Overview

Feeling Queer or Queer Feelings? presents highly innovative and contemporary ideas for counsellors, counselling and clinical psychologists and psychotherapists to consider in their work with non-heterosexual clients.

Ground-breaking ideas are presented by new thinkers in the area for issues such as:

  • coming out
  • transgender desire
  • theoretical modalities in working with HIV
  • the role of therapy in bondage and discipline, domination and submission, and sadomasochism
  • the use of queer theory in therapeutic research.

Feeling Queer or Queer Feelings? will challenge present ideas about sex, gender and sexuality, and will prove to be invaluable for clinicians in this field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A wonderful blend of psychology, philosophy and politics, this book is an essential reader for anyone wishing to work intelligently and sensitively with clients. It covers an impressive breadth of scholarship: from psychoanalysis to phenomenology, to systemic and social constructivist theories. And just when you think you've read it all before, there's something to be learned waiting round the corner." - Roshan das Nair, Consultant Clinical Psychologist (HIV & Sexual Health), Department of Clinical Psychology & Neuropsychology, Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, UK

"I particularly enjoyed Lyndsey Moon’s own chapter about the construction of emotion, Catherine Butler and Angela Byrne’s readable and lucid account of their work in HIV and sexual health services and Peter Hegarty’s writing on queer methodologies." – Chris Rose, Psychotherapists and Writer, Therapy Today, May 2008
