Description

This session is an attempt to intervene in psychology’s violent past and troubling present by calling for notions of “care-ful” practice, compelling us to recognize and celebrate the permeable, porous, flexible boundaries between bodies and selves. With this heuristic of care, this paper hopes to trouble the separation between rigor and relational responsibility, to trouble objectivism, to oust the illusion of cool rationality.
