Contents:
Psychoanalysis is not what you think -- Science: avoiding analysis of the mind -- Sex: avoiding analysis of the body -- Schisms: avoiding analytic politics -- Teaching: avoiding analytic practice -- Society: engaging with the British tradition -- Conversations: taking care of health -- Therapy: closer encounters -- Research: studying and experiencing -- Training: in group analysis -- Personal: training analysis -- Diagnosis: clinical structures -- Supervision: confession and confidentiality -- Enlightenment: second nature in brazil -- Trauma: truth and reconciliation -- Theory: Iek, culture and the clinic -- Identification: Laibach and the state -- Japan: a limit case for analysis -- Queer: from Russia with love -- Islam: faith in Freud -- Transference: ethics in action.
Summary: Psychoanalysis is a strange and mysterious practice. In his new book, Ian Parker offers insights into his own experiences, first as trainee then as analyst, the common assumptions about psychoanalysis which can be so misleading, as well as a map of the key debates in the field today. Beginning with his own history, at first avoiding psychoanalysis before training as a Lacanian, Parker moves on to explore the wider historical development of clinical practice, making an argument for the importance of language, culture and history in this process. The book offers commentary on the key schools of thought, and how they manifest in the practice of psychoanalysis in different regions around the world. Psychoanalysis, Clinic and Context will be of great value to practitioners and social theorists who want to know how psychoanalytic ideas play out in training and the clinic, for trainees and students of psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and for the general reader who wants to know what psychoanalysis is and how it works.
