Clinical Encounters in Sexuality: Psychoanalytic Practice and Queer Theory

Noreen Giffney (Editor), Eve Watson (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

Abstract

What are the discourses of sexuality underpinning psychoanalysis, and how do they impact on clinical practice? Clinical Encounters in Sexuality makes an intervention into the fields of clinical psychoanalysis and sexuality studies and stages, for the first time, a sustained clinical engagement with queer theory. Themes focused on include identity, desire, pleasure, perversion, ethics, and discourse.

This interdisciplinary collection of essays includes thirty-two contributors working in queer theory and/or clinical psychoanalysis and from a number of different psychoanalytic traditions: Freudian, Kleinian, Lacanian, Independent, Jungian, and Relational. The book invites readers to enter into a self-reflective engagement with the text and their own views on sexuality, paying particular attention to the psychosocial underpinnings of sexuality as it exists and can play out in the consulting room.
