Lost in the Echo: Understanding racial echoism within psychotherapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Viewed through the lens of a psychotherapy client, this paper
considers how the adoption of the position of echo sits central to the post-colonial
experience (Windrush) of the other in attempts to build and maintain a life in the
UK. The paper then aids us in recognizing the adaptive nature of the other as it
attempts to survive the colonizer’s conscious and unconscious subjugation, with
all its psychological costs, together with a possible route towards post-colonial
psychological reintegration.
