Eugenie Georgaca is Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology at the School of Psychology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Her interests lie in the field of critical and social constructionist approaches to mental health and psychotherapy. She is a member of the Discourse Unit. She has been working on alternative conceptions of psychosis, which would lead to more empowering ways of understanding and managing distressing experiences. She has written several papers on discourse analytic and more generally social constructionist approaches to mental distress. She also writes and teaches on human rights and distress as well as self-help movements in mental health. Another research area she has engaged in is the examination of psychotherapy as a practice that shapes contemporary subjectivity. She has written on discourse analytic, narrative analytic and dialogical ways of researching psychotherapy. She is also an activist in the radical mental health movement. Eugenie is a member of the Hellenic Observatory for Rights in the Field of Mental Health, an organization which advocates for the rights of persons with psychiatric diagnoses and promotes alternative perspectives and practices on distress in Greece. She is actively involved with Intervoice and the Hellenic Hearing Voices Network.
