Intersubjectivity, Desire, and the Mimetic Brain: René Girard and Psychoanalysis
I have been asked to deliver a conference speech at the “Intersubjectivity, Desire, and the Mimetic Brain: René Girard and Psychoanalysis” conference in November att St John’s College Universityfo Cambridge (details can be found at http://www.girardpsy.com).
This is a chance for me to meet up with leading figures in the field of mimetic theory from around the world. I will be presenting paper titled “When Leymann meets Girard: Re-evaluating workplace mobbing”. Over the next few posts I will explain what mimetic theory is and why I think it is important to be used within a psychotherapeutic/counselling setting and how I use it in my practice.
