Difficulties with Psychoanalysis Case Conceptualization

July 20th, 2013 · 3 Comments ·

Originally I was interested in psychoanalysis as a form of socio-cultural critique, something like what Ricoeur did in his work “Freud and Philosophy.” I wrote a lengthy article (published here) but hadn’t really conceived of it as something that actually could be used to treat persons with psychiatric disorders.
