PhD RESEARCH UNIVERSAL DIFFERENCE: UNDERSTANDING THE ARCHETYPE OF THE OTHER

As part of my ongoing PhD research into understanding the nature of difference and exploring the archetype of the Other, on this page I will be publishing links to papers and conference presentations related to my research.


Articles

From time to time I will also be posting articles about issues within Counselling and Psychotherapy that I feel are of importance to my work, and have either had published or have written for my own enjoyment. Please feel free to read through these at your leisure, and if there are any comments please send me an email:


PhD Research, Books & Articles. Being The Other Article

Being The Other: A Creative Exploration of the Identity of the Other

Influenced by Fanon’s idea that the slave needs the master as much as the master needs the slave, this article uses sand play work to explore the unconscious draw for the other in relation to the majority. Offering an important insight into this difficult and contradictory relationship, this research argues that for difference to be fully understood we must make conscious and recognise this relationship for the other in order to free the other from their fear of their potential.


PhD Research, Books & Articles. Heuristic Exploration of being the Other

Duality To Unity: A Heuristic Exploration Of The Experience Of Being The Other

This research combines the heuristic research method with creative techniques common to Transpersonal psychotherapy in the belief that by working with one’s unconscious experience as the outsider metaphorically and symbolically it is possible to access spiritual wholeness (originally published in the Integral Transpersonal Journal - August 2016).


PhD Research, Books & Articles. BACP We Are All Of Us Other

We Are All Us Other

This article challenges us to recognise that we are all of us ‘other’, or potentially so, and it is this realisation we fear when we encounter difference (Originally published in Therapy Today, June 16 and reproduced here with permission of the BACP)


PhD Research, Books & Articles. Examining Buber's I article

Examining Buber’s I: narcissism and the othering of the other

This article asks what psychotherapists in a majority culture dominated profession learn about themselves from interactions involving dual stereotyping (Published in the JCPCP 2016, Vol 12, No 2),


PhD Research, Books & Articles. Breaking free from the Shadows

Breaking free from the Shadow(s)

PhD Research, Books & Articles. Transpersonal Narcissism

Everything and Nothing: Spiritual intersubjectivity as a counterpoint to transpersonal narcissism

This article examines the quest for a more participatory exploration of the transpersonal, while acknowledging the dangers of ‘ethnocentric imperialism’. Published in the Journal of Critical Psychology Counselling and Psychotherapy, June 2015


PhD Research, Books & Articles. Afrocentric Transpersonal BPS article

Searching for Afrocentric spirituality within the transpersonal

Published August 2015 in the BPS Transpersonal Review, 2015, Volume 17, Number One. The aim of this paper is to show, via the lens of a culturally specific dream, how the transpersonal could benefit from broadening its approach to spirituality to include the wisdom of African spiritual beliefs.
This is a pre-publication version of the following article: Searching for afrocentric spirituality within the transpersonal.

MOTHERLAND

On the day the years of physical and emotional abuse became public, Karl Taylor knew that his life had changed forever more. Finally realising how scarred his life has been at the hands of both his parents, he suddenly leaves, feeling his need for a break, a separation that will become just the beginning of his voyage of self-discovery. Embarking on a journey that will take him across Central and Eastern Africa, Karl’s quest into the Motherland starts to ask challenging questions of who he is, raises the spectres of his history as he understands why he is, and gifts him the first embers of who he is truly meant to be.

THE WHITE HEART OF CALISTIA

It is a challenging time for the Church of Ran.

Established over half a millennia past, its current leader is terminally ill, his absence threatening to leave the Church with a void at its pinnacle, and unsettle the fragile alliance of the Nations of the North.

Yet already shadowy elements are making their move, attempting to grasp the advantage presented by this momentary weakness within the alliance. Cardinal Nathan, respected servant of the Church, uncovers a far reaching plot originating from a nation in exile, designed to maintain this dangerous period of instability and guide it to its destructive conclusion.

But even he cannot fathom just how far those charged with breaking the alliance will go. Uncovering a scheme stretching from the Great Cathedral on the island nation of Ran Pasa in the south, to the mountains of Queseda on the mainland and beyond, it will encapsulate the fates of both an orphan girl from the north and a slave boy from a land far away, and involve bravery both ancient and new.
