Desire and the Female Therapist by Joy Schaverien

Book Description

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.
