WORKSHOP FEATURE VIDEO PRESENTATION
"Approaches" Video demonstration featuring R.D. Laing & Harold F. Searles, followed by a discussion with Fritjof Capra, PhD, William Stranger and Michael Guy Thompson, PhD
In 1975 Peter Robinson, the documentary filmmaker who directed the 1971 documentary, Asylum, invited Laing and Harold Searles to participate in an unprecedented clinical demonstration of their respective "approaches" to working with patients suffering from psychotic process. In this little-known and near-extinct one-hour demonstration of their clinical styles, Searles and Laing take turns interviewing the same patient who also shares her experience with them. Robinson chose Laing and Searles because they were at that time regarded the two most famous – and controversial – psychoanalysts who advocated psychotherapy as the optimal treatment for schizophrenia. The result is a riveting as well as astonishing demonstration of two clinical masters at their best and most innovative. The screening will be followed by a discussion with audience participation.
