Rendering Unconscious is also a book! Rendering Unconscious: Psychoanalytic Perspectives, Politics & Poetry (2019) available from Trapart Books, the anthology includes a collection of psychoanalytic writing and contemporary poetry addressing current events, politics, the arts, culture and theory. The result is an eclectic, cross-disciplinary venture leading the reader through a variety of viewpoints traversing psychoanalytic theory and practice, mental health care in America and across the world, the grassroots efforts of clinicians and students to revitalize the discipline of psychoanalysis in particular and mental health treatment in general, and the dynamism of such discourse. The inclusion of poetry and creative writing sprinkled throughout the more stringent academic essays gives the reader a breath of fresh air, illuminating the expression that is possible through the synthesis of creative and intellectual domains.
Each episode of Rendering Unconscious podcast is accompanied by artwork and music reflective of the episode theme, as Dr. Sinclair is an artist, poet and psychoanalyst and believes in the essential nature of the process of creation.
