Abstract

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.
To address the absence of the exploration of the unconscious experience
of privilege within counselling and psychotherapy, the book 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.
