Saybrook to Sponsor R.D. Laing Symposium

To honor R.D. Laing’s rightful place in the history of psychology, scholars from around the world are gathering in New York in October 2013 to remember R. D. Laing on the 25th anniversary of his death. 

Saybrook is a proud sponsor of “R. D. Laing in the 21st Century: A Weekend Symposium,” to be held October 25-27.  The conference will feature a remarkable array of speakers and programs, including presentations by Saybrook faculty:

  • Fritjof Capra on Laing’s “The Voice of Experience”
  • Betty Cannon on Laing, Sartre, and the Practice of Existential Therapy
  • Maureen O’Hara on Varieties of Authentic Encounter: R.D. Laing, Carl Rogers, and Me
  • Leon Redler and Edie Irwin on Laing and Spirituality
  • Kingsley Hall participants panel discussion
  • Screenings of the film All Divided Selves as well as a short tour film of R.D. Laing in 1972
