Essere omosessuali : omosessualità maschile e sviluppo psichico by Richard A Isay ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in Italian and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Isay propone una lettura piscoanalitica della genesi dell'omosessualità maschile, illustrando le sue tesi con esempi tratti da 20 anni di lavoro con una quarantina di pazienti gay. L'omosessualità è costituzionale come l'eterosessualità, "come tutte le forme d'amore" sostiene lo psicoanalista nord americano, si tratta di "un desiderio intenso per un attaccamento perduto; questo desiderio per i gay è generalmente per il padre" e ha principalmente a che fare con la rimozione di un desiderio erotico nei suoi confronti. In un autentico sforzo didattico, il libro racconta la formazione e lo sviluppo dell'identità e delle relazioni omosessuali in una visione non patologizzante ed espone le componenti e le tappe dello "sviluppo normale del gay". Isay tenta una vera e propria riconciliazione della psicoanalisi con l'omosessualità e in qualche modo ne fa un mea culpa. L'autore espone ciò che dovrebbe essere alla base di un lavoro psicoanalitico con un paziente gay: il coming out e il raggiungimento di un buon livello di autostima, una delle premesse fondamentali alla costruzione di legami sentimentali significativi. Scritto all'inizio dell'epidemia, il libro si sofferma sulle interferenze che ha avuto la diffusione dell'Aids sullo sviluppo delle persone omosessuali e sul profondo effetto psicologico dell'epidemia anche su gay non malati.

Etre homosexuel by Richard A Isay ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
S'inscrivant en faux contre les théories psychanalytiques "traditionnelles" affirmant une origine psychopathologique de l'homosexualité, l'auteur nous propose d'en inverser le sens. Ainsi, mère abusive et père absent ne sauraient être identifiés à des facteurs de causalité mais devraient, au contraire, être interprétés comme des réactions à l'attitude d'un enfant "constitutionnellement" homosexuel. Du côté du père, il y aurait prise de distance vis-à-vis d'une trop grande gentillesse du fils; de la part de la mère, au contraire, une quête érotique commune tisserait des liens inhabituellement intimes ... Est-il nécessaire d'emprunter pareils détours pour, finalement, proposer aux gays un parcours d'intégration, d'estime de soi et d'amour des autres? Parcours qui, certes, n'est pas forcément banal et aisé. Mais le rendra-t-on plus attractif ou plus acceptable en l'enrobant du conformisme normalisateur que croît devoir prôner Richard A. Islay? Plaidoyer pour un bonheur aseptisé sur fond de militantisme communautariste? C'est en tout cas l'impression que donnent certains passages de ce livre ancré dans la réalité nord-américaine. Celle-ci est parfois intraduisible pour le lecteur européen. Le chapitre consacré au sida renforce le malaise, en particulier quand il y est question des conséquences de la maladie sur le psychisme des "homosexuels sains" (sic) ou quand l'homophobie induite par l'épidémie est mise en exergue alors qu'il est à peine pris note des effets intégratifs de l'approche solidaire et antidiscriminatoire retenue par la plupart des pays occidentaux. Roger Charbonney (juin 1997)
