To register:

Join us for what promises to be a lively and illuminating conversation with Margaret and Michael Rustin, who will be discussing their book Reading Klein (Routledge, 2017) with psychoanalysts Anne Amos and Daniel Pick.

The discussion will explore themes from the book including Klein’s remarkable capacity to understand her patients’ unconscious anxieties and the continuing significance of her theoretical and clinical contributions to psychoanalysis. It will also examine the broader reach of Klein’s ideas, for example how they have contributed to notions of morality, aesthetics and the understanding of society.
