Workshop Leader:             Digby Tantam

Digby Tantam presents his ground-breaking theory of the Interbrain – the idea that human beings are endlessly connected by a continuous interplay of non-verbal communication of which we are unaware. Through a series of mini lectures, case studies and live supervision Tantam will demonstrate how the Interbrain has huge significance for therapeutic practice. Tantam explores the research that shows how our brains are linked and draws out the implications of the Interbrain in the room.
