Dr Nini Fang (DPsych(Edin), MBACP(Accred), FHEA)

Lecturer

Background

Nini spent her doctoral years looking into the intrapsychic phenomenon of melancholia (depression) in relation to identity and loss through psychoanalytic theorisation.  As a psychoanalytic practitioner (accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, BACP), she has authored and published several research articles drawing on clinical practice and theoretical reflections in international, specialist journals within the field. Her doctoral thesis opened her up to new dimensions of questioning towards situating the individual psychic processes within the social world. Since the completion of her doctoral studies in 2016, she has been fulfilling her research interests in psychoanalytically-informed psychosocial studies and has authored several papers foregrounding psychosocial investigations in leading journals. 

Nini is a research-active member of the Association for Psychosocial Studies (APS) and part of the Psychosocial Study Group at the British Sociological Association (BSA). Nini is also the convener of Psychosocial Study Group in Scotland housed under the APS.
