Abstract

The veracity of this year’s conference theme – that resonances from childhood experiences permeate our adult life – cannot be denied. Far from it. Nonetheless, I do believe that searching for explanations of human psychological functioning primarily in the history of the individual adopts an unduly restrictive perspective on time. By loosening the collar of chronology and playing with the tension between time and agelessness I believe we liberate our thinking in ways that can impact creatively and positively on work with clients.
