  • Travel and Movement in Clinical Psychologyby Miraj Desai

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2018; US$ 98.15

    This book concerns clinical psychology, but it is most concerned with the world outside the clinic. That world—where culture, history, and economy are found—radically impacts the public’s mental health. However these worldly considerations often do not feature centrally in the science and practice of clinical psychology, a subfield of psychology seemingly... more...

    Indiana University Press 2018; Not Available

    Levinas's account of responsibility challenges dominant notions of time, autonomy, and subjectivity according to Cynthia D. Coe.

Tracing the... more...

    Springer International Publishing 2018; US$ 98.15

    This book initiates the discussion between psychoanalysis and recent humanist and social scientific interest in a fundamental contemporary topic – the nonhuman.

In doing so they unravel a less-than-human... more...
