9781782204459: The Clinic of Disability: Psychoanalytical Approaches

This publication brings together eleven articles on the clinical treatment of disability from French researchers in the fields of psychology, anthropology, psychiatry, and philosophy. The authors all have practical experience in the field and most are clinicians sharing a common psychoanalytical epistemology.

The diverse nature of their contributions opens a window onto the mental life of people affected by various deficiencies, be they cognitive, motor, sensory or even multiple, and of those close to them, at all ages.

The work provides English-speaking readers with an insight into the way French authors raise the relevant issues, elaborate theories relating to clinical disability management and implement innovative practices.

Each of the authors develops an original approach, affording recognition to the subjectivity and inter-subjectivity of the disabled person and those dear to them, intimating that the disability (as with all human experience) is all about the relation existing between the person concerned and their life story, and also their relations with others--with the society and culture in which the condition emerges and evolves throughout life.

Review:

"For decades, those struggling with disabilities have remained very much on the margins--often overlooked, ignored, pitied, or mistreated. Happily, mental health professionals have worked hard to place disability at the very center of clinical discourse, so that everyone may now benefit from the fruits of new developments in the psychological therapies. Simone Korff Sausse and Regine Scelles have gathered a group of some of the most impressive disability psychoanalysts in France and have served up a feast of clinical insight, progressive psychotherapeutic practice and, above all, a sense of hopefulness for the future. This book should occupy a seminal place on the bookshelves of every practitioner of the psychological arts." (Brett Kahr, Senior Fellow Tavistock Relationships, Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology, London, and founding Trustee and Director of the Institute of Psychotherapy and Disability)

"The disability therapy field will be enriched by the translation into English of the long-standing work of French colleagues. A key group of eminent academics led by Professor Simone Korff Sausse and Professor Regine Scelles have transformed the French attitude to intellectual disability by their annual inter-university conferences under the auspices of Seminaire Universitaire International sur la Clinique du Handicap. A profound psychoanalytic and philosophic thread runs through the contributions." (Baroness Sheila Hollins, Emeritus Prof. of Psychiatry of Disability at St. George's University of London and Past President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and of the British Medical Association)

"In this book, outstanding clinical and academic writers present the essence of their original and inspiring psychoanalytic research in and approach to physical and mental disability in an inclusive perspective. Their reflections are embedded in a rich French cultural tradition with a high clinical relevance. A revelation!" (Johan De Groef, former President of the European Association on Mental Health in Intellectual Disability and the Belgian School for Psychoanalysis)
