Carine Minne and Lydia Chambers on Leslie SohnBook tickets
Melanie Klein Trust
Carine Minne will introduce some of the key contributions made by the psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Leslie Sohn, particularly in working with patients who have been extremely violent. Sohn assessed, treated and supervised hundreds of patients in his 62-year career in the British National Health Service and he revolutionised the thinking around violent behaviour in mentally disordered offenders and in particular, the apparently inexplicable and often bizarre violent acts carried out by mentally ill patients. Lydia Chambers will present current clinical vignettes from her work to illustrate the continuing relevance of his ideas.
