Chris Bell

Chris Bell is a human sciences oriented psychologist working at the intersection of Cultural, Clinical, and Critical Psychology. His current research is a qualitative inquiry into personal experiences of change in Psychoanalysis/Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy from a combined cultural and critical perspective. He is particularly interested in the differing therapeutic contexts of PSA/PDT and CBT, and the opportunities provided by each psychotherapy for addressing experiences related to social inequalities. His most recent publication is, ‘Beyond the Specific Factors vs. Common Factors Debate: Lacan’s Four Discourses and a Renewed Contextual Model for Theorizing Psychotherapy Effects’ appearing in the journal Theory and Psychology.
