Sheila Kitzinger

Birth, Self, and Society

Sheila Kitzinger

Inner Circle Seminar No. 72
introduced by
Anthony Stadlen

Sunday 30 November 2003
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Sheila Kitzinger has done more than anyone to help women recover their own responsibility for giving birth. Her first, groundbreaking book, The Experience of Childbirth (1962), challenged the idea that childbirth was so frightening that women should leave it to professionals. Her work is existential and phenomenological in all but name, a fine example for all psychotherapists. The seminar will be attended by a unique combination of psychotherapists together with mothers and their babies. It offers the opportunity for reappraisal of some of the dogmatic claims made by psychotherapists about mothers and babies.
