Psychoanalysis, Class and Politics: Encounters in the Clinical Setting

£27.00

Product description

228 pages including index. Illustrated covers. Spine lightly creased. Faint orange marks on bottom of block. Pages are crisp, clean and free of any markings.

'How do class and politics shape the unconscious? Do political concerns belong in psychodynamic treatment?

The effects of an increasingly polarised, insecure and threatening world mean that the ideologically enforced split between the political order and personal life is becoming difficult to sustain. This book explores the impact of the social and political domains on the individual experience.

The contributions included in this volume describe how issues of class and politics, and the intense emotions they engender, emerge in the clinical setting and how psychotherapists can respectfully address them rather than deny their significance. They demonstrate how clinicians need to take into account the complex convergences between psychic and social reality in the clinical setting in order to help their patients understand the anxiety, fear, insecurity and anger caused by the complex relations of class and power. This examination of the psychodynamics of terror and aggression and the unconscious defences employed to deny reality offers powerful insights into the microscopic unconscious ways that ideology is enacted and lived.

Psychoanalysis, Class and Politics will be of interest to all mental health professionals interested in improving their understanding of the ideological factors that impede or facilitate critical and engaged citizenship. It has a valuable contribution to make to the psychoanalytic enterprise, as well as to related scholarly and professional disciplines and public intellectual discourse' ( Information taken from rear cover)
