Two Way: Learning from each other

A webinar series

The Sydney Institute for Psychoanalysis invites you to join us as we bring together First Nations’ thinkers with psychoanalysts and psychotherapists in a series of six webinars in the spirit of Two Way – working together and learning from each other.
