Teaching and academic work
Jeremy was course director of the family therapy training at the University of Bristol. Simultaneously he taught about psychoanalytic work with families at the Bridge Foundation, Bristol; at the same time I also taught refugee studies at the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling; and lectured on the introductory course in psychoanalytic studies at the Severnside Institute for Psychotherapy; and from time to time he taught and trained at Relate.
In the past he also taught at the Institute of Family Therapy, London; at Birkbeck College, University of London; on the Play Therapy course at the University of Surrey, Roehampton; on the counselling psychology training at City University, London; on the specialist training in systemic supervision at the University of Exeter.
In addition to this mainstream teaching in the psychotherapies he has taught and lectured in Britain and abroad about psychological trauma, and human responses to extreme events.
As a Zen teacher he also has an abiding interest in how contemplative practice and psychotherapies flow together.
Jeremy's special academic interests are
- To bring psychoanalytic thinking into work with families, using attachment and metacognition as a bridge between psychoanalytic and systemic paradigms
- To understand trauma and its effects on the inner world of individuals and on family relationships
- To profoundly understand how we can work interculturally in the psychotherapies
- To understand how contemplative practice can be integrated into the psychotherapies.
