Intersections of Privilege and Otherness in Counselling and Psychotherapy
Intersections of Privilege and Otherness in Counselling and Psychotherapy presents an in-depth understanding of the role of privilege, and of the unconscious experience of privilege and difference within the world of counselling and psychotherapy.
The book addresses the absence of the exploration of the unconscious experience of privilege within counselling and psychotherapy. It not only presents an exploration of intersectional difference, but also discusses the deeper unconscious understanding of difference, and how privilege plays a role in the construction of otherness. It does so by utilising material from both within the world of psychotherapy, and from the fields of post-colonial theory, feminist discourse, and other theoretical areas of relevance. The book also offers an exploration and understanding of intersectionality and how this impacts upon our conscious and unconscious exploration of privilege and otherness.
With theoretically underpinned and inherently practical psychotherapeutic case studies, this book will serve as a guidebook for counsellors and psychotherapists.
The book is published by Routledge.
