A “double bind” is a special type of conflict which creates a “no-win” situation; i.e., a situation in which one is “damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.” According to anthropologist Gregory Bateson, who originally defined the notion of the double bind, such conflicts are at the root of both creativity and psychosis. The difference is whether or not one is able to identify and transcend the bind in an appropriate way. This workshop will cover some of the key skills necessary to identify the underlying conditions which create conflicts double binds, and thus to resolve them.
