Conference: What Might Clinical Psychoanalysis Learn from Queer Theories of Sexuality?
Dr Lisa Baraitser
SESSION 3: ‘Experience’ & ‘Encounter’ in Practice & Theory
Session three begins with each discussant giving a brief, informal talk (10 mins each) on the speaker’s understanding of the two terms ‘experience’ and ‘encounter’ based on the discussant’s practice as a clinician and/or an artist and/or a theorist. ‘Experience’ and ‘encounter’ are two central concepts underpinning the book Clinical Encounters in Sexuality.
