Questioning “Diversity” in Psychoanalysis

Lara Sheehi – Liberation, not representation: “Diversity” and stabilizing coloniality

Foluke Taylor – Following Broken Water: Decolonial continuities and therapeutic emergent-cy

This is the third in a series of seminars on Decolonising Psychoanalysis, organised by the Race and Culture Committee of the Guild of Psychotherapists. The series is intended to open up conversations about psychoanalysis by initiating Transatlantic Dialogues between academic research and clinical practice.

In this instance, both speakers are clinicians, researchers, teachers and activists, and their talks address the seemingly intractable problem of ‘diversity’ in psychoanalysis – within the profession, the theory and the therapeutic relationship.

Black Feminisms in the Consulting Room
Foluke Taylor and Gail Lewis converse with each other about why and how Black feminisms have much to offer the ‘consulting room’ and why it should be taken up as gift full of resources by psychotherapeutic and psychoanalytic communities of practice.  This is part of a Confer series called Women on the Couch.
