False Self Presentation Seminar
Presented by David Davis

The False Presentation was first defined in psychotherapy literature by Winnicott; although the idea itself has permeated literature, art, philosophy, religion for centuries. This presentation examines the false self concept in the light of early parenting experiences and social and cultural expectations with particular focus on how this concept plays out in everyday life and in clinical practice. This also presentation offers some clinical solutions for dealing with a false self presentation and finishes with a critique of the false self concept, suggesting ways this concept could be understood differently.

David has extensive experience (over 20 years) in counselling and psychotherapy. David has worked with individuals, couples and families in a number of different organisations. He is currently working as a counsellor with the Early Parenting Counselling service. David also has a Masters of Social work in Couple and Family Therapy. In his final year of study David completed a thesis on the Therapeutic Use of Self, in which David has a particular clinical interest.
