At least a dozen of us raised our hands to comment about our own experiences of uncanny experiences in working with patients with psychosis. Indeed a beginning clinician should be prepared to be known in surprising ways… While I don’t have the wherewithal currently to enter into a discussion about how psychosis and the uncanny might be related (but I would love to do that later!), I did find this really cool slideshow on Freud’s Sense of the Uncanny Dr. Rob McMinn here.
OK, I gotta pay attention now to the rest of the talk…
