Desire and the Female Therapist by Joy Schaverien
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This text explores 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 approach to desire in therapy. Illustrated with pictures as well as clinical vignettes, this book follows on from Joy Schaverien's previous work "The Revealing Image". Written primarily for psychotherapists, art therapists and analysts, this text should be useful reading for all therapists affected by erotic transference and countertransference in the course of clinical practice.
