About Leslie Chapman

I have been actively involved in the mental health field for over twenty five years, including over fifteen years working as a psychoanalytic practitioner within the Lacanian tradition. I also have a background in the social sciences, with a particular interest in psychopathology, trauma, ideology and discourse.  Over the last few years I have been exploring and developing a range of ideas concerning Lacan’s concept of the Real, and how this links to trauma, ideology and politics.
