CAP/TWCYP Intensive Study Event (ISE)* - Reflecting on gender in psychotherapeutic work with children


Wednesday 10 May, 13:30 to 16:00


HDS Training Suite, 142 West Nile Street, Glasgow G1 2RQ


Ann Horne


This presentation focuses on thinking about children who are referred to CAMHS and other services when issues of gender are seen as fundamental. The importance of following the individuality and uniqueness of each’s child’s anxiety and experience is stressed. The particular imperative to act, to do something, felt by all - patient, family, clinic and network - is explored and underlying psyche-soma issues reflected on together. The importance of having support is emphasised as is the need for a network that can contain splits and sustain compassion and a sense of reality. The whole is viewed within a changing psychoanalytic discourse on gender and an exploration of what psychoanalytic theory offers the therapist today.

About the presenter - Ann Horne

Ann is a Fellow of the BPF and an Honorary Member of ČSPAP, the Czech Society for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.  Following careers as a teacher of English (Falkirk High), college lecturer in Social Policy (Moray House, Edinburgh) and Psychiatric Social Worker (Camberwell Child Guidance Unit – now CAMHS), she finally trained as a child and adolescent psychotherapist at the BAP (now IPCAPA the BPF) – late developer some might say - where she was head of training and later of post-graduate development. 

A previous joint editor of the Journal of Child Psychotherapy, she is co-editor with Monica Lanyado of The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy: Psychoanalytic Approaches (1st edition 1999; 2nd edition 2009) and of the Independent Psychoanalytic Approaches with Children and Adolescents series which she developed for Routledge. The eighth volume in this series, Supervision in a Changing World: reflections from child psychotherapy edited by Deirdre Dowling and Julie Kitchener, will appear this summer!  

Retired from NHS and clinical work, latterly at the Portman Clinic in London, she retains a particular interest in children who use the body and activity rather than be able to access thought and reflection.  And she likes returning home to Scotland...
