CHRIS VINCENT 

 
Introduction 
 
I trained as a social worker originally and then worked at TCCR (now Tavistock Relationships) from 1977 until 2002 where I trained as a psychotherapist. From 1980 to 1986 I was one of the institute’s Divorce Court Study team whose work was written up in the book-In the Child=s Best Interests. I then ran the Institute's Divorce Consultation Service and, on the basis of this experience, ran training events for professionals in the Family Courts. From 2002 until 2006 I was a non-medical Consultant Psychotherapist working in a Psychiatric Hospital in the National Health Service specialising in couple work and treating sexual dysfunction. I now have a small private practice where many of my clients are struggling with separation and divorce matters. I also provide consultation to other professionals and continue to write about clinical work. Relevant recent publications are: 
 
Vincent, C (2102) Commentary on Avi Shmueli’s chapter ‘Working with High Conflict Divorce’ in How Couples Shape Our World: Clinical Practice, Research and Policy Perspectives, Edited by Andrew Balfour, Mary Morgan and Christopher Vincent, Karnac, London. 
 
Vincent. C. (2014) Getting Back To or Getting Back At; Understanding Overt Aggression in Couple Relationships, Chapter 6 in Psychoanalytic Couple Therapy: Foundations of Theory and Practice. Edited by David Scharff and Jill Savege Scharff, Karnac, London. 

Passion 

In my private practice I see many clients who are anticipating, going through or contending with the consequences of separation/divorce. I want to share my thinking from the perspective of a couple psychotherapist with other professionals from different orientations and backgrounds on the assumption that we can profitably learn from one another for the benefit of our clients.
