Holding in mind that hysteria was considered a female mental disorder for over 4000 years and has been inextricably linked with the origins of psychoanalysis, this unique seminar series asks how far we have come in our understanding of the female psyche and the treatment of women in psychotherapy. Female distress was once cured with herbs, sex or sexual abstinence, punished and purified with fire for its association with sorcery. Thankfully, we have come a long way from such confusion about the emotional life of women, but where are we now with psychotherapeutic intervention for those suffering, not from hysteria but anxiety, depression, racism, anger, disempowerment or identity confusion? Do women come to psychotherapy with specific issues? And if so, what do these issues throw up in terms of a continual re-evaluation of the ‘female psyche’ – if, indeed, such a thing exists.”
