for bpf members
The next meeting of this group will happen on Thursday 4th May at 8.30pm in Room 2 at Mapesbury Road.
The meeting will look at two papers, one of which we have read before, which deal with different approaches to gender variance:
Corbett, K. (1996). Homosexual Boyhood: Notes on Girlyboys. Gender and Psychoanalysis, 1:429-461.
Friedman, R.C. (1997). Response to Ken Corbett's: “Homosexual Boyhood Notes on Girlyboys” (Vol. 1, No. 4, 1996). Gender and Psychoanalysis, 2
Both of these papers are available on PEPWeb.
Jo Robertson will introduce the discussion, and will draw on her notes of her treatment of a patient.
Serena Heller and I will also give feedback on our experience of attending the recent conference on Transgender and Psychoanalysis organised by the Site and the Freud Museum.
Attendance is possible via a Skype link. Please contact Room Bookings for detailed instructions allowing one week before the event.
