Presenter: Farhad Dalal, PhD 

Discussant:  Sadeq Rahimi, PhD 

 

 

This presentation critically collates psychoanalytic perspectives on racism, prejudice, and difference. It argues that these explanations do not convince because the mainstream psychoanalytic account of the human condition is not only asocial, but also internalist and individualistic. Topic incorporates the ideas of the psychoanalyst and group analyst S.H. Foulkes and those of the sociologist Norbert Elias, to flesh out a psycho-social explanatory system, which places power-relations at its center.  
 
Farhad Dalal Ph.D. is a psychotherapist and Group Analyst in private practice in Devon, England. He is a Training Group Analyst and supervisor for the Institute of Group Analysis, London. He also works with many organizations. With colleagues, he has recently started delivering a group psychotherapy training in India (which is supported by donations) www.groupanalysisindia.com.

He has published many papers and four books to date: Taking the Group Seriously, Race, Colour and the Processes of Racialization, Thought Paralysis: The Virtues of Discrimination, and CBT – The Cognitive Behavioural Tsunami: Managerialism, Politics, and the Corruptions of Science. www.dalal.org.uk
