MPS 44th Annual Symposium: Queer Theory Meets Psychoanalysis: Productive Synergies and Clinical Implications

  • Schoolcraft College 18600 Haggerty Road Livonia, MI, 48152 United States (map)

Course Description:

Psychotherapists and psychoanalysts are often unaware of Queer Theory and its relationship to thinking analytically about non-normative and normative genders and sexualities. They are unfamiliar with the theoretical constructs of ‘sexual life and sexual death drives’ proposed to be related to polymorphous sexuality. Understanding Queer Theory propositions will give new perspectives on how perverse sexual practices provide acceptable expression of self configurations.
