Conference: What Might Clinical Psychoanalysis Learn from Queer Theories of Sexuality?
Mr David RICHARDS
SESSION 2: What Might Clinical Psychoanalysis Learn from Queer Theories of Sexuality?
Session two begins by talking about the Introduction (by Noreen) and Afterword (by Eve) to Clinical Encounters in Sexuality, before broadening out the discussion to consider the ways in which queer theories of sexuality might enrich and enliven clinical psychoanalytic considerations of sexuality. The session begins with four brief, informal responses (10 mins each), followed by discussion with delegates.
