This workshop with Cate Lyon will take travellers on a whistle stop introductory tour of the didifficult terrain of the unconscious. Starting with a map of the mind, we shall visit some unconscious processes such as repression, projection, transference & countertransference and stop off at some key defensive mechanisms. We will unravel some jargon and discuss how these processes might manifest themselves in our everyday lives. We shall consider some clinical and non-clinical examples of such phenomena at work along our way. Travellers should disembark with a good basic grasp of some key unconscious processes and some confidence and appetite for further exploration.
