Whenever we open a new book or read the first lines of a paper, we enter a new living space. Invited by the author, we move FORWARD to satisfy our curiosity and thirst for meaning. Texts house ideas, some of them are familiar, others foreign. When you finish reading them, you wish you knew the author and could call them up, to introduce you to all the corners of the house. Where the reader is the visitor, the author is the host. And, from this gathering, a new book emerges.

Moving FORWARD together we read psychoanalytic books and papers, invite the authors and organize public on-line conversations. Sebastian Thrul guides the conversation but the word is also yours.

This time the guest is Brett Kahr, who is Senior Fellow at the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology in London, and, also, Visiting Professor of Psychoanalysis and Mental Health in the Regent’s School of Psychotherapy and Psychology at Regent’s University London. A long-serving Trustee of both Freud Museum London and of Freud Museum Publications, he also holds posts as Senior Clinical Research Fellow in Psychotherapy and Mental Health at the Center for Child Mental Health, as Consultant in Psychology to The Bowlby Center, and as Consultant Psychotherapist at The Balint Consultancy.

The conversation will focus on the challenge of flourishing as psychotherapist in today’s world.

So, in the words of explorer David Livingston, let’s go anywhere, provided it be FORWARD.
