The unconscious curriculum at researchEd 2016.

Standard

Some reflections on how the unconscious works its way into our classrooms, staffrooms and school processes.

This session will follow the tradition of Melanie Klein, Anna Freud and Wilfred Bion and attempt to explore some of the ways in which unconscious forces may influence teaching and learning.  The role of the teacher is often defined by powerful unconscious phantasies which are prone to projections and transference. An understanding of anxieties and defence mechanisms may help us make sense of the emotional landscape of learning. We can consider both the conscious and unconscious components of relationships as well as the connecting emotions and behaviours which may link to earlier experiences and states of mind.
