Desire and the Female Therapist is one of the first full-length explorations of erotic transference and countertransference from the point of view of the female therapist. Particular attention is given to the female therapist/male client relationship and to the effects of desire made visible in art objects in analytical forms of psychotherapy. Drawing on aesthetic and psychoanalytic theory, specifically Lacan and Jung, the book offers a significant new approach to desire in therapy. Richly illustrated, with pictures as well as clinical vignettes, this book follows on from Joy Schaverien's innovative previous work The Revealing Image. Written primarily for psychotherapists, art therapists and analysts, Desire and the Female Therapist will be essential reading for all therapists affected by erotic transference and countertransference in the course of clinical practice and all whose clients bring art works to therapy.

About the Author:

Joy Schaverien is a psychotherapist and art therapist in private practice in London and Leicestershire.

Review:

`A book brimming with ideas ... of interest to professionals thinking about issues of gender in the female therapist-male patient dyad and those whose patients bring art objects to the consulting room.' International Journal of Psychoanalysis

'Schaverien has some timely thoughts on the gender issue for female therapists.' - International Journal of Psychotherapy

'An open, immensely erudite and educative book...this is vital and pleasurable reading for all interested in the construction, consumption and interpretaion of images within and without the walls of the consulting room' - Journal of Analytical Psychology

'A significant contribution to the growing literature by women clinicians on the area of female countertransference and desire.' - Psychodynamic Counselling

'Interesting ideas and engaging clinical material. I found the discussion honest and very touching as it gave a feel of the therapist's internal struggles with difficult patients...Schaverien demonstrates quite conclusively that the erotic is present in art therapy and needs to be acknowledged.' - Inscape

'In this scholarly book Schaverien has two purposes. She says that these are to 'bring the desire of the female therapist out into the light' and 'to open the topic for discussion inall forms of psychotherapy'. She does achieve these ends but her book is much richer than even her declared aims would suggest.' - Counselling

'Friedrich Hayek's influence has been tremendous.' - Milton Friedman

'I regard Hayek's work as a new opening of the most fundamental debate in the field of political philosophy.' - Sir Karl Popper

'In ... Professor Hayek's thesis there is a great deal of truth ... collectivism is not inherently democratic, but, on the contrary, gives to a tyrannical minority such powers as the Spanish Inquisition never dreamed of.' - George Orwell

'One of the great political thinkers of our time.' - Roger Scruton
