Bio

Ricardo Ainslie is a practicing psychoanalyst who also conducts psychoanalytic ethnography as part of his academic research. He has worked in communities ravaged by hate crimes, ethnic conflict, and profound social transformation, as well as communities in Mexico visited by drug violence and other crime.

The hallmark of his approach is deep, extended engagements with people in these communities as he explores the individual and collective impact of distressing and sometimes traumatic events through a psychoanalytic lens. In this OSPS seminar, he will use vignettes from his work to highlight ethical questions and challenges that he has encountered while working outside of his consulting room.
