Susie Orbach LIVE Legacy Interview:
Pioneering Feminist Psychoanalyst and Psychotherapist
Groundbreaking in her examination of the roots of body image, gender and sexuality.

Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to celebrate the trailblazing work of Susie Orbach, one of the most admired and respected psychotherapists and psychoanalysts alive today.

She will be discussing the psychological and emotional factors, along with social pressures, that contribute to eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia in women and how to treat them both inside the therapy room and outside in wider society.
We hope you can join us for a unique opportunity to learn from a true pioneer in the field about:

– Susie’s personal journey and the formative experiences that led her to pursue a career in psychotherapy
– Her groundbreaking therapeutic concepts on working with women, relationships and addressing Eating Disorders
– ‘Fat is a Feminist Issue’ (1978), the seminal work that ignited a crucial dialogue about troubled bodies and troubled eating
– The Women’s Therapy Centre in London and The WTCI in New York, pioneering institutions dedicated to addressing the unique needs of women in therapy
– The intricacies and power of the therapeutic relationship to heal its potential to bring about change both inside and outside the treatment room.
– Why change is difficult. Moreover, why don’t people change when conditions are terrible?
– We’ll be talking with her about what has driven her courageous approach to integrating public issues into psychotherapy.

Don’t miss this exceptional chance to celebrate and learn from a trailblazer who has demystified the therapy room and revolutionised our understanding of the complex relationships between bodies, minds, and society.
