Fanonian revolutionary practice and Fanonian psychotherapeutic practice
Helen Neville and Lou turner just published on Fanonian psychotherapy, “Frantz Fanon’s Psychotherapeutic Approaches to Clinical Work: Practicing Internationally with Marginalized Communities” (2020). It’s the first collection of its kind to situate, actually push, Fanon into disciplines, professions, and practices of psychology. The case studies are powerful. Recognizing Frantz Fanon’s remarkable legacy to applied mental health and therapeutic practices which decolonize, humanize, and empower marginalized populations, this text serves as a timely call for research, education, and clinical work to establish and further develop Fanonian approaches and practices.
The discussion will be hosted by Nigel Gibson. Nigel C. Gibson is author of Fanon: The Postcolonial Imagination (2003), Fanonian Practices in South Africa (2011), and the co-author (with Roberto Beneduce) of Frantz Fanon, Psychiatry and Politics (2017). He is currently working on an edited collection, Fanon and Rationality of Revolt. His two earlier edited collections on Fanon are Rethinking Fanon: The Continuing Dialogue (1999) and Living Fanon: Global Perspectives (2011). He teaches at Emerson College in Boston.
