    Brian Hunt has been a practising psychoanalyst for more than 40 years. During the last 22 years he has worked extensively with post addictive, severely depressed and borderline patients and their children. Brian’s lifelong interest in the history of art and use of visual imagery in psychoanalysis has led him to consider imagery such as that of the Byzantine and Romanesque periods as significant cultural bearers of primary process material. Brian has also worked with children and studied the relationship between individual development and the adoption of social and cultural images. He trained as a teacher in order to work with and explore the development of children’s visual imagery and has lectured on children’s visual imagery and imagery in psychosis.
