A psychodynamic view of male homosexuality : oedipal and pre-oedipal

Wilson, Marianne January 1987 (has links)
Bibliography: leaves 50-54. / For many years psychodynamically oriented research into homosexuality has been a topic for controversy. The "gay" community as well as many more sociologically oriented researchers see any investigation of the psychodynamics of this orientation as implying pathology and therefore contributing to stigmatization of homosexuals. More recently, however, psychoanalytic writers have questioned traditional assumptions and pointed to a need to look at the diversity of homosexual adaptations. Of interest in a more recent perspective is Socarides' (1979) classification, distinguishing between pre-oedipal and oedipal types of homosexuals. This paper argues that while generalization about "homosexuals" is impossible, a psychodynamic approach is useful in looking at the meaning and adaptive function of the homosexual orientation in each individual client and thus understand it in relation to personality organization and behaviour. A brief summary of psychoanalytic theory of male homosexuality is given with an emphasis on Socarides' classification. Two case studies are presented in an attempt to illustrate the usefulness of a psychodynamic approach and of the oedipal - pre-oedipal distinction. It is suggested that this distinction be seen more as a continuum of varying levels of ego-functioning.

Talking pictures: a creative utilization of structural and aesthetic profiles from narrative music videos and television commercials in a non-spoken film text

Ings, Welby Unknown Date (has links)
This thesis is about storytelling. It is presented in three parts, a major output with two supporting components. The first and primary section is the short film. The second is an exhibition of images, props, and environments created for the work. The third is the exegesis. Situated as creative practice, the project tests and develops structural and aesthetic hypotheses in the creation of a non-spoken film text. These hypotheses are shaped by considerations from two areas.The first is design for narrative music video. An analysis of selected texts leads to a creative reconsideration of the role and profile of imagery, space, time, sound, enigma, closure, and narrative voice. The second area is typography. Reflecting on the anti-language, bogspeak, and the culture that has given rise to its development, the thesis develops inaudible typographical voices that operate as narrative contributions to the film.These two areas of consideration support a unique way of telling stories. This is significant because emerging uses of short film now take these texts beyond the theatre. They are marketed as commercially available stories in their own right. As distribution companies are formatting them on DVDs, viewers are seeing these stories not once, but many times. It is useful therefore, for the design of such texts to consider alternative methods of narration that might work to preserve the durability and complexity of their stories as they unravel over repeated screenings.

(Re)existindo à homofobia : narrativas de histórias de vida de cis-homens gays no Município de Cascavel-PR /

Santos, Ronaldo Adriano Alves dos. January 2019 (has links)
Orientador: Fernando Silva Teixeira Filho / Banca: Angela Aparecida Donini / Banca: Leonardo Lemos de Souza / Resumo: No presente trabalho, tenho o objetivo de apresentar um percurso narrativo através das experiências e histórias vividas e compartilhadas por cis-homens gays que assumem e/ou vivenciam suas homossexualidades no município de Cascavel-PR. Nesse percurso, pretendo discutir as experiências e os impactos das diferentes manifestações da homofobia em suas intersecções e tensionamentos com as idiossincrasias que marcam o enredo de cada uma das histórias dos participantes da pesquisa. Para tanto, adoto como referencial teórico os estudos de gênero e feministas que me possibilitam pensar as homossexualidades e a própria vivência da homofobia como fenômenos plurais impossíveis de serem submetidos a categorias universalizantes e essencialistas. Nesse sentido, busco discutir e apresentar a homofobia enquanto um conceito "guarda-chuva". Uma categoria política, conceitual e analítica que possibilita traduzir o cotidiano de violências, mais ou menos explícitas, que constituem e afetam todas as pessoas, e especialmente as pessoas LGBT, margeando e (de)limitando as formas de nos relacionarmos social, política, afetiva e sexualmente. Reconhecendo o caráter localizado, contextualizado, (de)limitado e parcial desse empreendimento de pesquisa e visando alcançar os objetivos traçados adoto como "método-processo de investigação" as narrativas de histórias de vida de seis cis-homens gays, dentre os quais me incluo. Por meio dessa pista metodológica, pude estabelecer uma necessária e indissociável... (Resumo completo, clicar acesso eletrônico abaixo) / Abstract: This dissertation aims to present a narrative pathway through experiences and stories lived and shared by cisgender gay men that assume and/or live their homosexuality in Cascavel city, Paraná state. In this pathway, I intend to discuss experiences and impacts from the different homophobia manifestations in their intersections and tensions with idiosyncrasies that are remarkable on the story of each participant of this research. For this purpose, I adopt as a theorical reference gender and feminist studies, which allow me to consider homosexualities and the homophobia experience itself as plural phenomena, that are impossible to be submitted to universalising, essentialist and static categories. Therefore, I aim to discuss and present homophobia as an "umbrella" concept, a political, conceptual and analytical category, that allows to render the daily violence, explicit or not, that constitutes and affect all the people, especially LGBT ones, creating margins and delimitating the social, aesthetic, political, affective and sexual ways to relate to each other. Recognizing the localized, (de)limited, contextualized and partial character of this research, I adopted as an "investigation method-process" the life stories narratives of six cisgender gay men, in which I include myself. The choice of this "method-process" was fundamental, since it made possible to be linked to and stablish an approximation with the research participants, both undeniable elements to accomplish the...

HIV transmission pattern among men who have sex with men in Shenzhen. / CUHK electronic theses & dissertations collection

January 2010 (has links)
Background A dramatic increasing trend of HIV prevalence among men who have sex with men (MSM) was observed in China from 2000. Most previous investigations were based on convenience sampling and none of them differentiated money boys (MB) from other MSMs. The objectives of this study was to determine the prevalence of HIV infection and its risk factors among MSMs in Shenzhen, China, using approximate probability sampling methods; and to interpret HIV transmission pattern among MSMs with both phylogenetical and epidemiological information. / Conclusions The prevalence of MV infection in Shenzhen MSMs was similar to the national rate in MSMs. HIV infection and related characteristics in Mf3s and other MSMs were different, indicating that a separate analysis was necessary. TLS could provide information on venue comparisons for venue-based MSMs and RDS could recruit more hidden subjects. Results from this study suggest that venue-specific intervention approaches should be developed and provided to different venues. / Results HIV prevalence was 5.5% among MSMs in Shenzhen. A significantly lower HIV infection was observed in MBs (4.5%) compared with other MSMs (7.0%). The HIV infection rate among MSMs was 5.7% by TLS and 4.6% by RDS, which were not significantly different. Factors related to HIV infection in MSMs included syphilis infection, occupation, sexual orientation, venue for recruitment and hometown HIV prevalence. HIV rate and social-behavioral characteristics were found to vary with venues, with significantly higher rates in family clubs, parks and saunas, than entertainment venue. Molecular phylogenetical analysis showed that genetic clusters were related to receptive anal intercourse, short stay in Shenzhen, early age of first sex, and high hometown HIV prevalence. Venue-specific transmission chains were observed in 60% of the subjects. / Subjects and Methods A total of 2143 MSMs were recruited in Shenzhen from 2008 to 2009, including 1651 persons from time-location sampling (TLS) and 492 from respondent-driven sampling (RDS). A separate recruitment of MBs and other MSMs was applied in TLS surveys and a mixed sample of MSMs was applied in RDS. All subjects were interviewed and had blood tests for HIV and syphilis. HIV positive samples were further used for phylogenetic analysis. / Zhao, Jin / Adviser: Mingliang He. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 73-02, Section: B, page: . / Thesis (Ph.D.)--Chinese University of Hong Kong, 2010. / Includes bibliographical references (leaves 161-177). / Electronic reproduction.
