The Melanie Klein Trust

23 January 2021

Time: 16:00 - 17:30

Price: £20 (With some free places available)

Location: online


Join us for a conversation with Heinz Weiss and John Steiner exploring Weiss’s latest book, Trauma, Guilt and Reparation: The Path from Impasse to Development* (Routledge, 2020), with a chance to put your own questions to the author.

In the book, Weiss describes the challenge of working with severely traumatised patients, and examines the central Kleinian concept of reparation in relation to guilt, envy, time and a sense of reality. The conversation will explore Weiss’s thinking about the emotional barriers faced by people who have experienced severe trauma, as well as the emergence of reparative processes which pave the way from impasse to development.

The event will be chaired by psychoanalyst Anne Amos and includes an audience Q&A.

All attendees will receive a link to a recording of the event shortly afterwards, valid for one month, and a 20% discount code for the book.

* First published in German, Trauma, Schuldgefühl und Wiedergutmachung: Wie Affekte innere Entwicklung ermöglichen (Klett-Cotta, 2018)
