Information on upcoming events organised by the Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry (CCRI).

Psychosocial Study Group in Scotland

The study group is based at the CCRI at the University of Edinburgh and housed with the Association for Psychosocial Studies (APS), see more info here 

For those who would like to know more about 'psychosocial' inquiry, please see a possible way of formulation on the APS website. 

In brief, psychosocial inquiry seeks to connect the intrapsychic processes with the interpersonal relations and, in the past, these have drawn a lot of theoretical energy on psychoanalytic thinking and sociological / cultural / critical theories. 

If you are interested in becoming a member, please do get in touch by emailing the convener of the Group - Nini Fang at:
