Meltzer Study Group

The Donald Meltzer Development Fund is dedicated to the promotion and teaching of Dr Meltzer’s ideas. In line with that the Northern School is pleased to host the third year of a study group in collaboration with The Donald Meltzer Development Fund to explore the writings of Donald Meltzer. The study group is designed as CPD for qualified child and adolescent and adult psychoanalytic psychotherapists interested in deepening their understanding of Kleinian and post-Kleinian psychoanalytic theories and their application to clinical practice.

This year the group will be exploring the work of Wilfred Bion and linking it with Part 3 of Meltzer’s “The Kleinian Development”, engaging
with Bion’s texts “Experiences in Groups”, “Second Thoughts”, “Learning from Experience”, “Elements of Psycho-Analysis”, “Attention and Interpretation” and “The Grid”, and will consider Meltzer’s interpretation of these works.
