The space of Home: intrapsychic, interpersonal and socio-political dimensions

The sense of home and belonging to a home is one of the most fundamental realities of human beings. What are the complexities that constitute the multifaceted phenomenon and image of home? How do these complexities affect people who have lost their intimate space involuntarily? How can we assist such people when they experience the painful effects of such involuntary dislocation? These are some of the questions that this seminar will address, in a maximum possible interactional exchange with the participants.

Based on Professor Papadopoulos’s own extensive work in the field of involuntary dislocation, which includes not only research and training but also clinical work and activism, this seminar aims to address the complexities, dilemmas and traps that are engendered whenever we deal with any themes related to the image of home in the context of phenomena of involuntary dislocation.

Papadopoulos, Ph.D. is Professor of Analytical Psychology, Director of the ‘Centre for Trauma, Asylum and Refugees’, and member of the ‘Human Rights Centre’ and ‘Transitional Justice Network’, all at the University of Essex and with an honorary appointment at the Tavistock Clinic.
