Growing Up Gay:
The adult maturing process for gay/bi men
Tim Foskett in conversation with Walt Odets
Sunday 08 November, 18:00-20:30 on Zoom
In this online workshop Tim will be talking with author and psychotherapist Walt Odets about his groundbreaking book Out of the Shadows
Drawing on a lifetime's work as a clinical psychologist in California, Walt uses Erik Erikson's 8 stages of life and the stories of his patients as well as those of his own deep relationships with other gay/bi men to illuminate the choices we make at different stages of life.
The evening will include activities to reflect on your own developmental journey and time for group discussion. We'll focus on the adult stages of development proposed by Erikson, which address themes of Intimacy vs Isolation, Productivity vs Stagnation and Integrity vs Despair.
Join us for a deep dive into a humane conversation about human development through a gay/bi lens.
'Odets's warm and lyrical voice, his inspiring picture of how imaginative gay life can be, has sent me queuing for the couch.' Evening Standard
'A gay man could read this book as if his life depended on it - and perhaps it does' Andrew Holleran, author of Dancer from the Dance
