The Palgrave Psychotherapy Series is aimed at introducing key concepts in the practice and theory of psychotherapy to students, trainees and practitioners. This important addition to the series explores the popular topic of race and racism, and its consideration within the realm of difference issues across the therapeutic approaches. Whilst providing a much-needed critical overview of the therapeutic literature on race and cultural difference, M.Fakhry Davids also takes the bolder step of presenting a new clinically based model of racism in the mind and demonstrates how this may help practitioners to recognise and deal with such issues as they arise in the consulting room.

About the Author:

M. Fakhry Davidsis an Honorary Consultant Psychologist at the London Clinic of Psychoanalysis. He also runs a private practice in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.

Racism's external forms, from racial assault to petty discrimination, are readily recognized. However, its internal dimensions are easily overlooked: how can we understand what happens in the mind of those engaged in or experiencing racism?
This book explores the inner relationship between the self and the socially stereotyped 'racial' other, providing a clinically derived model of how racist dynamics play out in the mind. Presenting an original theory of the psychology of racism, it:
--Reviews and analyses the existing literature on racism and psychoanalysis, including an extensive study of Frantz Fanon's psychological model;
--Presents new, in-depth clinical observations of racist interchanges in the consulting room and group settings, and new perspectives on such interchanges in the outside world;
--Theorizes the way in which the race/class divide is internalized and operates, and considers the relationship between individual and institutional racism;
--Illustrates how racism can be addressed in group and individual settings.
Arguing that we cannot work with problems of racism without understanding the inner processes that underpin it, this book is an indispensable tool for trainee and experienced psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and counselors. Its formulations are directly relevant to professionals and academics working across the boundaries of race in health, medical and social service settings.
