Why Can’t a Woman be More Like a Man?

  • Bath Royal Literary & Scientific Institute (BRLSI) 16-18 Queen Square Bath, England, BA1 2HN United Kingdom (map)

An exploration of the revisioning of sex, gender and sexuality currently taking place, through the lens of psychoanalytically informed theory and practice as well as popular culture.

Susan Lee

Psychodynamic Psychotherapist

Variant gender and sexual identities are entering our consciousness and experience through popular culture and the consulting room. Do they require us to re-think some of our basic psychanalytic concepts e.g. sexual difference, personality development, psychopathology and perversion? This expression of diversity is taking place at a time of unprecedented growth in hate crime, media/social media coercion and prohibition of expressions of difference. This talk will explore these phenomena with reference to psychoanalytic theory and popular culture.

Susan Lee is a BPC/UKCP Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer. She has an MA in personal and organisational development and has worked with many organisations in a consultancy role as well as holding senior positions. She has a particular interest in culture and diversity.
