Bombs in the Consulting Room: Surviving Psychological Shrapnel
Saturday 7 December 2019 - Dublin
A Special One-day Event with Brett Kahr and Dr. Carine Minne
Although the vast majority of psychotherapy patients conduct themselves with great honorability and pose no physical or emotional threat to the clinician, a small number of individuals will, from time to time, hurl “bombs” into the consulting room.

In this special one-day event, Professor Brett Kahr and Dr. Carine Minne, will present material from their work in both independent and forensic settings, examining the ways in which practitioners can better diagnosis potential clinical “bombs” in advance and, also, exploring how one might better defuse the bombs which patients hurl, inevitably, on certain occasions. The two speakers will not only present some very riveting and, often, shocking details from their own practices but will also provide “live” supervision so that conference participants will have an opportunity to benefit from Kahr’s and Minne’s many decades of professional experience. This conference follows on from the publication of Brett Kahr’s latest book, Bombs in the Consulting Room: Surviving Psychological Shrapnel and with the launch of The International Journal of Forensic Psychotherapy for which Carine Minne serves as Editor-in-Chief.
