    Clinical writing and publishing: A psychoanalytic exploration of writers at work

    Wednesday, April 1, 2015
    8:00 PM

    "Clinical writing and publishing: A psychoanalytic exploration of writers at work" with Elise Miller, Ph.D., MFT

    Dr. Miller will present her ongoing research into best practices and practical strategies used by productive clinical writers. Her theories about how writers enable or disable themselves when approaching and completing projects have been developed in the context of interviews with both productive and stymied clinical authors, and analyses of published papers by psychoanalytically-informed authors who are writing about writing. She is interested in how clinical or psychoanalytic knowledge is produced and transmitted, so that we can better understand how some voices manage to join the discourses of our field, while others end up excluded from them.
