WPF Therapy Book of the Month – April 2019
If I chance to talk a little wild by Jane Haynes is a haunting and heartfelt memoir by a leading psychotherapist. This is the brutally honest, passionate and unorthodox sequel to her PEN Ackerley Prize shortlisted Who is it that can tell me who I am?. Building on Jane Haynes’s personal and clinical experience and with extensive references borne of her love of literature (she devotes a whole chapter, for example, to the impact of Proust on her psychoanalytic thought) and with constant mention of her first great mentor, the legendary R. D. Laing, If I chance to talk a little wild will haunt, educate, surprise yet always fascinate its readers long after the book has been read.
Furthermore we are pleased to be welcoming Jane to WPF Therapy on 12th October 2019 when she will be facilitating a workshop entitled I grow old…. I grow old…. I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled ‘Prufock’, TS Eliot, where some links to the material in her book will be made.
