First Thursday Seminar Series

The ‘First Thursday’ seminar series engages with innovative, creative and radical conversations about counselling and psychotherapy research and practice.

Creative-Relational Community Radio

Community Radio is where we can get to know one another, hear about and share our creative-relational works in progress, our arising curiosities, deepest obsessions, confused entanglements and flights of fancy through engaged conversation and experimental interventions. Find out more and register.

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:

Writing in process event: Returning Here After Being There

We will present writing in progress/process around themes of writing, loss, absence and presence. We explore the experience of coming back into contact after a space of absence: returning here after being there. We write through themes of loss, restoration, death, love, breakage, recovery, depletion, renewal, and more.
