|Title: ||Creature Comforts or Beastly Presence: Interpreting Human-Animal Relations in Contemporary Psychodynamic Thought and Practice|
|Affiliation: ||Oxford University|
|Issue Date: ||2010 |
|Abstract: ||Animals have featured in psychoanalytic writing and clinical practice since Freud’s early case studies, yet attention to clients’ animal focused empathy appears infrequently in contemporary literature. This research seeks to examine, through a discursive analytic perspective, contemporary psychodynamic theorising and practice to see what happens when clients bring animal related material to their sessions. How is such sensitivity understood, conceptualised and worked with? What might this tell us about both the psychodynamics of concern for members of other species and psychoanalysis as a body of institutionalised knowledge and professional praxis?|
