“Preoccupations about difference in the form of ethnicity, race or racism and their lived experience are always present in subtle ways in the privacy of our daily thoughts and feelings, imagination and dreams. Our clinical encounters are no exception but they need close and sensitive scrutiny to capture the nuances of what is being grappled with and communicated by our patients and to enable clinicians to respond with affective understanding of the unconscious processes present.”

Narendra Keval, author of Racist States of Mind: Understanding the Perversion of Curiosity and Concern, qualified as a clinical psychologist and trained as an adult and adolescent psychotherapist at the Tavistock Clinic, London. He also worked as a specialist in psychoanalytic psychotherapy in a range of outpatient settings, working in particular with patients suffering from complex personality disorders. He has been a clinical supervisor, trainer, and visiting senior lecturer at various universities and training institutes both in the UK and South Africa, and a consultant to staff teams in a range of organisations in the private and public sector on issues such as trauma and suicidal risk.

From 2006-08 he was involved in the psychodynamic teaching on the clinical psychology training program at University of Cape Town and University of Western Cape, South Africa. He has also been a guest member and clinical supervisor in the Cape Town Society for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy; clinical director and consultant psychotherapist on the Doctoral Training Program in Clinical Psychology at the University of East Anglia; and senior lecturer at the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies at University of Essex. He is currently in full time private practice in London.
