Psychopathology: Theory and Practice
19 December 2019 – Sian Morgan
Sian will draw on her research into phobias. She will mainly be focusing on claustrophobia and agoraphobia.
Claustraphobia as pathological fullness and agoraphobia as pathological emptiness, both defences against painful traumatic and unmourned losses, leading to a constriction of both internal and external space. She will explore the notion of transitional space within which loss and emptiness can be borne and transformed through the expression of creativity.
