The Right Brain, Left Brain Divide:
What is its relevance to the task of psychotherapy?
A seminar led by Professor Iain McGilchrist


Saturday 22 March 2014 - Edinburgh


In a work of unparalleled depth, Professor Iain McGilchrist has examined a vast body of recent brain research to reveal that the differences between the right and left hemisphere of the brain are complex, specific and profound. This division is offered by the speaker as a way of illustrating some of the core tensions in human behaviour, which if not elucidated, leave us at risk of misjudging the nature of our relationships with others and to the world in which we live.

This seminar will be of especial interest to psychotherapists who wish to find integration between the parallel disciplines of neuropsychology and psychotherapy, and those who are seeking deeper knowledge about our psychological structures. How such neuroscientific awareness may be used to positively influence the practice of mental health work will be addressed and discussed.
