Chapter 7 of Psychoanalytic Thinking on the Unhoused Mind: 1st Edition, Edited by Gabrielle Brown
Description: Psychoanalytic Thinking on the Unhoused Mind illuminates the psychological underpinnings of current societal problems: homelessness, mental distress, loneliness and states of societal breakdown and exclusion. Illustrated with a broad range of clinical work as well as thoughts on art and literature, the book brings to life complex tensions between the individual psyche, the group, and wider political and cultural structures. ‘Unhoused’ states of mind are explored in rough sleepers, ex-prisoners, survivors of institutional abuse and family trauma, and people living with personality disorder, addiction, psychosis and dementia. Chapters describe outreach, assessment and long-term psychotherapy, as well as reflective practice with staff teams and care systems, and learning from consultation, supervision and policy development. New therapeutic responses to chronic risk and to resilience are developed from psychoanalytic understandings of difficulties with containment and care. The collection will be of value to psychotherapists and other mental health practitioners, as well as those working in therapeutic, residential and criminal justice settings and outreach services.

'Unhoused Mind' reaches No. 2 on BRETT KAHR’S TOP TEN BOOKS OF 2019
"Over the years, many sneering critics have dismissed psychoanalysis as little more than navel-gazing for the entitled and wealthy of Park Avenue or Hampstead. But anyone who takes the time to read Gabrielle Brown’s vitally important new, edited book about psychotherapeutic engagement with the homeless and destitute will be moved to tears and will admire the sturdy work undertaken with those men and women who simply have no access to our comfortable, carpet-covered or leather couches. An experienced psychotherapist, currently based at the Portman Clinic in London, having served previously as Senior Psychotherapist in the Lifeworks Psychotherapy Team at St. Mungo’s Homeless Charity, Brown has curated a collection of fine essays written by some very experienced colleagues, documenting their paradigm-shifting contributions to the field. A book of this nature gives us hope that, one day, compassionate psychological treatments will become available to every single human being, irrespective of social class and financial status".
