To understand how and why we get caught up in unhelpful dynamics with our work we need to consider the role of the unconscious.

Dr Libby Nugent is a clinical psychologist who uses a psychoanalytic approach to understand our complicated relationship with work. She draws on Jungian theory, group analysis, myths and fairy tales to explore the painful complexities that face us as healthcare professionals - and how to respond to these through creativity, community, care and choice.
