    Occupational distress in nursing: A psychoanalytic reading of the literature.Alicia M. Evans, David A. Pereira & Judith M. Parker - 2008 - Nursing Philosophy 9 (3):195-204.
    Abstract Occupational stress in nursing has attracted considerable attention as a focus for research and as a consequence multiple objects of nurses' stress, or 'stressors', have been identified. This paper puts into question the dominant conceptual and methodological approach to occupational stress in nursing research by both foregrounding the notion of anxiety and juxtaposing it with the notion of 'stress'. It is argued that the notion of 'stress' and the domination of the questionnaire have produced a narrow reading of the (...)

    Discourses of anxiety and transference in nursing practice: the subject of knowledge.Alicia M. Evans, David A. Pereira & Judith M. Parker - 2009 - Nursing Inquiry 16 (3):251-260.
    The nurses’ relationship to knowledge has been theorised in a variety of different ways, not the least being in relation to medical dominance.

They argue that the nurse’s subjection to the knowledge of the other health professional, inclusive of the doctor, can be a transference arising in the context of anxiety for the nurse. Grasped by anxiety, the nurse (...)

    Discourses of anxiety in nursing practice: a psychoanalytic case study of the change‐of‐shift handover ritual.Alicia M. Evans, David A. Pereira & Judith M. Parker - 2008 - Nursing Inquiry 15 (1):40-48.
    This paper reports on the findings of a study that considered how anxiety might function to organise nurses’ practice. With reference to psychoanalytic theory this paper analyses field notes taken during a series of nursing change‐of‐shift handovers. The handover practices analysed met all the criteria for a ritual, as understood in psychoanalytic theory, and functioned to alleviate anxiety in the short term while symbolically expressing a forbidden and unknown knowledge. We argue that the handover ritual contained certain prohibitions, yet allowed (...)
