WMIP are pleased to invite you to ‘Shame and Psychoanalysis: Better late than never! on Saturday 27th April in Birmingham city centre with speaker Simon Archer.

Simon Archer arrived in his psychoanalytic home via a bumpy but adventurous ride from art school. Along the route were: An artist’s studio in London’s docklands; plumbing, decorating and joinery to earn money; a teaching certificate, adult education tutoring, art school teaching; art therapy and finally, before psychoanalytic training, psychiatric social work as a group and individual therapist in a therapeutic community.

He trained with the British Association of Psychotherapists (Now part of the BPF). He moved to York in the 1980’s and worked in full-time private practice while training with the Institute of Psychoanalysis. He is a fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society and a founder member of the North of England Association for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (Newcastle). He is retired from clinical practice but continues to teach, supervise, and assist with various psychoanalytic trainings currently including the BTTP and previously WMIP. He has given talks about shame since the early 1980’s, He has written several published papers about shame.
