8 February, 6.15 to 7pm, online

Finding a Way to the Child: Selected Clinical Papers 1983-2021 by Margaret Rustin, edited by Simon Cregeen and Kate Stratton, is a record of the clinical thinking of Margaret Rustin across her 50 years of work as a child psychotherapist at the Tavistock. It includes some of her well-known papers and some not previously published, and ranges from individual case studies to the challenges of assessment, and work with parents. Margaret’s special interest in children with a troubled early history stands out, as does her conviction of the crucial relevance of psychoanalytic therapy for such children and adolescents.

We will hear from Michael Holland, Tavistock and Portman CEO, Ricky Emanuel, child psychotherapist and psychoanalytic psychotherapist, as well as from Margaret herself. The event will be chaired by Katie Argent, Head of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy at the Trust.
