In Psychoanalysis as a Subversive Phenomenon, Amber M. Trotter explores processes of social change, highlights the role of ethics, and illuminates ways in which analytic theory and practice can disrupt contemporary American culture.

Situating psychoanalysis as an ethical discipline, Amber M. Trotter articulates a compelling vision of a psychoanalytic ethic that draws upon its radical roots and capacity for disrupting the status quo. Trotter’s argument is a clarion call for psychoanalysis to sharpen its 'subversive edge' through increased engagement with issues of structural, economic, and political inequality. This book will be of interest to all who value psychoanalysis and its subversive potential to effect progressive social change.

— Karen Starr, New York University; coauthor of A Psychotherapy for the People: Toward a Progressive Psychoanalysis

Amber M. Trotter, PsyD, is private practitioner in Healdsburg and San Francisco and teacher at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
