Professional Seminars for Therapists and Health Professionals
The Relational Challenges of Love & Sexuality in the Consulting Room - Paul Renn
Paul Renn
Date: Saturday 12th May 2018, 10am – 1pm
Venue: St George’s Hall, 206 Andover Road, Newbury RG14 6NU

This seminar will explore the sexual and idealised attraction between therapist and client from a relationship standpoint. Paul Renn will draw on developmental theory as well as drawing on clinical “moments” & case discussion to explore the relational and ethical challenges of love and sexuality in the consulting room.

Paul will give a talk in three sections:

1. Modern developmental theory regarding sexuality

  • demystification of psychoanalytic thinking
  • relational and attachment perspectives
  • regulation of affect integrating love and desire, attachment and sexuality

2. Love and Sexuality in the Consulting Room

  • different forms of love within the therapeutic relationship
  • difficulties of enactments
  • the contentious issue of therapist self-disclosure
  • factors that may cause boundary-crossing

3. Moments of Meeting – A clinical vignette

  • the importance of playfulness whilst maintaining boundaries
  • selective self-disclosure to create meaningful and authentic emotional connections with clients, which can feel risky

There will be plenty of time for questions, answers and discussion.

Paul Renn is a UKCP accredited relational psychoanalytic psychotherapist and author in private practice in London. He is a training therapist and supervisor and latterly trained at The Centre for Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, now renamed The Bowlby centre. He is the author of a number of book chapters and journal articles published in the UK, and the author of The Silent past and the Invisible Present.
