Seminar by Dr. Robert Langs

Friday 25th April


the ESCP Conference

Saturday 26th April and Sunday 27th April

 Dr. Langs will be leading a small 'self-processing' seminar group on " Dreams and Reaching into Your Own Unconscious Wisdom" on 

Friday, April 25th in the afternoon, to be given at Regent's College, London, England. 

The group will be limited to six participants. The seminar will include processing dreams and narratives, identifying triggers and themes, and linking them so as to generate a new level of deep, useful, and meaningful insight. Comments will be offered on the evolution and design of the emotion-processing mind, and on using self-processing personally and in one's work, be it doing psychotherapy or otherwise.

This will be followed on the Saturday and Sunday by the ESCP Conference and AGM."New Directions: Challenge and Change".with the keynote speech "Love--True and False--in Psychotherapy" given by Dr. Robert Langs (the founder of the communicative approach and author of over 40 books.) Other international speakers will be presenting new and exciting work using Communicative principles.· 

On Sunday morning from 10.00am to 12.30 pm there will be an extended master class given by Robert Langs
on "Dreams and Uncommon Wisdom and Morality."
