In this book, Dana Birksted-Breen and Sara Flanders of the British Psychoanalytical Society, and Alain Gibeault of the Paris Psychoanalytical Society provide an overview of how French psychoanalysis has developed since Lacan. Focusing primarily on the work of psychoanalysts from the French Psychoanalytical Association and from the Paris Psychoanalytical Society, the two British psychoanalysts view the evolution of theory as it appears to them from the outside, while the French psychoanalyst explains and elaborates from inside the French psychoanalytic discourse.

This book builds a key clinical bridge between attachment theory and psychoanalysis, deploying Holmes' unique capacity to weld empirical evidence, psychoanalytic theory and consulting room experience into a coherent and convincing whole. Starting from the theory­ practice gap in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, the book demonstrates how attachment theory can help practitioners better understand what they intuitively do in the consulting room, how this benefits clients, and informs evidence-based practice.

In this book psychoanalyst Danielle Quinodoz highlights the value of old age and the fact that although many elderly people have suffered losses, either of their own good health or through bereavement, most have managed to retain the most important thing ­ their sense of self. Quinodoz argues that growing old provides us with the opportunity to learn more about ourselves and instead of facing it with dread, it should be celebrated.

Psychoanalytic Inquiry Book Series

Series Editor: Joseph D. Lichtenberg

The New Library of Psychoanalysis Teaching Series extends the aims and achievements of The New Library of Psychoanalysis to those studying psychoanalysis and related fields such as the social sciences, philosophy, literature and the arts. Each text provides a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to the central subjects in psychoanalysis, expressing even the most complex psychoanalytic concepts in clear and simple language whilst avoiding over simplification. Page 4

Home to foundational studies in self psychology, motivation theory, and intersubjectivity theory, the Psychoanalytic Inquiry Book Series continues to publish Post-Freudian books that integrate the psychoanalytic endeavor with recent empirical and clinical findings. Recent volumes in the series explore the theoretical and clinical implications of infancy research, developmental psychology, and systems theory, in particular. Page 12

Relational Perspectives Book Series

Series Editors: Lewis Aron and Adrienne Harris

The New Library of Psychoanalysis is published by Routledge in association with the Institute of Psychoanalysis, london. Its purpose is to facilitate a greater and more widespread appreciation of what psychoanalysis is really about and to provide a forum for increasing mutual understanding between psychoanalysts and those in other disciplines such as linguistics, literature, medicine, philosophy, psychology, and the social sciences. The series also aims to make some of the work of Continental and other non-English speaking analysts more readily available to English-speaking readers, and to increase the interchange of ideas between British and American analysts. Page 5

The Relational Perspectives Book Series publishes books that grow out of the relational tradition in contemporary psychoanalysis. Various tributaries ­ interpersonal psychoanalysis, object relations theory, self psychology, empirical infancy research, and certain currents of contemporary Freudian thought ­ flow into this tradition, which understands relational configurations between self and others, real and fantasied, as the primary subject of psychoanalytic investigation.

Psychoanalysis in a New Key Book Series

Series Editor: Donnel B. Stern

Makers of Modern Psychotherapy Series

Series Editor: Laurence Spurling

The "new key" in which volumes in this series are written is an intentional focus on innovative and unsettling clinical thinking that, while contributing to the Interpersonal and Relational psychoanalytic traditions, grows from sources not usually tapped in the psychoanalytic literature. The series encompasses ideas from other fields, such as trauma theory or literary criticism, and topics that are typically excluded from formal psychoanalytic discourse. Page 9

This series of introductory, critical texts looks at the work and thought of key contributors to the development of psychodynamic psychotherapy. Each book includes examples of how the theories examined affect clinical practice, biographical material and a complete bibliography of the contributor's work. Page 20

a wide, professional, national and international audience and will become essential reading for junior psychiatrists and nursing staff in particular." - CarineMinne, From the Preface The Psychotic Wavelength provides a psychoanalytical framework for clinicians to use in everyday general psychiatric practice and discusses how psychoanalytic ideas can be of great value when used in the treatment of seriously disturbed and disturbing psychiatric patients with psychoses, including both schizophrenia and the affective disorders. In this book, Richard Lucas suggests that when clinicians are faced with psychotic patients, the primary concern should be to make sense of what is happening during their breakdown. He refers to this as tuning into the psychotic wavelength, a process that allows clinicians to distinguish between, and appropriately address, the psychotic and non-psychotic parts of the personality. He argues that if clinicians can find and identify the psychotic wavelength, they can more effectively help the patient to come to terms with the realities of living with a psychotic disorder.

laid the basis for the innovations on both technique and theory that eventually led not only to changes in child analysis, but also to changes in the analysis of adults. Frank also uncovers the influence that this had on Klein's later theories of the paranoidschizoid and depressive positions, and on her understanding of psychotic anxieties. The first seven chapters in the book provide an explanation of the essence of Klein's approach to child psychoanalysis.

Doubt, Conviction and the Analytic Process

Selected Papers of Michael Feldman

MichaelFeldman,Training Analyst, British Psychoanalytical Society, UK Edited by BettyJoseph In this profound and subtle study, a practising psychoanalyst explores the dynamics of the interaction between the patient and the analyst. Michael Feldman draws the reader into experiencing how the clinical interaction unfolds within a session. In doing so, he develops some of the implications of the important pioneering work of such analysts as Klein, Rosenfeld and Joseph, showing in fine detail some of the ways in which the patient feels driven to communicate to the analyst, not only in order to be understood by him, but also in order to affect him. The author's detailed descriptions of the clinical process allow the reader to follow the actual process that enables the patient to get into contact with thoughts and feelings of which he or she was previously unconscious or only vaguely aware. Feldman makes the reader aware of the constant dynamic interaction between the patient and the analyst, each affecting the other. He shows how the analyst has to find a balance between doubt, uncertainty and confusion in himself and through this process may arrive at an understanding of what is happening, and by formulating this understanding the analyst can make a significant contribution to the process of psychic change.

ThomasH.ogden, Director, Center for the Advanced Study of the Psychoses, San Francisco, USA Rediscovering Psychoanalysis demonstrates how, by attending to one's own idiosyncratic ways of thinking, feeling, and responding to patients, the psychoanalyst can develop a "style" of his or her own, a way of practicing that is a living process originating, to a large degree, from the personality and experience of the analyst. This book approaches rediscovering psychoanalysis from four vantage points derived from the author's experience as a clinician, a supervisor, a teacher, and a reader of psychoanalysis. Thomas Ogden begins by presenting his experience of creating psychoanalysis freshly in the form of "talking-as-dreaming" in the analytic session; this is followed by an exploration of supervising and teaching psychoanalysis in a way that is distinctly one's own and unique to each supervisee and seminar group. Ogden goes on to rediscover psychoanalysis in this book as he continues his series of close readings of seminal analytic works. Here, he makes original theoretical contributions through the exploration, explication, and extension of the work of Bion, Loewald, and Searles.

Throughout this text, Perelberg draws together connections between time, mental space, and phantasy showing how time is constantly reshaped in the light of new events and experiences.

Time, Space and Phantasy

RosineJozefPerelberg,Training and Supervising Analyst, British Psychoanalytical Society, UK "Time, Space and Phantasy is a tour de force of psychoanalytic and anthropological scholarship and clinical acumen. I highly recommend it to all those who want to deepen their understanding of the theory and practice of psychoanalysis."

-DonaldCampbell,Past President of the British Psychoanalytical Society

Psychoanalysis Comparable and Incomparable describes the rationale and ongoing development of a six year programme of highly original meetings conducted by the European Psychoanalytic Federation Working Party on Comparative Clinical Methods. The project comprises over seventy cases discussed by more than five hundred experienced psychoanalysts over the course of sixty workshops. Authored by a group of leading European psychoanalysts, this book explores ways for psychoanalysts using different approaches to learn from each other when they present their work to fellow psychoanalysts, and provides tools for the individual practitioner to examine and improve his or her own approach. As described in detail in its pages, sticking to the task led to some surprising experiences, raising fundamental questions about the way clinical discussion and supervision are conducted in psychoanalysis.

Time, Space, and Phantasy examines the connections between time, space, phantasy and sexuality in clinical practice. It explores the subtleties of the encounter between patient and analyst, addressing how aspects of the patient's unconscious past are actualised in the present, producing new meanings that can be re-translated to the past.

Memory, Myth, and Seduction

Unconscious Fantasy and the Interpretive Process

JeanGeorgesSchimek Edited by DeborahBrowning,New York University, USA A practicing psychoanalyst and consummate Freud scholar, JeanGeorges Schimek sought to clarify Freud's concepts and theories and disentangle complexities borne of inconsistencies in his assumptions and expositions. This collection of published and unpublished papers, skillfully arranged and edited by Deborah Browning, reveals the development and evolution of Schimek's thinking on unconscious fantasy and the interpretive process.

As this book makes abundantly clear, with his own plain and subtle eloquence Stern is in the process of writing some of the most useful and inspiring psychoanalysis around."

Building on the innovative work of Unformulated Experience, Donnel B. Stern continues his exploration of the creation of meaning in clinical psychoanalysis with Partners in Thought. The chapters in this fascinating book are undergirded by the concept that the meanings which arise from unformulated experience are catalyzed by the states of relatedness in which the meanings emerge. Enactment, which Stern theorizes as the interpersonalization of dissociation, interrupts this crucial kind of exchange, and the eventual breach of enactments frees analyst and patient to resume it. Later chapters compare his views to the ideas of others, considering mentalization theory and the work of the Boston Change Process Study Group.

A Critical Evaluation of the Fundamentals of Psychoanalysis

From Classical to Contemporary Theory and Practice

MorrisN.Eagle,Derner Institute, Adelphi University, New York, USA The landscape of psychoanalysis has changed, at times dramatically, in the hundred or so years since Freud first began to think and write about it. Freudian theory and concepts have risen, fallen, and evolved in the hands and minds of analysts the world over, leaving us with a theoretically pluralistic (yet threateningly multifarious) diffusion of psychoanalytic viewpoints. To help make sense of it all, Morris Eagle sets out to critically reevaluate fundamental psychoanalytic concepts of theory and practice.

Heterosexual Masculinities rethinks a psychoanalytic tradition that has long thought masculinity as a sort of brittle defense against femininity, softness, and emotionality. Reflecting current trends in psychoanalytic thinking, this book seeks to understand heterosexual masculinity as fluid, multiple, and emergent. The contributors to this insightful volume take new perspectives on relations between men, men's positions as fathers in relation to their sons and daughters, the clinical encounter with heterosexual men, the social contexts of masculinity, and the multiplicity of heterosexual masculine subjectivities.

Sex Changes

Transformations in Society and Psychoanalysis


MarkJ.Blechner,William Alanson White Institute, New York, USA "With Sex Changes, Mark Blechner... blends an intimate, deeply moving biographical account with a theoretically sophisticated, scholarly, jargon-free narrative. All practicing therapists should read this book ­ who knows where it

will lead?" -LewisAron,Director, NYU Postdoctoral Program in

Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA

In the 1950s, ambitious women were often seen as psychopathological and were told by psychoanalysts that they had penis envy that needed treatment; today, a woman has campaigned for President of the United States. Mark Blechner has lived and worked through these startling changes in society, and Sex Changes collects papers he has written over the last 45 years on sex, gender, and sexuality. Interspersed with these papers are 10

The Consulting Room and Beyond is not a typical example of clinical writing in the field of psychoanalysis. Therese Ragen, pushing the boundaries of the genre, thoughtfully explores in a very immediate way the intersubjective nature of psychoanalysis, particularly looking at the role of the psychoanalyst's subjectivity, both how it influences and is influenced by the psychoanalytic relationship. The profound ways in which analyst and patient affect each other are captured as the author moves from a moment with a patient, to one of her own memories, to a dream, to a professional consultation and back to the session with the patient.

Coasting in the Countertransference

Conflicts of Self Interest between Analyst and Patient

IrwinHirsch, NYU Postdoctoral Program, USA "Hirsch is candid to a fault as he delves into several categories of analytic pitfalls. His observations will be challenging and thought-provoking for all readers. I came away with great respect for his analytic acumen and his capacity for relentless self-scrutiny... his book is full of clinical gems, and all analysts will benefit from reading it." -RichardM.Waugaman,Journal of the American Psychoanalytic



Making a Difference in Patients' Lives

Emotional Experience in the Therapeutic Setting

SandraBuechler,William Alanson White Institute, New York, USA "Sandra Buechler breaks the mold with Making a Difference in Patients' Lives. Aimed at teaching and inspiring those who do clinical work, Dr. Buechler has produced an instructive clinical book that is both practical and poetic." -KarenJ.Maroda,Medical College of

Wisconsin, USA

Within the title of her book, Making a Difference in Patients' Lives, Sandra Buechler echoes the hope of all clinicians. But, she counters, experience soon convinces most of us that insight, on its own, is often not powerful enough to have a significant impact on how a life is actually lived. Many clinicians and therapists have turned toward emotional experience, within and outside the treatment setting, as a resource. In clear, jargon-free prose that utilizes both clinical vignettes and excerpts from poetry, art, and literature, Buechler explores how the power to feel can become the power to change. Through an active empathic engagement with the patient and an awareness of the healing potential inherent in each of our fundamental emotions, the clinician can make a substantial difference in the patient's capacity to embrace life.

CoNTENTS: Introduction: Meaningfully Impacting Patients' Lives. Basic

Irwin Hirsch asserts that countertransference experience always has the potential to be used productively to benefit patients. However, he also observes that it is not unusual for analysts to `coast' in their countertransferences, and to not use this experience to help treatment progress toward reaching patients' and analysts' stated analytic goals. He believes that it is quite common that analysts who have some conscious awareness of a problematic aspect of countertransference participation, or of a mutual enactment, nevertheless do nothing to change that participation and to use their awareness to move the therapy forward. This `coasting' is emblematic of what Hirsch believes to be an ever present (and rarely addressed) conflict between analysts' self-interest and pursuit of comfortable equilibrium, and what may be ideal for patients' achievement of analytic aims.

Hope and Cure

Controversies, Challenges, and Clinical Findings in the Psychoanalytic Treatment of Adults Who Experienced Incest

Edited by DavidDietrich, and MarvinMargolis, both at Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute, Ann Arbor, USA In Hope and Cure, David Dietrich and Marvin Margolis assemble the detailed case studies of leading analysts in order to examine the efficacy of psychoanalytic treatment for victims of parent/ child incest. Each case is a qualitative report of psychoanalytic research that focuses on the treatment as a whole, not merely one or two aspects of it. However, what is perhaps the most important element of these studies is the rich post-analytic follow-up material that the contributors have obtained, which provides insights into the lives of the patients in the years subsequent to their treatment and hence the efficacy of the treatments themselves.

Brandchaft's Intersubjective Vision

BernardBrandchaft,Training and Supervising Analyst, Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Institute, USA, Shelley Doctors,and DorienneSorter,both at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, New York, USA Best known for his contributions to the development of contemporary intersubjectivity theory, Bernard Brandchaft has dedicated a career to the advancement of psychoanalytic theory and practice. Seemingly always one step ahead of the crowd, he moved beyond self psychology, constantly reforming his ideas about and investigations into the intersubjective nature of human experience. These papers, many of which are unpublished, articulate the evolution of his thinking along the road toward an emancipatory psychoanalysis. Moreover, commentary from Shelley Doctors and Dorienne Sorter ­ in addition to Bernard Brandchaft himself ­ examines the clinical implications of the theoretical shifts that he advocated and provides a contemporary context for the case material and conclusions each paper presents.

The Challenge of Individuality

New Perspectives in Psychoanalytic Contextualism

Edited by RogerFrie, Long Island University, USA, and WilliamJ.Coburn,Supervising and Training Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis, Los Angeles, USA In contemporary forms of psychoanalysis, the turn toward contextualism has permitted the development of new ways of thinking and practice that have dispensed with the notion of isolated individuality, and the recognition that all human experience is fundamentally immersed in the world makes the question of individuality seem confusing, even anachronistic. This volume of original essays seeks to give the issue of individuality its due, without losing sight of the importance of contextualized experience. Drawing on a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, the contributors address the tension that exists between the individual and the emergence of contextualism, providing unique insights into the role and place of individuality within the clinical setting and beyond.

From Psychoanalytic Narrative to Empirical Single Case Research revivifies the experimental potential of psychoanalysis by focusing a number of structured research methods on a single case study. Drs. Kächele, Schachter, and Thomä, in tandem with the Ulm Psychoanalytic Process Research Study Group, bring their formidable tools and knowledge to bear on Amalia X, a former patient of Dr. Thomä's, whose case history is welldocumented, preserved and available for formal empirical study. After providing an intensive review of the problematic aspects of clinical psychoanalytic research and an exegesis on the use of the case study itself, the specific case history of Amalia X, which dominates and centers the remainder of the book, is thoroughly examined.

Mentalization is the capacity to perceive and interpret behavior in terms of intentional mental states, to imagine what others are thinking and feeling, and is a concept that has taken the psychological and psychoanalytic worlds by storm. This collection of papers, carefully edited by Fredric Busch, clarifies its import as an essential perspective for understanding the human psyche and interpersonal relationships. Readers of this volume will find their clinical work to be more productive and their view of the human psyche broadened.

A Disturbance in the Field

Essays in TransferenceCountertransference Engagement

StevenH.Cooper, Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis, Brookline, USA Eventually, the rigorous work of psychoanalysis will arrive at an entanglement or, perhaps more often, a palpable rift in the interpersonal matrix ­ a disturbance in the relational field. How best to proceed when such tricky yet altogether common therapeutic situations arise, and what aspects of transference and countertransference should be explored in the service of continued, productive analysis? These are two of the questions that Steven Cooper unravels in this collection of essays on potentially thorny areas of the craft.

Uprooted Minds

Surviving the Politics of Terror in the Americas

NancyCaroHollander,California State University, USA In our post-9/11 environment, our sense of relative security and stability as privileged subjects living in the heart of Empire has been profoundly shaken. Hollander explores the forces that have brought us to this critical juncture, analyzing the role played by the neoliberal economic paradigm and conservative political agenda that emerged in the West over the past four decades with devastating consequences for the hemisphere's citizens. Narrative testimonies of progressive U.S. and Latin American psychoanalysts illuminate the psychological meanings of living under authoritarian political conditions and show how a psychoanalysis "beyond the couch" contributes to social struggles on behalf of human rights and redistributive justice.

First Do No Harm

The Paradoxical Encounters of Psychoanalysis, Warmaking, and Resistance

Edited by AdrienneHarris, New York University, USA, and StevenBotticelli, City University of New York, USA While psychoanalysis can be used as much for the justifications of warfare and propaganda as it can be for the defiance of and resistance to those same things, it is in the investigation of the motives and methods behind these choices that it proves its greatest strength and value. To wit, this edited collection presents published and unpublished chapters by analysts, writers, and activists who have been working at the front lines of psychic life and war from various vantage points. Set at a point of tension and contradiction, they illustrate the paradoxical relation of psychoanalysis as both a site of resistance and healing as well as a necessary aspect of warmaking, propaganda, and militarism.

As the title suggests, the unifying thread of these papers is the investigation of serious mental disturbance, often characterized by the presence of intrusive and invasive thoughts and fantasies that originate in a traumatic past but which can colonize and destroy the rational mind. The diverse papers are grouped into two related sections. Part I is comprised of papers with a clinical orientation. In Part II, applied psychoanalytic thinking is integrated with Williams' other professional passion, anthropology, in a paper that exemplifies generative thought through art, poetry, and tribal masks. Other papers in this section include a short essay that takes Freud-bashers to task, a reappraisal of the Rat Man, and a lively discussion of André Green's "central phobic position" in borderline thinking.

Good Enough Endings

Breaks, Interruptions, and Terminations from Contemporary Relational Perspectives

Edited by JillSalberg, NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA In the relational literature, the subject of termination ­ the ending of an analysis ­ has received scant attention, and traditional Freudian or ego-psychological criteria are not always enough to assess the readiness to terminate therapy in the coconstructed, intersubjective analytic relationship. Good Enough Endings seeks to remedy this gap, bringing together contributions from contemporary relational thinkers, while at the same time engaging with ideas from other psychoanalytic perspectives.

Invasive Objects

Minds Under Siege

PaulWilliams,Queen's University, Belfast, Ireland "In this remarkable book, Paul Williams assembles a wide-ranging array of essays that derive from his experience as a psychoanalyst, anthropologist, and writer... The breadth and depth of Williams' writing will ensure a wide readership of this unusual and important work." -MurrayJackson,Maudsley Hospital

and Institute of Psychiatry, London, UK

An influential part of the New York psychoanalytic scene for more than 50 years, Sabert "Sabe" Basescu is regarded as an outstanding analyst and a significant proponent of the integration of existentialism and phenomenology into psychoanalytic theory and practice. Existential themes serve as a central hub, a crossroads or meeting place for a variety of contemporary psychoanalytic approaches. Basescu was ahead of his time in anticipating these current trends ­ his teaching and writing were significant in the genesis of the relational turn as well as the ongoing development of the interpersonal tradition, thus it seems fitting that contemporary analysts remember him now. To that end, this book comprises a selection of seven of Sabe's articles, written across his career and exploring such issues as self-disclosure in the therapy session, the origins of creativity, and even his own anxieties as an analyst.

The Hero in the Mirror

From Fear to Fortitude

SueGrand,NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA "Wide-ranging and thought-provoking, The Hero in the Mirror is a book for our time... From the most personal to the most political, from childhood fantasies to psychoanalytic impasses, Grand redefines what it means to be heroic. This is a hopeful book." -Ghislaine

Boulanger,author, Wounded by Reality: Understanding and Treating Adult Onset Trauma

Utilizing examples from the clinically personal to the globally political, Sue Grand deconstructs the myth of the Hero ­ an externalized, larger-than-life personality who has the power to assuage our suffering while at the same time relieving us of the burdens of personal responsibility and social justice. In its place, she argues for the recognition of an ordinary hero, one who shares our fear and our flaws as well as our fortitude. As she grounds her thesis in clinical work, we meet combat veterans and children with imaginary saviors, the analyst who fails to discover her own personal hero and the patient with whom she reclaims it. But she also reaches out to the wider world, critiquing the Hero's relation to war, terrorism, state-sponsored terror and genocide.

CoNTENTS: The Hero in the Mirror. PartI:HeroesandWarriors. Combat Speaks I: Heroic Performance, Civilian Desire. Combat Speaks II: Grief and Tragic Memory. PartII:ChildhoodandtheHeroicImagination.

Intrepid Subjects: Rescuing Lost Generations. PartIV:ResistingDemonicHeroes. Restoring Reverence to Sacrificial Bodies: Terrorism, Counter-terrorism, Torture. Dignifying the Abject: Genocide and State Terror.

In 1995, Neil Altman did what few psychoanalysts did or even dared to do: He brought the theory and practice of psychoanalysis out of the cozy confines of the consulting room and into the realms of the marginalized, to the very individuals whom this theory and practice often overlooked. In doing so, he brought together psychoanalytic and social theory, and examined how divisions of race, class and culture reflect and influence splits in the developing self. Much like the original, this second edition of The Analyst in the Inner City opens up with updated, detailed clinical vignettes and case presentations, which illustrate the challenges of working within this clinical milieu.

Ecrits is his most important work, bringing together twenty-seven articles and lectures originally published between 1936 and 1966. Following its first publication in 1966, the book gained Lacan international attention and exercised a powerful influence on contemporary intellectual life.

As Bowlby himself points out in his introduction to this seminal childcare book, to be a successful parent means a lot of very hard work. Giving time and attention to children means sacrificing other interests and activities, but for many people today these are unwelcome truths. Bowlby's work showed that the early interactions between infant and caregiver have a profound impact on an infant's social, emotional, and intellectual growth.

Past scholars have tried to classify psychoanalysis as an intrinsically positivist science, with varying degrees of success. Their critics have fared little better with narrow applications of postmodern thought, which focus on smaller areas within psychoanalysis and, as a result, neglect the evolution of the discipline as a whole. In an effort to provide a ground for current psychoanalytic thought, Mark Leffert creates an interreferential schema which balances the influences of postmodernism, complexity theory, and neuroscience as its key factors. Using the heterogeneity of postmodern thought as a starting point, he traces its impact on and implications for the development of the discipline, leading into the realm of complexity theory ­ which is relatively new to the psychoanalytic literature ­ and how it informs as well as constrains certain psychoanalytic assumptions. The book then turns to neuroscience, the "hard" scientific study of the complexities of the brain, and how recent research informs psychoanalytic theory and may shed light on aspects of memory, the conscious, and the unconscious.

Beyond Postmodernism

New Dimensions in Clinical Theory and Practice

Edited by RogerFrie, Long Island University, USA, and Donnaorange, Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, New York, USA Beyond Postmodernism identifies ways in which psychoanalysis has moved beyond the postmodern debate and discusses how this can be applied to contemporary practice. Roger Frie and Donna Orange bring together many of the leading authorities on psychoanalytic theory and practice to provide a broad scope of psychoanalytic viewpoints and perspectives on the growing interdisciplinary discourse between psychoanalysis, continental philosophy, social theory and philosophy of mind. Beyond Postmodernism: New Dimensions in Clinical Theory and Practice provides a fresh perspective on the relationship between psychoanalysis and postmodernism and raises new issues for the future.

CoNTENTS: Frie, Introduction: Coherence or Fragmentation? Modernism,

Thinking for Clinicians provides analysts of all orientations with the tools and context for working critically within psychoanalytic theory and practice. It does this through detailed chapters on some of the philosophers whose work is especially relevant for contemporary theory and clinical writing: Emmanuel Levinas, Martin Buber, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and Hans-Georg Gadamer. Orange presents the historical background for their ideas, along with clinical vignettes to help contextualize their theories, further grounding them in real-world experience.

Sacral Revolutions

Reflecting on the Work of Andrew Samuels ­ Cutting Edges in Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis

Edited by GottfriedHeuer, in private practice, West London, UK Sacral Revolutions is a unique project reflecting the contribution that Andrew Samuels has made to the general field of psychoanalysis and Jungian analysis in both clinical and academic contexts. Gottfried Heuer has brought together an international array of authors ­ friends and colleagues of Samuels ­ to honour his 60th Birthday. As a result, the collection provides a creative and cutting-edge overview of a fragmented field. The chapters demonstrate the profound sense of social responsibility of these analysts and academics whose concerns include the mysteries and hidden meanings in social and political life.

Containing States of Mind

Exploring Bion's `Container Model' in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

DuncanCartwright,University of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa "Bion's concept of the "container and the contained" has become one of his most well-known and used ideas ­ to the point that it has become taken for granted ("saturated," in Bion's terms). Duncan Cartwright has given this concept new life, expands upon it, and integrates it with much of Bion's other work in innovative ways. The results are exciting. The author has expertly balanced profound and extensive scholarship with sound reasoning and with a reader-friendly style. A number of works on Bion have been published recently; this one is in my opinion one of the finest and most useful." -JamesGrotstein,training and

The Mystery of Analytical Work

Weavings From Jung and Bion

BarbaraStevensSullivan, in private practice, California and C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, USA "Sullivan explores the theories of two difficult analysts, Jung and Bion, explaining their ideas clearly and demonstrating how each of their perspectives enriches the other's. Her detailed clinical material makes her thinking come alive and should help clinicians of any perspective to deepen their work."

-MarjorieNathanson,Past President of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, and member of the IAAP Executive Committee

Wilfred Bion's insights into the analytic process have had a profound influence on how psychoanalysts and psychotherapists understand emotional change and pathological mental states. One of his most influential ideas concerns the notion that we need the minds of others to develop our own emotional and cognitive capacities. In Containing States of Mind Duncan Cartwright explores and develops some of the implications that Bion's container model has on clinical practice. He argues that the analyst or therapist best fulfils a containing function by negotiating irreconcilable internal tensions between his role as `dream object' and `proper object'. The container model is also used to illustrate different `modes of interaction' in the analytic field, the nature of particular pathological states and some of the key dilemmas faced in attempting to make unbearable mental states more bearable. As well as addressing key theoretical problems, Containing States of Mind is a clinical text that renders complex ideas accessible and useful for psychotherapeutic and analytic practice.

This book provides an exploration of the clinical practice of psychoanalysis and analytical psychology. It explores the ways psychoanalysts and other clinicians are taught to evade direct emotional connections with their patients. Sullivan, suggesting that relatedness is the basis of emotional health, examines the universal struggle between socially oriented energies that struggle toward truth and narcissistic impulses that push us to take refuge in lies. She maintains that, rather than making interpretations, it is the clinician's capacity to bring relatedness to the clinical encounter which is the crucial factor. Examining the work of both Jung and Bion, Sullivan draws on the overlap between their ideas on the psyche and the nature

Mirroring and Attunement offers a new approach to psychoanalysis, artistic creation and religion. Viewing these activities from a broadly relational perspective, Wright proposes that each provides a medium for creative dialogue: the artist discovers himself within his self-created forms, the religious person through an internal dialogue with `God', and the analysand through the inter-subjective medium of the analysis. Building on the work of Winnicott, Stern and Langer, the author argues that each activity is rooted in the infant's preverbal relationship with the mother who `holds' the emerging self in an ambience of mirroring forms, thereby providing a `place' for the self to `be'. He suggests that the need for subjective reflection persists throughout the life cycle and that psychoanalysis, artistic creation and religion can be seen as cultural attempts to provide the self with resonant containment.

The Work of Psychoanalysts in the Public Health Sector

Edited by MaryBrownescombeHeller, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalyst, NHS, UK, and Sheena Pollet,Consultant Psychiatrist, NHS Trust, and in private practice, UK This book provides a comprehensive insight into the ways in which psychoanalysts think and work. Mary Brownescombe Heller and Sheena Pollet bring together internationally known contributors trained at the Institute of Psychoanalysis to explore the broad range of clinical work, thinking, and teaching undertaken with children, families, adults and staff by psychoanalysts in the UK public health sector. Divided into four sections, The Work of Psychoanalysts in the Public Health Sector covers: · clinical work with parents and young children · clinical work with adults and their families · analytic thinking in health service practice · analytic support for health service staff. Experienced psychoanalysts discuss work with various client groups including parents with babies, children, adolescents who self harm, and adults with serious mental health conditions and psychosis. The book also explores how psychoanalyticallyinformed work can be used alongside other treatment methods, and how health service staff can best be trained and supported. The Work of Psychoanalysts in the Public Health Sector offers the reader a broad perspective and a clear understanding of the various analytical concepts used in clinical practice. It will be invaluable reading for anyone interested in, or already using psychoanalytic ideas and techniques in the health sector, as well as students in training.

Perversion and Modern Japan

Psychoanalysis, Literature, Culture

Edited by NinaCornyetz,and J.KeithVincent,both at New York University, USA How did nerves and neuroses take the place of ghosts and spirits in Meiji Japan? How does Natsume Soseki's canonical novel Kokoro pervert the Freudian teleology of sexual development? What do we make of Jacques Lacan's infamous claim that because of the nature of their language the Japanese people were unanalyzable? And how are we to understand the re-awakening of collective memory occasioned by the sudden appearance of a Japanese Imperial soldier stumbling out of the jungle in Guam in 1972? In addressing these and other questions, the essays collected here theorize the relation of unconscious fantasy and perversion to discourses of nation, identity, and history in Japan. Against a tradition that claims that Freud's method, as a Western discourse, makes a bad `fit'with Japan, this volume argues that psychoanalytic reading offers valuable insights into the ways in which `Japan' itself continues to function as a psychic object. 24

Object Relations, Work and the Self

DavidP.Levine,University of Denver, USA In this book, David P. Levine applies psychoanalytic object relations theory to understanding work motivation and the meaning of work. Drawing on the writings of authors such as Donald Winnicott, Otto Kernberg and Melanie Klein, he explores three factors central to our effort to understand work: guilt, greed and the self. Special attention is paid to the factors that determine the individual's emotional capacity to do work that engages the self and its creative potential and to the related matter of impairment in that capacity. Object Relations, Work and the Self will be of interest to psychoanalysts and organizational consultants as well as anyone concerned with what determines the quality of life in the workplace.

This book provides an in-depth introduction to existential psychotherapy. Presenting a philosophical alternative to other forms of psychological treatment, it emphasises the problems of living and the human dilemmas that are often neglected by practitioners who focus on personal psychopathology. Emmy van Deurzen defines the philosophical ideas that underpin existential psychotherapy, summarising the contributions made by Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger and Sartre among others. She proposes a systemic and practical method of existential psychotherapy, illustrated with detailed case material. This expanded and updated second edition includes new chapters on the contributions of Max Scheler, Albert Camus, Gabriel Marcel and Emmanuel Levinas, as well as on feminist contributors such as Simone de Beauvoir and Hannah Arendt amongst others. In addition a new extended case discussion illustrates the approach in practice.

This lucid and incisive book can be utilized at different levels of complexity. Not only are the contents of the book enriching, but its passion for the frontiers of research will enhance

the creativity of readers." -AntoninoFerro,Italian Psychoanalytic

Society, Pavia, Italy

Psychoanalytic theory frequently explains psychopathology from the perspective of either inadequate early care or as the result of environmental factors. In this book the author suggests that poor mental health can be a result of our incapacity to respond to internal and external stimuli, and indicates that spontaneity is essential in the development of many aspects of the self. Spontaneity presents an original approach to issues of agency, spontaneity and creativity in psychoanalysis by exploring issues including active internalisation, paradox, forgiveness, responsibility, empathy and self de-creation.

Towards an Attachment-Informed Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

JeremyHolmes,University of Exeter, UK This book builds a key clinical bridge between attachment theory and psychoanalysis, deploying Holmes' unique capacity to weld empirical evidence, psychoanalytic theory and consulting room experience into a coherent and convincing whole. Starting from the theory­ practice gap in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, the book demonstrates how attachment theory can help practitioners better understand what they intuitively do in the consulting room, how this benefits clients, and informs evidence-based practice. Divided into two sections, theory and practice, Exploring in Security discusses the concept of mentalising and considers three components of effective therapy ­ the therapeutic relationship, meaning making and change promotion ­ from both attachment and psychoanalytic perspectives. The second part of the book applies attachment theory to a number of clinical situations including: · working with borderline clients · suicide and deliberate self-harm · sex and sexuality · dreams · ending therapy. Throughout the book theoretical discussion is vividly illustrated with clinical material, personal experience and examples from literature and film, making this an accessible yet authoritative text for psychotherapy practitioners at all levels, including psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, mental health nurses and counsellors.

This book presents an interdisciplinary discussion between researchers and clinicians about trauma in the relationship between infants and their parents. It makes an innovative contribution to the field of infant mental health in bringing together previously separated paradigms of relational trauma from psychoanalysis, attachment and the neurosciences. With contributions from a range of experts, areas of discussion include: · intergenerational transmission of relational trauma and earliest intervention · the nature of the traumatising encounter between parent and infant · the therapeutic possibilities of parent-infant psychotherapy in changing the trajectory of transmitted trauma · training and supporting professionals working with traumatised parents and infants. Relational Trauma in Infancy will be of particular interest to trainee and qualified child and adult psychotherapists, clinical psychologists, child and adult psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, health care professionals and social workers.

Independent Psychoanalytic Approaches with Children and Adolescents

Edited by AnnHorne,Senior Member of the British Association of Psychotherapists, UK, and Monica Lanyado, Training Supervisor at the British Association of Psychotherapists, UK "This book is a welcome addition to the clinical accounts of analytic work with children, young people and their families.

The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy

Psychoanalytic Approaches

Second Edition



Edited by MonicaLanyado, training supervisor at the British Association of Psychotherapists, UK, and AnnHorne,Senior member of the British Association of Psychotherapists, UK "This revised edition is a thoroughly impressive and impressively thorough achievement. The writing, the level of specialism and expertise evidenced, and the rich variety of clinical and research illustrations make it also a great read." -AnneAlvarez,

Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist

Winnicott's description of "doing something else" or "working as a psychoanalyst" when not engaged in the actual analysis of his patients resonates with the child psychotherapist today. Individual psychotherapy is certainly a valuable part of the work but much of the time the CPT is "doing something appropriate to the occasion". Some of this time is spent in assessment work ­ for therapy, for the multi-professional team and for other agencies ­ and some in consultation to colleagues and other professional staff or in a combination of the two. Drawing from the Independent tradition in psychoanalysis, Through Assessment to Consultation explores the application of psychoanalytic thinking to this daily work, reflecting on what is actually done and why.

CoNTENTS: Horne, Lanyado, Introduction: `Appropriate to the Occasion.'

The Journey of Child Development

Selected Papers of Joseph D. Noshpitz

Edited by BruceSklarew,in private practice, Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA, and MyraSklarew, American University, Washington, D.C., USA Collected here are a number of previously unpublished papers which demonstrate the breadth of Joseph Noshpitz's interests and the depth to which he conceived the psychic life of the child. Preceded by brief introductions which help to contemporize and contextualize the papers for the modern reader, the subject matter boasts a wide range: from ethics in child development, to feminine gender issues and the notion of the tomboy, to selfdestructiveness and negative ego-ideals in adolescents. More applied papers delve into the formative appeal of literature directed at young girls, the developmental lessons of ninja turtles, and the creative motivations behind art, music, dance, and poetry. Running throughout these papers is an unyielding advocacy for the mental health and positive development of the child as a member of society at large, perhaps nowhere more evinced than in the somewhat controversial proposal for stricter interventions in the family unit.

Child Psychotherapy and Research brings together some of the most exciting and innovative research activity taking place within psychoanalytic child psychotherapy today. Drawing on the expertise of an international range of contributors, this book describes work at the cutting edge of research in psychoanalytic child psychotherapy and related areas. It presents many of the emerging findings while also illustrating a whole range of methodologies ­ both quantitative and qualitative ­ that have been developed to investigate this field. The book examines the historical and philosophical background of child psychotherapy research and shows how research illuminates different clinical phenomena, the processes of psychotherapy, its evaluation and outcome.

Primitive Mental States

A Psychoanalytic Exploration of the Origins of Meaning

Edited by JaneVanBuren,in private practice, California, USA, and Shelley Alhanati, Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California, USA "This is an exceptional book... the scholarship is outstanding and the integrity of the authors and their work is evident throughout." - ThomasH.ogden,Director, Centre for the Advanced Study of the

Psychoses; Personal and Supervising Analyst, Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California, USA

Traditional psychoanalysis relies on the presence of certain meaning-making capacities in the patient for its effectiveness. Primitive Mental States examines how particular capacities including those for symbolising, fantasising, dreaming, experiencing and finding meanings in those experiences, can be taken for granted. Many of us lack these capacities in certain dimensions of our minds making traditional psychoanalysis ineffective. In this book, international contributors are brought together to consider a radical evolution in contemporary psychoanalytic theory developed from a combination of ultrasound studies, infant analysis, and observation of mothers and babies. These

findings demonstrate how much mental life exists even before birth and considers unevolved, unborn and barely born aspects of the self such as the birth of emotion and the birth of alpha functioning. Topics covered include: · prenatal imprints on the mind and body · difficult to treat patients · non-verbal, non-symbolic, disembodied states of being · early relational and attachment trauma. Illustrated throughout with original data and extensive clinical discussions from some of the biggest names in the field, Primitive Mental States will be a useful resource for students and seasoned analysts alike.

Growing Old

A Journey of Self-Discovery



DanielleQuinodoz,Psychoanalyst, Geneva, Switzerland Translated by DavidAlcorn People react very differently to the process of ageing. Some people shy away from old age for as long as they can and eventually spend it reflecting on times when they were physically and mentally stronger and more independent. For others old age is embraced as a new adventure and something to look forward to. In this book psychoanalyst Danielle Quinodoz highlights the value of old age and the fact that although many elderly people have suffered losses, either of their own good health or through bereavement, most have managed to retain the most important thing ­ their sense of self. Quinodoz argues that growing old provides us with the opportunity to learn more about ourselves and instead of facing it with dread, it should be celebrated. Throughout Growing Old the author draws on both her clinical experience of working with the elderly, and her own personal experience of growing old. This makes it an interesting read for both practising psychoanalysts, and those who wish to gain a greater insight of the natural progression into later life.

The First Year and the Rest of Your Life

Movement, Development, and Psychotherapeutic Change

FrancesLaBarre, Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, New York, USA, and RuellaFrank,Center for Somatic Studies, New York, USA Infants command a vast array of nonverbal cues and signals. This early life in motion is the root of later verbal expression, though its importance in the child's interpersonal development is often overlooked. Observation of these fundamental movements of the infant, in interaction with the parents, can reveal coconstructed experiences that might otherwise remain unelaborated. Using the technique of foundational movement analysis, it is possible to determine areas of tension between parent and baby that interfere with optimal development. Moreover, since early movement forms the basis of future communication, such analysis can shed light on patterns of interaction in psychotherapy with adults and couples as well. Numerous clinical vignettes and detailed case reports demonstrate how an understanding of nonverbal baby/parent cocreated dialogue can be usefully applied to the relationship of patient and therapist.

A dozen years later, the psychoanalytic community is more open to integrating perspectives, and the growth of analysts working with couples and families necessitates an update of the material presented in The Embedded Self. Similarly, the family therapy community has deepened its interest in individual dynamics within systemic patterning. From a new and revised perspective on the possibilities of integration, Gerson covers the latest research in neuroscience and the transmission of affect within intimate relationships, with a new chapter on attachment theory and emotionally focused therapy. Sections on narrative therapy and psychoanalytically-oriented family therapy are expanded as well.

The Gendered Unconscious

Can Gender Discourses Subvert Psychoanalysis?

LouiseGyler, in private practice, Sydney, Australia "Louise Gyler provides an excellently wellresearched, intelligently written, critical update on feminism and psychoanalysis. She systematically exposes the role of gender in the theories and clinical practice of influential psychoanalysts and explicates the gendered perspectives on psychoanalysis developed by leading feminist theorists. " -JanetSayers,University of Kent, UK Feminist interventions in psychoanalysis have often attempted either to subvert or re-frame the masculinist and phallocentric biases of Freud's psychoanalysis. This book investigates the nature of these interventions by comparing the status and treatment of women in two different psychoanalytic models: the Kleinian and the feminist psychoanalytic models. It argues that, in fact, these interventions have historically tended to reinforce such biases by collapsing the distinction between the gendered minds of individuals and theories of gender.

Utilizing rich clinical vignettes and elements of Lacanian theory, Patricia Gherovici demonstrates how the transgender discourse has both reoriented psychoanalytic practice and reframed debates about gender in American society at large. She traverses historical, theoretical, and clinical grounds to explore what has been termed the "democratizing of gender" ­ for what could be more democratic than the choice of one's own gender, now able to be changed on demand? Arguing for the depathologization of transgenderism, Please Select Your Gender aims to revise current notions of human sexuality in general. In doing so, it challenges the theory and practice of psychoanalysis with questions typically addressed only indirectly, but which are themselves transforming how analysis is done.

Selected Backlist

From CHRISTOPHER BOLLAS, Psychoanalyst, Member of the British Psychoanalytical Society, UK

"I very much enjoyed reading these books [referring to both companion volumes]. There is something in the form of Bollas's writing ­ in his character ­ that permeates these texts: a curiosity and passion for the unconscious life that never loses sight of its complexity. I wish that these books had existed while I was still in my training seminars, and I can only hope that they are going to be read both by students and experienced analysts over and over again." - AnnaSylvén,The Scandinavian Psychoanalytic Review

Moving from the fundamentals of the free associative technique, through an examination of how architecture and the built environment interact with individual and societal dream life, Bollas extends the work of psychoanalysis beyond relations with literature and culture to the actual objects which surround us. Throughout this engaging and accessible text, Bollas rejects the simplistic notion that mental life is unconsciously determined. Instead he provides a compelling study of how unconscious life is shaped by a diverse array of both internal and external factors.

The Infinite Question

ChristopherBollas In his latest book Christopher Bollas uses detailed studies of real clinical practice to illuminate a theory of psychoanalysis which privileges the human impulse to question. From earliest childhood to the end of our lives, we are driven by this impulse in its varying forms, and The Infinite Question illustrates how Freud's free associative method provides both patient and analyst with answers and, in turn, with an ongoing interplay of further questions. At the book's core are transcripts of real analytical sessions, accompanied by parallel commentaries which highlight key aspects of the free associative method in practice. These transcripts are contextualised by further discussion of the cases themselves, as well as a wider theoretical framework which places its emphasis on Freud's theory of the logic of sequence: by learning to listen to this free associative logic, Bollas argues, we can discover a richer and more complex unconscious voice than if we rely solely on Freud's theory of repressed ideas.

Bridging the Gap between Neuroscience, Psychoanalysis and Psychiatry

AviPeled,Shaar-Menashe Mental Health Centre, Israel NeuroAnalysis investigates using the neural network and neural computation models to bridge the divide between psychology, psychoanalysis, and neuroscience when diagnosing mental health disorders and prescribing treatment. Avi Peled builds on Freud's early attempts to explain the neural basis of mental health by introducing neural computation as a bridging science to explain psychiatric disorders. Peled describes the brain as a complex system of interconnected units and goes on to suggest that conscious experience, feelings, and mood are emergent properties arising from these complex organisations. This model describes mental health disorders in terms of perturbation to the optimal brain organisation, and demonstrates how particular disorders can be identified through a specific breakdown pattern of the brain's organisation.

Awakening our Faith in the Future

The Advent of Psychological Liberalism

PeterT.Dunlap, in private practice, California, USA "In this beautifully written and challenging book, Dunlap has evolved a practical path for the integration of emotion and thought in the service of social justice by demonstrating a wide range of inspiring `learning practices' that activate creative and progressive political energies." -AndrewSamuels,University of Essex, UK Awakening our Faith in the Future investigates the avenues for creating a new branch of psychology, a transformative political psychology. In the past, political psychology has focused directly on analysis and knowledge acquisition, rather than on interventions that transform self and culture. A transformative political psychology combines the best of traditional social science with the transformative intent of clinical psychology in order to create a new political culture. Peter T. Dunlap suggests that while liberals focus intently outside of themselves on changing the world, those with psychological interests focus much more internally on changing themselves.

Building Out into the Dark

Theory and Observation in Science and Psychoanalysis

RobertCaper, University of California at Los Angeles, USA In this book, Robert Caper provides the reader with an introduction to psychoanalysis focusing explicitly on whether psychoanalysis is part of the sciences, and if not, where it belongs. Many psychoanalysts, beginning with Freud, have considered their discipline a science. In this book, Caper examines this claim and investigates the relationship of theory to observation in both philosophy and the experimental sciences and explores how these observations differ from those made in psychoanalytic interpretation. Building Out into the Dark offers a thoughtful consideration of the nature of psychoanalytic knowledge and how it is gained.

Shame and Sexuality

Psychoanalysis and Visual Culture

Edited by ClairePajaczkowska, Middlesex University, London, UK, and IvanWard,Freud Museum, London, UK The experience of shame is a profound, painful and universal emotion with lasting effects on many aspects of public life and human culture. Rooted in childhood experience, linked to sexuality and the cultural norms which regulate the body and its pleasures, shame is uniquely human. Shame and Sexuality explores elements of shame in human psychology and the cultures of art, film, photography and textiles. This volume is divided into two distinct sections allowing the reader to compare and contrast the psychoanalytic and the cultural writings. Part I, Psychoanalysis, provides a psychoanalytic approach to shame, using clinical examples to explore the function of unconscious fantasies, the shame shield in child sexual abuse, and the puzzling manner in which shame attaches itself to sexuality. Part II, Visual Culture, is illustrated throughout with textual analysis; contributors explore shame and sexuality in art history, politics and contemporary visual culture, including the gendering of shame, shame and abjection, and the relationship between shame and shamelessness as a strategy of resistance. 33

A Guide to Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with Couples

SarahFelsUsher, in private practice, Toronto, Canada "This book is an important contribution that will help these clinicians develop the skills necessary to work with troubled marriages. Numerous clinical case presentations bring this work to life, clearly illustrating each phase of treatment." -LewisAron, Director,

NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA

Historically, the language and concepts within clinical theory have been steeped in linear assumptions and reductionist thinking. Because the essence of psychotherapy involves change, Psyche's Veil suggests that clinical practice is inherently a nonlinear affair. In this book Terry Marks-Tarlow provides therapists with new language, models and metaphors to narrow the divide between theory and practice, while bridging the gap between psychology and the sciences. By applying contemporary perspectives of chaos theory, complexity theory and fractal geometry to clinical practice, the author discards traditional conceptions of health based on ideals of regularity, set points and normative statistics in favour of models that emphasize unique moments, variability, and irregularity. Psyche's Veil further explores philosophical and spiritual implications of contemporary science for psychotherapy.

traditional field of psychoanalytic couple therapy, and explores therapeutic methods of working through the obstacles leading to true love. Becoming who we are is an inherently relational journey: we uncover our truest nature and become most authentically real through the difficult and fearful, yet transformative intersubjective crucibles of our intimate relationships. In this book, Judith Pickering draws comparisons between Bion's concept of becoming in O, and being in love. She searches for pathways that lead away from relational confusion towards the discovery of genuine transformational relationships, and works towards finding better ways of relating to one another.

Promises, Oaths, and Vows

On the Psychology of Promising

HerbertJ.Schlesinger,Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, USA "... The psychotherapist or psychoanalyst who spends an afternoon or evening with this slim volume will be richly rewarded. The clinical wisdom imparted in the pages will pay off in the reader's own practice. I promise." -Gleno.Gabbard,American Journal of


Considering that getting along in civil society is based on the expectation that (most) people will do what they say they will do, i.e., essentially live up to their explicit or implicit promises, it is amazing that so little scientific attention has been given to the act of promising. What makes it possible developmentally, cognitively, and emotionally to make a promise in the first place? And on the other hand, what compels one to keep a promise when there seems to be no personal advantage in doing so, and even when harm can be predicted? In Promises, Oaths, and Vows: On the Psychology of Promising, Herbert Schlesinger addresses these questions, drawing on the literature of moral development in children; the psychotherapy of a patient who regularly broke promises that were unnecessary in the first place; those who were regarded as "promising youngsters" who did not fulfill their "promise"; and those who feared making a promise, a commitment, or a threat.

Relating to SelfHarm and Suicide

Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Practice, Theory and Prevention

Edited by StephenBriggs,Tavistock Clinic, London, UK, and Alessandra Lemma,and WilliamCrouch, both at Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, UK "This book offers a complex and in-depth approach to coping with suicidal patients by understanding them better, helping them with effective psychoanalytical treatment and applying psychoanalytical ideas to identify protective factors in suicide prevention." -Nicholas

Temple,From the Preface

The Past in the Present brings together, for the first time, contemporary ideas from both the psychoanalytic and humanistic therapy traditions, looking at how trauma and enactments affect therapeutic practice. Enactments are often experienced as a crisis in therapy and are understood as symbolic interactions between the client and therapist, where personal issues of both parties become unconsciously entwined. This is arguably especially true if the client has undergone some form of trauma. This trauma becomes enacted in the therapy and becomes a turning point that significantly influences the course of therapy, sometimes with creative or even destructive effect. Using a wealth of clinical material throughout, the contributors show how therapists from different therapeutic orientations are thinking about and working with enactments in therapy.

Relating to Self-Harm and Suicide presents original studies and research from contemporary psychoanalysts, therapists and academics focusing on the psychoanalytic understanding of suicide and self-harm, and how this can be applied to clinical work and policy. This powerful critique of current thinking suggests that suicide and self-harm must be understood as having meaning within interpersonal and intrapsychic relationships, offering a new and more hopeful dimension for prevention and recovery.

Hughes offers a historical account of guilt from Freud through its development and elaboration in the unique perspective of Klein and the British School. It is a work of meticulous scholarship that underscores the originality of Klein's thought." -RonaldC.Naso,Psychologist ­ Psychoanalyst Guilt and Its Vicissitudes focuses on how Melanie Klein and her followers pursued and deepened Freud's project of explaining man's moral sense as a wholly natural phenomenon. With the introduction of the superego, Freud laid claim to the study of moral development as part of the psychoanalytic enterprise. He also reconceptualised guilt, thinking of it not only as conscious, but also unconscious. It was the unconscious sense of guilt that became a particular concern of the discipline he was founding. Hughes shows how Klein went on to provide a more consistent psychological account of moral development.

Relational Approaches in Gestalt Therapy

Edited by RichHycner,Couples and Individual Counseling Center, Solano Beach, California, USA, and LynneJacobs,Pacific Gestalt Institute, Los Angeles, USA Richard Hycner and Lynne Jacobs assemble an international group of Gestalt theorists and clinicians for an engaging and insightful investigation into the integration of relational approaches within Gestalt therapy. The book is divided thematically into three sections. The first section speculates on the history and development of relationality in terms of Gestalt therapy. Chapters that discuss the patient-therapist relationship comprise the second section, and include explorations into uncertainty in interpretation and understanding, attunement and optimal responsiveness, working with shame, and negotiating individuality and "betweenness."

The Secret Language of Intimacy

Releasing the Hidden Power in Couple Relationships

RobertG.Lee, in private practice, Boston, USA "Deepen your understanding of your patients, your partner, and your own process by giving yourself the wisdom of Robert Lee's The Secret Language of Intimacy. I've been learning from Robert for years; welcome to the group." -GordonWheeler,President and CEO, Esalen Institute, USA In The Secret Language of Intimacy, shame and its consequences are foregrounded as a major, if not the major, impediment to the healthy functioning in the relationships of couples. In the first part of the book, Robert Lee presents the "Secret Language of Intimacy Workshop," developed and presented for the first time at the 1998 Annual Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy. Lee not only describes how the hidden forces of shame and belonging regulate couple dynamics, but also how the workshop itself has facilitated the acceptance of these forces and promoted therapeutic resolution, utilizing clinical vignettes. The second half of the book is comprised of internationally contributed essays from leading names in the Gestalt perspective, each adding to and redefining the role of shame and belonging in the theory and practice of Gestalt couples therapy. Their conclusions, however, are just as insightful for purveyors of other psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapies as well.

CoCreating the Field

Intention and Practice in the Age of Complexity

Edited by DeborahUllman,coach, somatics-based therapist, and Gestalt trainer, Orleans, USA, and Gordon Wheeler,licensed clinical psychologist with over thirty years of practice, teaches and trains widely around the world "This dazzling anthology sets the direction and agenda for Gestalt therapy in the 21st century... It crackles with an urgency appropriate to the times while clearly articulating the cutting edge in Gestalt therapy."

-ArchieRoberts,Salve Regina University, Rhode Island, USA

Cocreating the Field is about developing a radically new story to shift our perception of who we are as humans from a focus on our separate individual natures to our complex interconnectedness. The core Gestalt model offers a theoretical and pragmatic frame for addressing urgent concerns in a wide range of crucial arenas. Topics include the new relational neuroscience and how it interfaces with Gestalt's assumptions about healthy human process; how transformational thinking brings pro-social and, for some, spiritual questing into focus; and how Gestalt-trained practitioners, therapists, coaches and consultants can become citizen-practitioners in a troubled world.

CoNTENTS: Ullman, Prologue. Wheeler, New Directions in Gestalt Theory and Practice: Psychology and Psychotherapy in the Age of Complexity. Jacobs, Relationality: Foundational Assumptions. Staemmler, On Macaque Monkeys, Players, and Clairvoyants: Some Ideas for a Gestalt Therapeutic Concept of Empathy. Lobb, Cocreation and the Contact Boundary in the Therapeutic Situation.
