 1. Pelvic floor and Trauma

The pelvic floor plays a fundamental role in women's health, especially female bodies. It gives us so much information about the anxieties and distresses of our internal worlds and also, how we feel in our external environments. The health and nurturing of our pelvic floor is crucial not just in our sexual health, but also in our overall health and functioning. 

 

Pelvic floor dysfunction takes many forms and 60% of female bodies experience some form of pelvic floor distress. Pelvic floor muscles support the bladder, bowel and the uterus and prevent incontinence of bladder and bowel, prolapse and are also important in sexual function, yet we don't talk about them enough. The pelvic floor is impacted by hormonal changes, childbearing, menopause, surgery, changes in lifestyle, trauma and so much more. We also don't have enough information about the response of the pelvic floor to trauma - not just sexual trauma but also, its other forms. A traumatic childbirth, surgery etc. also can contribute to pelvic floor dysfunction. This is the gap I want to fill through this workshop.

2. The Psychoanalytic Reading Group (by Reva Puri)

 

Have you been looking for a place to make psychoanalysis understandable? To make complex psychoanalytic readings digestible? A place to feel less alone with difficult realizations and memories that erupt when you read texts about childhood, pain, suffering, and other overwhelming mental states? Welcome to our 6-month reading group where we will explore psychoanalysis, together!

What this reading group will cover:
 

  • Module 1 (July)- Introduction to Psychoanalysis: Thinking Analytically

 

  • Module 2 (August)- Our Raw Beginnings: Relational Needs in Infancy

 

  • Module 3 (September)- Intergenerational Trauma: Bearing with our Ghosts
     

  • Module 4 (October)- Psychic Trauma: Pain and ruptured of the self
     

  • Module 5 (November)- Rethinking Lows in a World of Highs: Undoing Manic Defense

Structure of The Group:
4th Wednesday of every month

Time: 8-9:30 pm IST

Fee: Rs 3000

Upper Limit: 15 members

CLIENTS AT THE PRACTICE CANNOT APPLY FOR THE READING GROUP.

Each module will include 2-3 readings which will be made available a month prior to the beginning of the group. Out of these 1 will be essential and the others will be recommended.

The group will rely on the richness of every member's associations to the readings, making space for feelings, memories, and thoughts. It will be focussed on understanding psychoanalysis through experiencing it, together.

Open to everyone interested in beginning psychoanalytic readings or exploring depth psychology.

This is especially useful for early career psychotherapists looking to include the psychoanalytic lens in their practice. This space can also be used as a way of getting in touch with yourself through reading.
