The Vitality of Fragmentation: Desublimation and the Symbolic Order
By Geoffrey Thompson
This chapter will focus on theoretical, clinical and personal challenges surrounding my work as an art therapist in an adult outpatient service of a psychiatric hospital. The evolution of my thinking pervades my clinical work with the client discussed in the vignette, as I sought to integrate desublimation from art theory and philosophy with psychoanalytic theory. (Thompson, 2007).

Newsflash from the Meeting of the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis in Charlotte, North Carolina03/20/2012
It's been a blast here at the ASCH meeting in a sort of sleep-deprived way. Yesterday after Pierre Rainville's keynote, I spent 2 hours with him (and David Spiegel of Stanford) in my room doing Dr. Rainville’s video interview and talking about his perspective that hypnosis is the humanistic connection between neuroscience and the study of subjective experience, something that the Cognitive Behavioral perspective misses. Dr. Rainville (University of Montreal) filmed a short "hello" to the Saybrook Hypnosis, Biofeedback, and Cognitive Neuroscience students, responding to the question, “Why should a student in Mind-Body Medicine study __________?” Dr. Rainville is a great guy, who researches everything from brain mechanisms in hypnosis to pain perception in Zen meditators.
