About this title

Synopsis:

A multidisciplinary collection of chapters on gender and sexual diversity (GSD) that moves beyond the LGBTQ(IA) acronym to include non-binary and heterosexual variation. It brings together academics, practitioners and activists from the UK, US, Canada, Russia and India.

From the Back Cover:

Critical & Experiential is a multidisciplinary collection of chapters written from within the newly emerging field in gender and sexual diversity (GSD) that moves beyond the LGBTQ(IA) acronym to include non-binary and heterosexual variation. It brings together academics, practitioners and activists from the UK, US, Canada, Russia and India working in the fields of psychology, clinical psychology, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, counselling, sociology, cultural studies, political activism, legal consultancy and legal expert witnessing.

The contributions are primarily aimed at mental health, psychology and psychotherapy practitioners and teachers, as well as those working with psychological aspects of social sciences and legal theory. The concepts of ‘critical’ and ‘critique’ are reframed throughout as experientially provoked thinking and thought. This collection provides a practical reference handbook to critique our range and styles of learning, teaching and interventions in the GSD field. However, it is also a stimulus to broader questions about mental health in the psychological organization of social and professional values that, painfully, still demand to be voiced, if not critiqued.

‘Practitioners will find especially helpful explorations of non-normative gender and sexual lifestyles that are not frequently or accessibly related in mainstream literature. Activists for issues in gender and sexuality will welcome the unapologetic advocacy of under-represented identities found throughout. Those exploring their own sexual and gendered self will find proud, frank and non-pathologizing discussions of gendered identities and sexual practices that will be invaluable to them in their own process of personal understanding. The multiplicity of authorial voices, representation of the range and spectrum of cultural, sexual/interrelational experiences, theoretical perspectives, personal experience, scholarship and passionate on the ground activism, makes for a very rich and highly informative collection that many working in different disciplines and modalities will benefit from.’

Barry Watt, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist,
Council Member at The Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis, London
