Psychoanalytic and Systemic Therapists have for many years worked closely as clinicians and researchers at the Tavistock Clinic, yet debate between their different theoretical perspectives, for example at Scientific Meetings, is less frequent. Shakespeare's plays, containing, like Cleopatra herself, "an infinite variety" offer fertile ground for such debates. At this meeting we propose to bring together, in dialogue, contrasting psychoanalytic and systemic approaches to the play. In what way, Margaret and Michael Rustin will ask, does a psychoanalytic perspective offer any distinctive insight into the meaning of the play? Gwyn Daniel will interrogate how a systemic approach can provide connections between the play's multiple levels. All three of the speakers believe it is beneficial for similarities and differences between approaches so central to the Trust's work to be more actively and creatively explored.
