Tuesday the 20th of March: The psychology of political failure lecture with Bob Haris

Why is it that, after thousands of years of philosophy, religion, economics, we still experience global gross poverty, massive inequality and endless wars. Why are people sleeping in shop doorways in the world’s wealthiest countries? Why is suicide the leading cause of death amongst young men in the UK? And why do we still continue with the same political behaviours, hoping that things will turn out different this time around?

Bob Harris will discuss these and other aspects of political failure. He is a group analyst, currently working in the UK, Russia, Albania, and Kalmykia, and recently led a year long Foundation Course in Group Analysis in Kazakhstan. He has a special interest in severe and enduring psychopathology, large groups, is a political activist and an ardent sailor.

Book and pay via our Meetup site for £6 or pay on the door on the evening £8.
