The APT-Birmingham Public Lecture

Saturday 10th November 2018


David Morgan

In this presentation I will talk about my work as a psychoanalyst with people who are migrants and asylum seekers. I will refer to the political aspects of this work including the psychoanalyst’s role as an activist and/or a representation of the oppressor. I will draw on my work in refugee centres, with political groups and private practice. I previously wrote a paper ‘Is it Coz I’m White’ to explore these aspects of transference in “Thinking Space: Promoting Thinking about Race, Culture and Diversity” (Ed Frank Lowe).

Dr David Morgan is a consultant psychotherapist and psychoanalyst, British Psychoanalytic Society both in the NHS and private practice, and worked for many years as a Consultant Psychotherapist at the Tavistock and Portman Clinic NHS Trust.
He is a Fellow of the British Psychoanalytic Society (BPAS), training analyst and supervisor (BPA) and training therapist/supervisor for the BPF and Tavistock Clinic. He lectures and talks widely. Including a series of broadcasts called “Frontier Psychoanalyst”:

His publications include Lectures on Violence, Perversion, and Delinquency (Karnac, 2007), co-edited with Stan Ruszczynski; e-books on narcissism (LSE) love and death and his edited book The Political Mind is in press.


J.J. Bola
