LGBT Study Group: The B and the T in LGBT
The LGBT Study Group of the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis & Psychology cordially invites you to:
The B and the T in LGBT
Speaker: Mark J. Blechner, Ph.D.
This talk will focus on people whose sexual orientation or gender identity get relatively less attention from psychoanalysts and have gotten less attention in our study group – bisexuals and heterosexual cross-dressers. I will look at the history of bisexuality and genderqueerness, as conceptualized by psychoanalysts and sexologists, and suggest new concepts to make sense of the data from clinical work and empirical studies.
Mark J. Blechner, Ph.D. is Training and Supervising Analyst at the William Alanson White Institute and Faculty and Supervisor at NYU. He is Editor Emeritus of the journal Contemporary Psychoanalysis, Contributing Editor of Studies in Gender and Sexuality, and Editorial Board member of the Journal of Gay and Lesbian Mental Health. He is the former Director of the HIV Clinical Service at the William Alanson White Institute, author of Sex Changes: Transformations in Society and Psychoanalysis (Routledge, 2009), The Dream Frontier (Routledge, 2001) and editor of Hope and Mortality: Psychodynamic Approaches to AIDS and HIV (Routledge, 1997).
