The Association for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in Ireland (APPI) are delighted to invite you to the seminar ‘The Clinic of Excess‘.

Place: Hilton Hotel, Charlemont Place, Dublin 2

Price: €16.87 – €48.90

This half day seminar comprises a key note address by Dominico Cosenza followed by a panel discussion of clinical cases. The seminar will examine the issue of ‘excess’ in its various manifestations – including that of food, alcohol, drugs for example. It will reflect on our consumer society where the demand is to buy, buy, buy and consume, consume, consume – all with the promise of a utopian level of enjoyment.

This day will be attended by the Board and Management Committee.  It is felt that there are many crucial issues to be discussed going forward in our current climate and ICP is committed to working for you, the Registrants.
