Jonathan Wyatt
Jonathan Wyatt

Jonathan is Senior Lecturer in Counselling and Psychotherapy at The University of Edinburgh. Jonathan’s research examines the entanglement of self and other within and beyond the therapeutic encounter; and it troubles what we mean by ‘self’ and ‘other’. He undertakes this research through autoethnography (or, better, 'assemblage/ethnography'), collaborative writing as inquiry and, latterly, through bringing these together with dance/movement, performance and film. His work connects the dots between collaborative inquiry in the context of research and collaborative inquiry in the context of therapy, searching for – and doubting – the transformative resources in each.

He is the author and editor of several books, most recently co-edited, with Tony Adams, On (Writing) Families: Autoethnographies of Presence and Absence, Love and Loss (Sense, 2014).
