Supervisors

Research details

This is a reflexive, theoretical thesis that addresses the question of sexuality in group analysis. The aim of this proposed thesis is to inspire and generate new material for group analytic training, and to consolidate and expand current conceptions of sexuality, and specifically homosexuality, within group analytic theory, in order to create new theoretical paradigms as to how such categories might be explored within a therapeutic group.

Research interests

  • Critical psychiatry
  • Elderly care
  • Psychoanalysis
