Film through the lens of psychology: let's get this conversation started in Harlow!
"Lively, fresh, thought-provoking discussion learning and exploring ideas in a relaxed atmosphere"
Lets Get this Conversation started is a series of discussions brought to you by MW Conversations Psychology Service: we intend to bring to life useful psychological ideas through understanding and exploring films together.
We are talking about 'I, Tonya' on Monday 12th November evening in the amazing Harlow Museum. We are discussing it through the lens of a couple of psychology theories: mentalisation and compassion-focused therapy, both of which Greg will be explaining, no prior knowledge needed.
We recommend watching the film - 'I, Tonya' - beforehand as we only play brief clips, so that our time is focused on the conversation. It costs just £2.70 to join us. We intend to make high-quality psychology more accessible, and ask you to buy your ticket ahead of the event for just a cost of a cappuccino. Free parking outside.
These two hour talks are hosted by Greg Mackenzie, an NHS psychotherapist with 15 years of experience. They are for anyone interested in deepening their appreciation of movies, interested in psychology and interested in exploring why people do what they do interpersonally.
Why do we act in ways which just do not seem to make sense, and have the potential to sabotage what we most want? Why do we rupture relationships? How can we repair them? How do people move forward from challenging times? These are among the questions we've explored so far. Story telling has such a rich history of communicating wisdoms, we are excited to share these with you in conversations about some excellent films.
More events to be announced shortly; 'follow' us on Facebook: 'MW Conversations', or feel free to drop us an email to stay updated on firstname.lastname@example.org. We find it helpful for people to have watched the film first, so that we can focus on conversation (although we will show a few clips to anchor our discussions). We look forward to hopefully welcoming you soon!
We also offer well-being and mindful eating courses, private individual therapy, private couples therapy and professional supervision; contact us directly on email@example.com or 07817 219628, or look us up on mwconversations.co.uk.
Thank you to Harlow Museum & Walled Gardens for supporting us and hosting us so wonderfully,
