Plenary Session Chair:
The Other as a Potential Enemy
The Face and Body of the Other
When an infant sees herself in the eyes of her loving mother, she knows that the “I” inside herself, is reflected in a “me” out there in the world. It is safe “to go on being”, as Winnicott would say. This is the real beginning of human consciousness and the start of an unfolding mystery of transcendent encounters with experience. Love, mythology, religion, art, poetry, and psychotherapy at its best, help to fully disclose this. The opposite is emptiness or hatred of self, a narcissistic absorption in the self, and fear and paranoia about the other.
Hotel Golf Mar***
Why stay here?
• Airport: Lisbon (LIS)
• The hotel is located in the north of Lisbon (1h drive).
• For transportation or any information about the climate or other useful details (time, currency, ID document, etc) ...
Besides the beaches of Santa Cruz and Porto Novo, with all activities typical of a holiday resort, there are also many other touristic spots to visit (natural water spas, historical monuments).
And beautiful Lisbon is not that far.
The Training Days Workshops were initially offered only to students who needed to make up for a missed workshop in their Training Program.
They are now open to all IIBA students.
Places are limited, but there are a few left, so we encourage you, students, to sign up soon for one or the other of these workshops if you are interested.
