Things Fall Apart:  identity, insecurity and fracturing societies
With much of society at odds with each other and many disillusioned with mainstream political discourse, Britain is at a crossroads. There is a growing tendency towards oppositional states of mind leading to the fracturing of relationships, alliances and groups. PPNow 2019 brings together leading psychoanalysts, academics and journalists to explore this tendency towards polarisation and splitting within society as well as within our own psychotherapeutic community; examining why the tension between the need for the recognition of difference and autonomy and for affiliation and association feel so in conflict.

Speakers confirmed include:
Irish journalist and political commentator Fintan O’Toole  
 Guardian columnist and author, Gary Younge
BPC Chair, Susanna Abse
BPC Chief Executive, Gary Fereday
Jungian Analyst, former Chair of the BPC, Helen Morgan
