Come and explore how…

• our bodies are shaped by social, political, ecological and economic forces
• we shape our bodies through our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, patterns, actions, allegiances
• our bodies offer connections with the earth and other-than-human and more-than-human life
• we struggle to reclaim our bodies as our own, within the complex networks of power which we inhabit

. . .and what’s all this got to do with being a therapist/client?

The conference will include: keynotes from Relational Body Psychotherapists Shoshi Asheri and Nick Totton, a diverse programme of workshops, the chance to meet other interested
practitioners and to find out more and/or join PCSR—Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility (
