Phenomenology and the Arts, SEA – 2 November 2019

The Society for Existential Analysis (SEA) is running an interdisciplinary CPD event on Phenomenological Psychology and the Arts in collaboration with the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) at King's College London, Strand campus.

Phenomenology has a long tradition of contributing some of the most illuminating, multidimensional and practical accounts of art and the creative process. The British Psychological Society considers the existential-phenomenological paradigm as a meta-model and relational framework of critical importance to contemporary psychology and to the scientist-practitioner model. This CPD event will consider how a phenomenological emphasis on lived experience may strengthen ethical practice and challenge stigma and the pathologisation of artists. It will address how phenomenology can illuminate new and fruitful ways of thinking about and working with some of the issues that BAPAM strives to ameliorate.
