Wed 30 April: BRUCE TATE presents 'It's All Fiction'

Alfred Adler was keen on fiction. He spoke about his interest in reading fairy tales, Goethe and Shakespeare amongst others. In his clinical work he would sometimes refer to some of Aesop’s Fables. Fiction is a key concept within different areas of Adler’s Individual Psychology. Use is made of elements of fiction by therapists in helping clients understand their lifestyle and in some creative therapeutic approaches. This talk and discussion will explore some of the ideas linked to fiction and how we can make use of them within our own lives.

Bruce Tate started training as a counsellor after more than 10 years’ experience of working in personnel. He has experience in secondary care and currently works as a counsellor in primary care (GP surgery) NHS and in independent practice. Bruce is an experienced trainer, and currently co-tutor on the Adlerian Certificate Course. He plays an active role in the Cambridge Adlerian Society, has served on ASIIP Council and is currently a member of the ASIIP Training Committee. He is a keen attender of ICASSI (the Adlerian international summer school) where he will be giving a workshop in Canterbury later this year.
