in the consulting room and those who apply psychoanalytical ideas to a broader canvas.

This session will consider Melancholia in Contemporary Institutions, with talks from Dr Susan Kahn and Andrew Cooper.

Please note this event is limited to the BPC Scholars’ Network and Registrants only. The joining details will be displayed on screen once you have registered.

Dr Susan Kahn CPsychol is a coaching psychologist, fellow of the Association of Business Psychologists and a mediator.  She is Programme Director for Coaching Psychology at Birkbeck, University of London and works as an executive coach and facilitator.

She has a particular interest in below the surface dynamics. Her research interests embrace leadership, change and vulnerability at work. She has authored two books, Death & the City, which uses psychoanalysis to explore organisational endings and Bounce Back: how to fail fast and be resilient at work. 


Andrew Cooper is an adult and family psychotherapist and Professor of Social Work at the Tavistock Centre and University of East London. His research and writing encompasses many themes relevant to a psycho-social and psychoanalytic understanding of organisational life, particularly in the UK public sector.
