Psychoanalytic Inquiry Book Series

Series Editor: Dana Birksted-Breen Assistant Editor: Alessandra Lemma 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 2 www.routledgementalhealth.com/nlp/teachingseries.asp

Series Editor: Joseph D. Lichtenberg Home to foundational studies in self psychology, motivation theory, and intersubjectivity theory, the Psychoanalytic Inquiry Book Series continues to publish PostFreudian 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 11 www.routledgementalhealth.com/psychoanalytic-inquiry

The New Library of Psychoanalysis Series Series Editor: Dana Birksted-Breen Assistant Editor: Alessandra Lemma 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 3 www.routledgementalhealth.com/nlp

Relational Perspectives Book Series Series Editors: Lewis Aron and Adrienne Harris 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. This series is home to works by Stephen A. Mitchell, Lewis Aron, Neil Altman, Joyce Slochower, Adrienne Harris, Muriel Dimen, and other exemplars of contemporary relational thinking.

Routledge Classics Series Psychoanalysis in a New Key Book Series Series Editor: Donnel B. Stern 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, among them: the role of the analyst’s personal values in analytic work; the association between dissociation and criminal violence; the nature and treatment of massive onset adult trauma; the question of whether clinical writing can be expanded into the personal essay; and the almost universal tendency of psychoanalysts to ignore the degree to which they knowingly satisfy their own wishes during treatment hours, often to the patient’s detriment. Page 9 www.routledgementalhealth.com/psychoanalysis-new-key

Routledge Classics contains the very best of Routledge publishing over the past century or so, books that have, by popular consent, become established as classics in their field. Drawing on a fantastic heritage of innovative writing published by Routledge and its associated imprints, this series makes available in attractive, affordable form some of the most important works of modern times.

Makers of Modern Psychotherapy Series Series Editor: Laurence Spurling 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

Reading French Psychoanalysis Edited by Dana Birksted-Breen, and Sara Flanders, both Training Analysts, British Psychoanalytical Society, and Alain Gibeault, Training Analyst, Paris Psychoanalytical Society 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. Seminal and representative papers have been chosen to illuminate what is special about French thinking. A substantial general introduction argues in favour of the specificity of ‘French psychoanalysis’, tracing its early influences and highlighting specific contemporary developments. Sections are made up of introductory material by Alain Gibeault, followed by illustrative papers in the following categories: • the history of psychoanalysis in France • forefathers and filiations • the setting and process of psychoanalysis • phantasy and representation • the body and the drives • masculine and feminine sexuality • psychosis. An excellent introduction to French psychoanalytical debate, Reading French Psychoanalysis sheds a complementary light on thinking that has evolved differently in England and North America. It will be ideal reading for beginners and advanced students of clinical theory as well as experienced psychoanalysts wanting to know more about French Psychoanalytic theory, and how it has developed.

Reading Freud A Chronological Exploration of Freud’s Writings Jean-Michel Quinodoz, in private practice, Geneva, Switzerland “Reading Freud is a significant contribution to the psychoanalytic literature. It is a work that reaffirms the continued value of Freudian thought in an era in which psychoanalytic ideas are under attack. It belongs on the bookshelf of both beginning candidates and experienced

psychoanalysts.” - Glen Gabbard, Training Psychoanalyst of the American Psychoanalytic Association, Houston, USA

Reading Freud provides an accessible outline of the whole of Freud’s work from Studies in Hysteria through to An Outline of Psycho-Analysis. It succeeds in expressing even the most complex of Freud’s theories in clear and simple language whilst avoiding over-simplification. Each chapter concentrates on an individual text and includes valuable background information, relevant biographical and historical details, descriptions of Post-Freudian developments and a chronology of Freud’s concepts. By putting each text into the context of Freud’s life and work as a whole, Jean-Michel Quinodoz manages to produce an overview which is chronological, correlative and interactive.

Her Contribution to Psychoanalysis

Drawing on his extensive experience as a clinician and a teacher of psychoanalysis, Jean-Michel Quinodoz has produced a uniquely comprehensive presentation of Freud’s work which will be of great value to anyone studying Freud and Psychoanalysis.

Thinking and Dreaming, Learning and Forgetting Thomas H. Ogden, Director, Centre 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 as he continues in this book 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, Thomas Ogden offers ways of revitalizing and reinventing the exchange between analyst and patient in each session, making this book essential reading for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, and other readers with an interest in psychoanalysis.

Claudia Frank, in private practice, Stuttgart, Germany Edited and with a Preface by Elizabeth Spillius, Training Psychoanalyst, British Psychoanalytical Society, UK Translated by Sophie Leighton, and Sue Young “This book is the work of a true scholar. And we all have much reason to thank Claudia for making us aware of the results of her meticulous comparison of Klein’s published papers, her unpublished papers and her clinical treatment notes.” - Elizabeth Spillius, From the Preface In this book Claudia Frank discusses how Melanie Klein began to develop her psychoanalysis of children. Melanie Klein in Berlin: Her First Psychoanalyses of Children offers a detailed comparative analysis of both published and unpublished material from the Melanie Klein archives. By using previously unpublished studies, Frank demonstrates how Klein enriched the concept of negative transference and 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 paranoid-schizoid 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. Section two provides a translation of Klein’s unpublished notes on the treatments of four of the children she analysed in Berlin, seven year old Grete, two year old Rita, seven year old Inge and six year old Erna. Melanie Klein in Berlin is the first text to make extensive use of Klein’s unpublished papers, clinical notes, diaries and manuscripts. Contents: Spillius, Preface. Part I: Introduction.

Doubt, Conviction and the Analytic Process Selected Papers of Michael Feldman Michael Feldman, Training Analyst, British Psychoanalytical Society Edited by Betty Joseph 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 not only to communicate to the analyst, in order to be understood by him, but also in order to affect him.

The author’s detailed descriptions of the clinical process allows the reader to follow the actual process that enables the patient to get into contact with thoughts and feelings of which he 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 he can make a significant contribution to the process of psychic change.

Constructions and the Analytic Field History, Scenes and Destiny Domenico Chianese, Psychiatrist, and Training Analyst, Rome, Italy Constructions and the Analytic Field questions the relationship between psychoanalysis, history and literature. Does the analyst help the analysand construct a narrative, or is their task more of a historical reconstruction?


the new library of psychoanalysis series www.routledgementalhealth.com/nlp In seeking to answer this question, Domenico Chianese examines Freud’s writing, beginning with ‘Constructions in Analysis’ and ending in ‘Moses and Monotheism’, as well as the impressions of analytic method reflected in contemporary writers such as Thomas Mann, and historical writings from both sides of the Atlantic. Drawing on vivid and persuasive clinical examples, he argues that psychoanalysis creates a ‘scenic space’ between analysand and analyst, a theatrical space wherein the cast of the patient’s interior world enter and exit from the scene.

Time, Space and Phantasy

Psychoanalysis Comparable and Incomparable

Rosine Jozef Perelberg, Member of the British Psychoanalytical Society “This is a deeply intelligent and original book yet written in a clear and simple style which avoids jargon. Reading Time, Space and Phantasy gives you the feeling that you are discovering ideas that were never brought together in quite this way. This exceptional book has many remarkable clinical illustrations and closes with a beautiful chapter, written with Bella Jozef... followed by thoughts on creativity in psychoanalytical research.” - Marilia Aisenstein,

Past President of the Société Psychanalytique de Paris

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. Perelberg’s analysis of Freud’s Multi-dimensional model of temporality suggests that he always viewed the constitution of the individual as non-linear. In Freud’s formulations, the individual is decentred and ruled by different temporalities, most of which escape their consciousness. Perelberg identifies the similarities between this and Einstein’s theory of relativity which states that rather than being absolute, time depends on the relative position and speed of the observing individual suggesting that rather than being a reality, time is an abstraction, connecting objects and events. 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. This book will be of interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychologists, and social workers. Contents: Part I: Theory and Clinical Practice.

I know of no project more important than this one for the future of psychoanalysis. Each chapter is filled with ideas, and every working analyst will come away from this book stimulated to think in new and interesting ways about his or her own clinical activity.” - Arnold M. Cooper, Weill Cornell Medical College, USA

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.

“I found this a fascinating and rewarding book to read, with a breadth, as well as depth, of content that is unusual in a psychoanalytic book, reflecting Hanna Segal’s commitment to a search for truth, which is not confined to psychic reality but encompasses social and political reality and conflict. I recommend it highly.” - Golshad Ghiaci, Reflections Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow presents a selection of papers written by Hanna Segal. The collection introduces the reader to a wide spectrum of insights into psychoanalysis, ranging from current thoughts on the nature of dreaming to new ideas about vision and disillusionment. Her long interest in factors affecting war is pursued in her examination of the psychotic factors, symbolic significance and psychological impact of the events of September the 11th, and the ensuing war on Iraq. Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is a masterly contribution to the field. Segal’s clarity of thought and striking clinical illustrations make the book accessible to those new to the field as well as those acquainted with her seminal work. Contents: Schafer, Foreword.

“This is a fine book, both as a refreshing and illuminating account of Melanie Klein’s thinking, and as an expression of Elizabeth Spillius’s own attitudes to and work in psychoanalysis.” - Michael Brearley, International Journal of Psychoanalysis

In Encounters with Melanie Klein: Selected Papers of Elizabeth Spillius the author argues that her two professions, anthropology and psychoanalysis, have much in common, and explains how her background in anthropology led her on to a profound involvement in psychoanalysis and her establishment as a leading figure amongst Kleinian analysts. Spillius describes what she regards as the important features of Kleinian thought and discusses the research she has carried out in Melanie Klein’s unpublished archive, including Klein’s views on projective identification. Spillius’s own clinical ideas make up the last part of the book with papers on envy, phantasy, technique, the negative therapeutic reaction and otherness. Contents: Roth, Rusbridger, Preface.

Projected Shadows Psychoanalytic Reflections on the Representation of Loss in European Cinema Edited by Andrea Sabbadini, Fellow of the Institute of Psychoanalysis, London, UK Foreword by Glen O. Gabbard

“The volume is a state-of-the-art account of where we are today with the study of cinema through a psychoanalytic lens. Sabbadini has brought together a group of gifted authors who show that methodologies continue to evolve, while, at the same time, we can still mine the ore of the time honoured traditions.” - Glen O. Gabbard, From the Foreword

Projected Shadows presents a new collection of essays exploring films from a psychoanalytic perspective, focusing specifically on the representation of loss in European cinema. This theme is discussed in its many aspects, including: loss of hope and innocence, of youth, of consciousness, of freedom and loss through death. Projected Shadows aims to deepen the ongoing constructive dialogue between psychoanalysis and film. Andrea Sabbadini has assembled a remarkable number of internationally renowned contributors, both academic film scholars and psychoanalysts from a variety of cultural backgrounds, who use an array of contemporary methodologies to apply psychoanalytic thinking to film. This original collection will appeal to anyone passionate about film, as well as professionals, academics and students interested in the relationship between psychoanalysis and the arts.

The Many Voices of Psychoanalysis Roger Kennedy, Cassel Hospital, Richmond, UK “Kennedy’s work demonstrates that psychoanalysis continues to have much to offer to individuals, to families, and to the societies and cultures within which they are embedded.” - Paul M. Brinich, in PsycCritiques

The Many Voices of Psychoanalysis spans over thirty years of Roger Kennedy’s work as a practicing psychoanalyst, providing a fascinating insight into the process of development of psychoanalytic identity. The introduction puts the papers into context, charting the development of the author’s practice and understanding of psychoanalysis and his position as part of the British Independent tradition. The intention of the chapters is to address the ‘many voices’ of psychoanalysis – the many roles and approaches a psychoanalyst may take, while adhering to the established ideas of psychoanalysis. The author takes into account the various influences which shape the psychoanalytic voice, drawing on literature, philosophy and sociology as well as analytic ideas. Subjects covered include: • aspects of consciousness – one voice or many? • handling the dual aspect of the transference • bearing the unbearable – working with the abused mind • the internal drama – psychoanalysis and the theatre • a psychoanalyst in the family court. This book will be of use not only to practicing psychoanalysts, but also to psychoanalytic psychotherapists and other mental health workers. It will also appeal to anyone interested in the relationship between psychoanalysis and related disciplines. Contents: Introduction. Part I: Theoretical Voices. Freedom to Relate.

The Human Aspects of the Psychoanalytic Relationship. Aspects of Consciousness – One Voice or Many? On Subjective Organisations. Restoring History to Psychoanalysis. Part II: Clinical Voices.

Psychoanalysis in a New Key Book Series

Contemporary Perspectives from Psychoanalytic Gender Theory

Partners in Thought Working with Unformulated Experience, Dissociation, and Enactment

Building on the groundbreaking work of Unformulated Experience (1997), 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. In hermeneutic terms, what takes place in the consulting room is a particular kind of conversation, one in which patient and analyst serve as one another’s partner in thought, an emotionally responsive witness to the other’s experience. 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. Approaching the link between dissociation and enactment via hermeneutics, metaphor, and narrative, among other perspectives, Stern weaves an experiencenear theory of psychoanalytic relatedness that illuminates dilemmas clinicians find themselves in every day. Full of clinical illustrations showing how Stern works with dissociation and enactment, Partners in Thought is destined to take its place beside Unformulated Experience as a major contribution to the psychoanalytic literature. Contents: Introduction: The Embodiment of Meaning in Relatedness. The Conversation and its Interruptions. The Fusion of Horizons: Dissociation, Enactment, and Understanding. The Eye Sees Itself: Dissociation, Enactment, and the Achievement of Conflict. Partners in Thought: A Clinical Process Theory of Narrative. Shall the Twain Meet? Metaphor, Dissociation, and Co-occurrence. Opening What Has Been Closed, Relaxing What Has Been Clenched: Dissociation and Enactment Over Time in Committed Relationships.

Edited by Bruce Reis, NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, New York, USA, and Robert Grossmark, City University of New York, USA 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. What to a previous generation would have appeared as pathological or defensive, we now encounter as forms of masculine subjectivity that include wishes for intimacy, receptivity, and surrender, alongside ambition and the pleasures of “phallic narcissism.” Contents: Person, Masculinities, Plural.

From Dissociation to Imagination in Psychoanalysis

The last half-century has seen enormous changes in society’s attitude toward sexuality. In the 1950s, homosexuals in the United States were routinely arrested; today, homosexual activity between consenting adults is legal in every state, with same-sex marriage legal in Massachusetts and Connecticut. 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 run 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 reflections on the changes that have occurred during that time period, both within the scope of society at large as well as in his personal experiences inside and outside of the therapeutic setting. Sex Changes seeks to restore the place of psychoanalysis as the “once and future queer science,” and aims for a radical shift in psychoanalytic thinking about sexuality, gender, normalcy, prejudice, and the relationship of therapeutic aims and values.

The Consulting Room and Beyond Psychoanalytic Work and Its Reverberations in the Analyst’s Life Therese Ragen, New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA Foreword by Donnel Stern

“Ragen’s ability to seamlessly integrate the deeply felt rhythms of her internal life with those of her patients and the larger psychoanalytic community will resonate with seasoned and novice therapists, alike.” - Lewis Aron, Director, NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA

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

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.

Coasting in the Countertransference

Prologue to Violence

Child Abuse, Dissociation, and Crime

Conflicts of Self Interest between Analyst and Patient

Abby Stein, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, USA

Irwin Hirsch, New York University Postdoctoral Program, USA “By writing Coasting in the Countertransference, Irwin Hirsch performed a service for the field of psychoanalysis. This courageous, and badly needed book opens up an aspect of psychoanalytic work that has long remained cloaked in silence... This is a groundbreaking book, and one that no one engaged in treating patients can afford not to read.” - Theodore Jacobs, Training and Supervising Analyst, New York Psychoanalytic Institute, USA

Irwin Hirsch, author of Coasting in the Countertransference, 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. Instead, analysts may prefer to maintain what has developed into perhaps a mutually comfortable equilibrium in the treatment. 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. Contents: Coasting in the Countertransference: Analysts’ Pursuit of Self-

Interest. The Influence of Situational Factors, in Analysts’ Lives and Preferred Relational States, on Analytic Participation. Analysts’ Character Structure and the Wish for Emotional Equilibrium.

Foreword by Donnel B. Stern “In writing a book linking crime and dissociation, Stein has given us a work that is at once poetic and integrative, rich in its psychodynamic grasp of violent criminals’ disturbing interior... In a time of global violence, it is an important study.”

- Sue Grand, NYU Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA

Despite mounting references to the “transgenerational transmission of violence,” we still lack a compelling understanding of the linkage between the interpersonal violence of early life and the criminal violence of adulthood. In Prologue to Violence, Abby Stein draws on the gripping narratives of 65 incarcerated subjects and extensive material from law enforcement files to remedy this lacuna in both the forensic and psychodynamic literature. 2006: 168pp. Hb: 978-0-88163-416-7: £20.99/$31.95

The culmination of three decades of studying and treating survivors of adult onset trauma, Wounded by Reality is the first systematic attempt to differentiate adult onset trauma from childhood trauma, with which it is frequently confused. When catastrophic events overtake adult lives, they often scar the psyche in ways that psychodynamically oriented clinicians struggle to understand. For Ghislaine Boulanger, the enormous challenge of working with these patients is unsurprising. 2007: 202pp. Hb: 978-0-88163-430-3: £24.95/$39.95

Brandchaft’s Intersubjective Vision Contributions Toward an Emancipatory Psychoanalysis Edited by Dorienne Sorter, co-chair, faculty, and supervisor at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Study of the Self, New York City, USA, Shelley R. Doctors, faculty and Supervising Analyst, Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, New York City, USA, and Bernard Brandchaft, Training and Supervising Analyst, Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Institute, USA Best known for his contributions to the development of contemporary Intersubjectivity theory, Bernard Brandchaft has dedicated a lifetime’s worth of work toward the advancement of psychoanalytic theory and practice. Continually searching for a theoretical viewpoint that would satisfactorily explain the clinical phenomena he was encountering, his curiosity eventually led him to the work of Heinz Kohut and the thenemerging school of self psychology.

From Psychoanalytic Narrative to Empirical Single Case Research Implications for Psychoanalytic Practice Horst Kächele, University of Ulm, Germany, Joseph Schachter, Columbia University, USA, and Helmut Thomä, University of Ulm, Germany

“This is a landmark volume, an integrative summary of the substantive achievements of psychoanalytic process research of the past decades.” - Peter Fonagy, University College London, UK

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 well-documented, 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 Theoretical Considerations, Research Findings, and Clinical Implications

Edited by Fredric N. Busch, Weill Cornell Medical Center, USA “Fredric Busch has done a masterful job in bringing together the key persons in the field in this collection of theoretical, research and clinical studies, together with overviews by Otto Kernberg, Mary Target and Busch himself. There is no more comprehensive introduction to the contemporary place of mentalization in psychoanalytic thinking.” - Robert Michels, Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, USA

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. Contents: Part I: Theory. Fonagy, The Mentalization-Focused Approach to Social Development. Gergely, Unoka, The Development of the Unreflective Self.

Transforming Narcissism Reflections on Empathy, Humor, and Expectations Frank M. Lachmann, New York University Postdoctoral Program, USA

“Frank Lachmann’s Transforming Narcissism is a worldly, wise and witty update of Kohut’s revolutionary ideas about the self and its vulnerabilities in development and psychotherapy... I highly recommend this book to clinicians, teachers, and students who seek the wisdom of our most seasoned practitioners.” - David E. Scharff, Co-Director, International Psychotherapy Institute, Washington, DC, USA

Using Kohut’s seminal paper “Forms and Transformations of Narcissism” as a springboard, Frank Lachmann updates Kohut’s proposals for contemporary clinicians. Transforming Narcissism draws on a wide range of contributions from empirical infant research, psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic practice, social psychology, and autobiographies of creative artists to expand and modify Kohut’s proposition that archaic narcissism is transformed in the course of development or through treatment. 2007: 272pp. Hb: 978-0-88163-468-6: £55.00/$90.00 Pb: 978-0-88163-479-2: £21.99/$34.95

Toward a Psychology of Uncertainty Trauma-Centered Psychoanalysis Doris Brothers, in private practice, New York, USA “This is a courageous and inspiring book, both scholarly and accessible... A great read.” - Donna Orange, Author, Emotional

Understanding: Studies in Psychoanalytic Epistemology

In Toward a Psychology of Uncertainty: Trauma-Centered Psychoanalysis, Doris Brothers urges a return to a trauma-centered psychoanalysis. Making use of relational systems theory, she shows that experiences of uncertainty are continually transformed by the regulatory processes of everyday life such as feeling, knowing, forming categories, making decisions, using language, creating narratives, sensing time, remembering, forgetting, and fantasizing. Dr. Brothers’ perspective sheds fresh light on a variety of topics of great general interest to analysts as well as many of their patients. Her discussions of these topics are enlivened by references to contemporary cinema and theatre. 2007: 224pp. Hb: 978-0-88163-477-8: £55.00/$90.00 Pb: 978-0-88163-478-5: £21.99/$34.95

Sensuality and Sexuality Across the Divide of Shame Joseph D. Lichtenberg, in private practice, Washington, DC, USA

“If attachment theory is to be integrated into psychoanalytic thought it has to develop its own theory of sexuality. Lichtenberg’s excellent integration is a sophisticated, rich and imaginative leap forward in Lichtenberg’s inimitable scholarly yet clinically focused style. This book is a must for anyone interested in either attachment theory or sexuality.” - Peter Fonagy, University College London, UK Placed in a historical context, sexuality was once so prominent in psychoanalytic writing that sexual drive and psychoanalysis were synonymous. The exciting discovery of childhood sexuality filled the literature. Then other discoveries came to the fore until sexuality slipped far in the background. This book evokes the excitement of the original discoveries of childhood sexual experience while linking childhood sensuality and sexuality to adult attachment, romantic, and lustful love. This revised perspective offers the general reader insight into contemporary psychoanalytic thought, and presents clinicians with a perspective for exploring their patients sensuality and sexuality with renewed interest and knowledge. Contents: Looking at Sensuality and Sexuality Across the Divide of Shame. The Oedipus Complex in the 21st Century. Intimacy with the Gendered Self. Veronica: A Case Example.

“It is always a great opportunity to read the collected papers of a master in his field, and to trace the development of his thinking over the course of his career... This book is essential reading for students of development and for clinicians interested in understanding the process of therapeutic change.” - Alexandra Harrison, Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, USA

This collection of previously published papers can be viewed as a story of the gradual emergence of an overarching idea through the course of a life’s work. The idea concerns the way emerging knowledge of developmental processes, biological systems, and therapeutic process can be integrated in terms of basic principles that govern the living system as an ongoing creative process – a process in which there is a continuing impetus, both energizing and motivational, that moves the living system toward an enhanced coherence in its engagement with its surround as it achieves an ever-increasing inclusiveness of complexity. The papers have been selected in a roughly chronological order from a career of early developmental research within the background of psychoanalytic thinking. The biological underpinnings of psychoanalysis can be extended by systems thinking. 2007: 296pp. Hb: 978-0-88163-464-8: £27.99/$50.00

Jealousy and Envy

New Views about Two Powerful Feelings

The Challenge of Integration Fredric N. Busch, and Larry S. Sandberg, both at Weill Cornell Medical School, USA “... Busch and Sandberg offer a comprehensive guide to all of the complexities of this combined mode of treatment... this is the finest guide available on the use of medication in psychotherapy.” - Joseph Reppen, Editor,

Edited by Léon Wurmser, University of West Virginia, USA, and Heidrun Jarass, in private practice, Germany “This book’s quite extraordinary accomplishment derives from two factors. The authors’ editing and careful explication provide a coherent overview on the topics of envy and jealousy by defining these strong feelings thoroughly... This valuable book shows a great breadth of theoretical and clinical issues around envy and jealousy.” - Manfred Cierpka, University of Heidelberg, Germany

Jealousy and envy permeate the practice of psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic work. New experience and new relevance of old but neglected ideas about these two feeling states and their origins warrant special attention, both as to theory and practice. Taken together, the contributions to the stunning and insightful volume form a broad spectrum of new insights into the dynamics of two central emotions of rivalry and their clinical and cultural relevance and application. 2007: 204pp. Hb: 978-0-88163-470-9: £22.99/$39.95

Attachment and Sexuality Edited by Diana Diamond, City University of New York, USA, Sidney J. Blatt, Yale University, USA, and Joseph D. Lichtenberg, in private practice, Washington, DC, USA

“Diamond, Blatt and Lichtenberg have assembled a radical set of original chapters exploring the many links, and interdependencies, between sexuality and attachment... This groundbreaking book is essential reading both for advanced students and scholars in the social sciences.” - Howard Steele, New School for Social Research, USA

The papers featured in Attachment and Sexuality create a dense tapestry, each forming a separate narrative strand that elucidates different configurations of the relationship between attachment and sexuality. As a whole, the volume explores the areas of convergence and divergence, opposition, and integration between these two systems. It suggests that there is a bi-directional web of influences that weaves the attachment and sexual systems together in increasingly complex ways from infancy to adulthood.

Psychotherapy and Medication

Psychoanalytic Psychology

Over the past two decades, the use of medication combined with psychotherapy or psychoanalysis has shifted from an infrequent occurrence to common practice. Concurrently, attitudes toward medication have changed from viewing this intervention as disruptive or as a last resort to a welcome aid in the psychotherapeutic or psychoanalytic process. Psychotherapy and Medication is an exceptionally valuable and timely volume that provides psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, and other mental health professionals with information on how to work with medication theoretically, clinically, and technically in the context of a psychotherapeutic or psychoanalytic treatment. 2007: 177pp. Hb: 978-0-88163-451-8: £24.95/$39.95

Trauma and Human Existence Autobiographical, Psychoanalytic, and Philosophical Reflections Robert D. Stolorow, Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis, Los Angeles, USA

“Stolorow’s Trauma and Human Existence is a remarkable integration of deep selfreflections on intimate, often painful, and sometimes tragic experience... This is an important addition to the now long line of works that constitute the corpus of Stolorow and colleagues’ intersubjectivity theory.” - Lewis Aron, Director, NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA

Trauma and Human Existence effectively interweaves two themes central to emotional trauma – the first pertains to the contextuality of emotional life in general, and of the experience of emotional trauma in particular, and the second pertains to the recognition that the possibility of emotional trauma is built into the basic constitution of human existence. Taken as a whole, Trauma and Human Existence exhibits the unity of the deeply personal, the theoretical, and the philosophical in the understanding of emotional trauma and the place it occupies in human existence. 2007: 62pp. Pb: 978-0-88163-467-9: £11.99/$19.95

Second Edition Neil Altman, NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA 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 who 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, more often than not leading to a negative self image of the “other” in an increasingly polarized society. 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. Altman greatly expands his section on race, both in the psychoanalytic and the larger social world. Contents: Introduction. Part I: Background. Clinical Experiences in Public Clinics.

Dare to Be Human A Contemporary Psychoanalytic Journey Michael Shoshani Rosenbaum, Bar-Ilan University School of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Israel “Dr. Shoshani’s moving back and forth between descriptions of Daniel and his own emotional process in trying to understand and help Daniel, made it quite a page-turner for me. Shoshani’s choice to present so much raw material was clearly the right one... It’s an extraordinary piece of work – the treatment itself, not just the paper – a beautiful example of how a patient, who is extremely ‘difficult’ by many criteria, can become deeply responsive to the help that an analyst offers.” - Nancy McWilliams,

Rutgers University, and President, APA Division 39 (Psychoanalysis)

Daniel is 35, successful, a high level professional and an accomplished academic – yet he is also a virgin, who fears that he will spend the rest of his life alone. More importantly, Daniel has existed in an emotional bubble all of his life, and has had no intimate friendships. In other words, he is not fully alive, and seeks psychotherapy because he is haunted by not understanding what is wrong with him. He is attractive to women, yet as soon as a woman tries to get close to him, he runs away. Lacking an inner foundation, he fears that women will annihilate him, like his overbearing mother who abused him as a child. Quite simply, this book is an unprecedented achievement, taking the reader into actual psychoanalytic sessions and sharing with the reader Michael Shoshani’s dialogues with Daniel, vividly illustrating his pain and struggle to transcend his existential plight. It is a compelling psychological adventure, fusing together the intimacy of the therapy with an account of the revolutionary changes that have occurred in the practice of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis over the last decades. Contents: Introduction. Daniel’s Subterranean Bunker. From Liquid to Solid. From “Togetherness of One” to “Togetherness of Two.” Overcoming Perceived Betrayals: Escape from the Symbiotic Prison. From Immortal to Mortal. Ending and Separation. Epilogue, Part I and II. Theoretical Discussion: Thoughts on Insides and Outsides.

Gender as Soft Assembly Adrienne Harris, New York University, USA “In this dazzling tour de force, Adrienne Harris reminds us why she is a leading relational thinker and theorist of gender... Harris’s range is breathtaking, as she moves the reader beyond perspectives on development... to a theory that incorporates recent findings in psychoanalysis... throughout we find a profoundly humane, brave, and gifted analyst at work.” - Nancy J. Chodorow, San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute, USA Gender as Soft Assembly weaves together insights from different disciplinary domains to open up new vistas of clinical understanding of what it means to inhabit, to perform, and to be, gendered. Opposing the traditional notion of development as the linear unfolding of predictable stages, Adrienne Harris argues that children become gendered in multiply configured contexts. And she proffers new developmental models to capture the fluid, constructed, and creative experiences of becoming and being gendered. According to Harris, these models, and the images to which they give rise, articulate not only with contemporary relational psychoanalysis but also with recent research into the origins of mentalization and symbolization.

Repair of the Soul Metaphors of Transformation in Jewish Mysticism and Psychoanalysis Karen E. Starr, The City University of New York, USA Foreword by Lewis Aron

“In Repair of the Soul, Karen Starr has provided us with a sophisticated and well-informed discussion of the ways in which kabbalistic metaphors of transformation can be related to the work of psychic change in psychoanalysis... Starr’s book makes a valuable contribution to the contemporary awareness of issues of faith, of the ineffable other, and of the ‘transcendent Third,’ in analytic work.” - Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg, author, The Beginning of Desire: Reflections on Genesis

Repair of the Soul examines transformation from the perspective of Jewish mysticism and psychoanalysis, addressing the question of how one achieves self-understanding that leads not only to insight but also to meaningful change. In this beautifully written and thoughtprovoking book, Karen Starr draws upon a contemporary relational approach to psychoanalysis to explore the spiritual dimension of psychic change within the context of the psychoanalytic relationship.

Influenced by the work of Lewis Aron, Steven Mitchell and other relational theorists, and drawing upon contemporary scholarship in the field of Jewish studies, Starr brings the ideas of the Kabbalah, the ancient Jewish mystical tradition, into dialogue with modern psychoanalytic thought. Contents: Aron, Foreword. Introduction: The Kabbalah. Transformation. The Interpretive Encounter. Faith as the Fulcrum of Change. The Transformation of Evil. Epilogue: Jacob’s Ladder.

Adolescent Identities A Collection of Readings Edited by Deborah L. Browning, New York University, USA “With astutely chosen readings, this excellent anthology provides widely encompassing perspectives on adolescence... The collection will be of immense help to all teachers and students interested in adolescence. I will assign it in my course on adolescence and literature.”

- Paul Schwaber, Wesleyan University, USA

Adolescent Identities draws the reader into the inner world of the adolescent to examine the process of identity formation through the various lenses of history, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and psychoanalysis. The volume reveals there is no single “normal” adolescent, nor is there a singular adolescent experience. Editor Deborah L. Browning illustrates that in the course of development, each individual must integrate one’s unique biologically-given constitution and temperament, personal life history, and the influence of the social and cultural milieu. SELECTED Contents: Part I: Identifying Adolescence. Part II: Identity and Diversity and the Cultural Milieu. Part III: Adolescent Identity Formation and the Relational World. Part IV: Erik Erikson and Psychosocial Identity. Part V: Adolescent Identity Formation and the Internal World. Part VI: Challenges to Identity Coherence and Maintenance.

ComparativeIntegrative Psychoanalysis A Relational Perspective for the Discipline’s Second Century Brent Willock, Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis, Canada

“The challenge we face as psychoanalytic educators is how to foster conviction without stultifying conformity and encourage creativity in our candidates. [Dr. Willock’s] answer is the comparative-integrative approach. His book convincingly presents the theoretical, philosophical, and clinical foundations for this approach... I have Dr. Willock’s book and I am sure it will have the wide and interested audience that it deserves.” - Arnold Richards, Training and Supervising Analyst, New York Psychoanalytic Institute, USA


relational perspectives book series www.routledgementalhealth.com/relational-perspectives This exceptionally practical and insightful text explores the emerging field of comparative-integrative psychoanalysis. It provides an invaluable framework for approaching the currently fractious state of the psychoanalytic discipline, divided as it is into diverse schools of thought, presenting many conceptual challenges. Moving beyond the usual borders of psychoanalysis, Willock usefully draws on insights from neighboring disciplines to shed additional light on the core issue.

Bodies In Treatment

Relational Perspectives Book Series

The Unspoken Dimension

Edited by Frances Sommer Anderson, New York University Medical School, USA “This book sizzles with new approaches to the Body in therapy. Some so challenging that the analyst may wish to say no, this is a step too far. But no’s can mean, and in this instance do, that there are ideas which we are unused to which are worth engaging... This book contributes magnificently to the project first started by Freud to understand the relation between mind and body.” - Susie Orbach, Author, Fat is a Feminist Issue, Hunger Strike, and On Eating

Bodies In Treatment is a challenging volume that brings into conceptual focus an “unspoken dimension” of clinical work – the body and nonverbal communication – that has long occupied the shadowy realm of tacit knowledge. By bringing visceral, sensory, and imagistic modes of emotional processing to the forefront, Editor Frances Sommer Anderson and the contributors to this original collection expand the domain of psychodynamic engagement. SELECTED Contents: Stepansky, Preface. Anderson, Introduction. Bodily

Relational Psychoanalysis New Voices Volume 3 Edited by Melanie Suchet, in private practice, New York, USA, Adrienne Harris, New York University, USA, and Lewis Aron, New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA

“We hear talk now and then of a breakthrough in clinical thinking, the achievement of a new attitude and hence a new method. Relational Psychoanalysis, Volume 3: New Voices is one of those books where a group of pioneering clinicians and theoreticians... sparks the reader’s imagination in new directions... This book, Volume 3 of the Relational Psychoanalysis series, will stand proudly with the first two volumes.” - Philip Bromberg, Author, Awakening the Dreamer: Clinical Journeys

Relational psychoanalysis has revivified psychoanalytic discourse by attesting to the analyst’s multidimensional subjectivity and then showing how this subjectivity opens to deeper insights about the experience of analysis. Volume 3 of the Relational Psychoanalysis Book Series enlarges this ongoing project in significant ways. Here, leading relational theorists explore the cultural, racial, class-conscious, gendered, and even traumatized anlagen of the self as pathways to clinical understanding. Relational Psychoanalysis: New Voices is especially a forum for new relational voices and new idioms of relational discourse. Established writers, Muriel Dimen, Sue Grand, and Ruth Stein among them, utilize aspects of their own subjectivity to illuminate heretofore neglected dimensions of cultural experience, of trauma, and of clinical stalemate. sELECTED Contents: Part I: New Forms of Writing, Seasoned Voices. Part II: New Ideas, New Voices. Part III: Experiments in a New Key.

John Bowlby “One of the most influential forces in child psychiatry and psychology, Dr. Bowlby challenged basic tenets of psychoanalysis and pioneered methods of investigating the emotional life of children.” - The New York Times 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. 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.

Fromm’s was a subtle exploration of the negative aspect of freedom, a situation in which he saw modern man as alleviating his unbearable powerlessness and isolation only by morbid activity.” - The Times Erich Fromm sees right to the heart of our contradictory needs for community and for freedom like no other writer before or since. In The Fear of Freedom, Fromm warns that the price of community is indeed high, and it is the individual who pays.

Heinz Kohut and the Psychology of the Self Allen M. Siegel

“Self Psychology is a vigorous branch of psychoanalysis and should be better known and understood here... I recommend this book as an excellent introduction to the work of Heinz Kohut.” - Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Heinz Kohut’s work represents an important departure from the Freudian tradition of psychoanalysis. A founder of the Self Psychology movement in America, he based his practice on the belief that narcissistic vulnerabilities play a significant part in the suffering that brings people for treatment. Written predominantly for a psychoanalytic audience Kohut’s work is often difficult to interpret.

Thinking for Clinicians Philosophical Resources for Contemporary Psychoanalysis and the Humanistic Psychotherapies Donna M. Orange, Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, New York, USA Whether they are supervisees entering analytic training or veteran analysts with twenty years of private practice, many capable psychoanalysts express frustration or doubt when trying to locate their work within the vast, sometimes intimidating realm of clinical theory. To that end, Thinking for Clinicians aims to provide analysts of all shapes and sizes with the tools and context for working critically with psychoanalytic theory and practice. It does this by familiarizing the reader not only with the philosophical backgrounds of the pioneers of psychoanalysis and other humanistic psychotherapies, but also through detailed chapters on some of the thinkers whose work is especially relevant for contemporary theoretical and clinical writing. With a hermeneutic sensibility firmly in mind, Thinking for Clinicians rewards as it challenges and will be a valuable reference for clinicians. Contents: Introduction: The Philosophical Backstory.

Contemporary Psychoanalytic Foundations Postmodernism, Complexity and Neuroscience Mark Leffert, in private practice, Santa Barbara, USA Past scholars have tried to classify psychoanalysis as an intrinsically positivist science, to 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 a ‘inter-referential schema’ which balances the influences of postmodernism, complexity theory, and neuroscience as the 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 the conscious and the unconscious. Taken together, these three elements create a firm basis for the current trends in psychoanalysis and the direction of its development in the years to come.

From Christopher Bollas, Psychoanalyst, Member of the British Psychoanalytical Society, UK

Read and Recommend!

The Infinite Question Christopher Bollas 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. Bollas demonstrates, in an eloquent and persuasive manner, how the Freudian position of evenly suspended attentiveness enables the analyst’s unconscious to catch the drift of the patient’s own unconscious. He also shows that to stimulate further questioning is often of more benefit to the analytical process than to jump to an interpretation. Yet whatever fascinating course a session may take, neither the patient nor the analyst can halt the progress of the selfpropelling interrogative drive. The Infinite Question will be invaluable to both the new student and the experienced psychoanalyst, read either on its own or as a practicebased extension of the theoretical ideas elaborated in its companion volume, The Evocative Object World.

The Evocative Object World Christopher Bollas

Containing the essay Free Association In The Evocative Object World Christopher Bollas builds on Freud’s account of dream formation, combining it with perceptive clinical, theoretical and cultural insights to show how the psychoanalytical method can provide a rich understanding of what has traditionally been regarded as ‘the outside world’. 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. As with the evocative external structures of our environment, Bollas describes how the family, with its inherited genetic structures, likewise constitutes a pre-existent unconscious formation into which we are placed, and demonstrates that there is more to this multifaceted unit than the traditional psychoanalytical notion of the Oedipal triangle. In the process, Bollas also provides a fascinating and comprehensive review of how his own theories have evolved over the past three decades: a period during which, in his view, Western society has increasingly neglected – or even become actively hostile towards – unconscious life. 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, and how the work of the Freudian pair provides the best means to gain insight into our dreams, our surroundings, our families – and our mental life as a whole. Contents: Introduction. Free Association. Architecture and the Unconscious. The Evocative Object World. The Fourth Object and Beyond.

The Mystery of Things Christopher Bollas

In The Mystery of Things, Christopher Bollas takes the reader right to the heart of psychotherapy, examining the mysterious aspects of the self that are revealed by analysis. The method of enquiry at the heart of psychoanalysis, that is, free association, runs contrary to everything that we are taught is the logical, rational, scientific way to acquire data. Yet it is only through using such an apparently illogical and subversive method that the pathological structures in thinking can be penetrated and the self underneath revealed and worked with by the analyst. 1999: 224pp. Hb: 978-0-415-21231-1: £55.00/$96.95 Pb: 978-0-415-21232-8: £15.99/$28.95

Hysteria Christopher Bollas

In Hysteria the distinguished psychoanalyst Christopher Bollas offers an original and illuminating theory of hysteria that weaves its well-known features – repressed sexual ideas; indifference to conversion; overidentification with the other – into the hysteric form. True to his earlier writings, Bollas’ vision is thought provoking and mind expanding. Hysteria brings new perspectives to long-standing ideas, making enlightening reading for students and professionals involved in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy alike. 1999: 208pp. Pb: 978-0-415-22033-0: £15.99/$28.95

Cracking Up The Work of Unconscious Experience Christopher Bollas

In this original and thought-provoking book, Bollas examines how people educate one another in the idioms of their unconscious lives and considers the nature and consequences of the traumas that inhibit the freedom to do this. He studies what we mean by the past – is it unchangeable or can history be a creative, open understanding of experience? We come to know who we are by giving form and meaning to our past – yet what do we mean by the self? Bollas’ answer suggests yet more ways in which the ‘separate sense’ expresses each person’s unique qualities. 1995: 272pp. Hb: 978-0-415-12242-9: £50.00/$80.00 Pb: 978-0-415-12243-6: £15.99/$28.95

Being a Character Psychoanalysis and Self Experience Christopher Bollas “Being a Character explores the subject of selfknowledge and the individuals’ construction of meaning in their lives. It is always stimulating, particularly through the author’s use of his own self-experience. This book is well worth reading by anyone involved in psychotherapy or related work.” - Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Taking Freud’s model of dreamwork as a model for all unconscious thinking, Christopher Bollas argues that we dreamwork ourselves into becoming who we are, and illustrates how the analyst and the patient use such unconscious processes to develop new psychic structures that the patient can use to alter his or her self experience. 1993: 304pp. Pb: 978-0-415-08815-2: £15.99/$28.95

NeuroAnalysis

Building Out into the Dark

Bridging the Gap Between Neuroscience, Psychoanalysis and Psychiatry

Theory and Observation in Science and Psychoanalysis

Avi Peled, 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.

Robert Caper, 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 also explores topics including: • the origins of psychoanalysis in the art of medicine • the therapeutic effect of psychoanalysis

Spontaneity A Psychoanalytic Inquiry Gemma Corradi Fiumara, The Third University of Rome, Italy “Dr. Corradi Fiumara seeks to lift psychoanalytic thinking from the creature-drive level of psychic determinism to the higher level of subjective, spontaneous, ineffability, unpredictability, humanness – as metapsychological constructs. I found this to be an exciting and innovative work.” - James Grotstein, author, A Beam of Intense Darkness: Wilfred Bion’s Legacy to Psychoanalysis

Psychoanalytic theory frequently explains psychopathology from the perspectives 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. Gemma Corradi Fiumara draws on a wealth of clinical and theoretical experience to demonstrate that it is not what happens to us, but how we react to these events, that forms who we are. This book will be essential reading for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, philosophers and psychologists. It will also prove to be engaging for those interested in psychoanalytic theory and theories of subjectivity. Contents: Introductory Remarks. Rethinking Internalization. The Function of Paradox.

The Zen Impulse and the Psychoanalytic Encounter Paul C. Cooper, Dean of Training at the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis Although psychoanalysis and Zen Buddhism derive from theoretical and philosophical assumptions worlds apart, both experientially-based traditions share at their heart a desire for the understanding, development, and growth of the human experience. Paul Cooper utilizes detailed clinical vignettes to contextualize the implications of Zen Buddhism in the therapeutic setting to demonstrate how its practices and beliefs inform, relate to, and enhance transformative psychoanalytic practice. The basic concepts of Zen, such as the identity of the relative and the absolute and the foundational principles of emptiness and dependentarising, are given special attention as they relate to the psychoanalytic

In addition, through an analysis of apophasis, a unique style of discourse that serves as a basic structure for mystical languages, he provides insight into the structure of the seemingly irrational Zen koan in order to demonstrate its function as a pedagogical and psychological tool. Though mindful of their differences, Cooper’s intent throughout is to illustrate how the practices of both Zen and psychoanalysis become internalized by the individual who engages in them and can, in turn, inform one another in mutually beneficial ways.

Awakening our Faith in the Future The Advent of Psychological Liberalism Peter T. 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.” - Andrew Samuels, 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. In this book, he argues that by combining political liberalism and psychology, and encouraging psychologists to develop cultural learning practices based on ideas of self-knowledge, there is opportunity to transform our political culture. This scholarly text uses personal experiences and the stories of progressive political leaders as pathways for addressing political problems, making it ideal reading for professionals and students in the fields of both politics and psychology as well as for activists interested in the future of liberalism.

Mirroring and Attunement Self Realization in Psychoanalysis and Art Kenneth Wright, in private psychoanalytic practice, Suffolk, UK “This lucidly written account of seminal concepts from Bion, Stern and Winnicott, brings them vividly to life through integrating them into an interdisciplinary work that incorporates ideas from art, poetry, and philosophy and that makes it recommended reading for practitioners and students of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.” - Ann Casement, Licensed Psychoanalyst; Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute

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. They thus provide renewed opportunities for holding and emotional growth. Mirroring and Attunement will provide essential reading for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, and art therapists and be of interest to anyone working at the interface between psychoanalysis, art and religion.

Shame and Sexuality Psychoanalysis and Visual Culture Edited by Claire Pajaczkowska, Middlesex University, London, UK, and Ivan Ward, 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. Claire Pajaczkowska and Ivan Ward bring together debates within and between the discourses of psychoanalysis and visual culture, generating new avenues of enquiry for scholars of culture, theory and psychoanalysis. Contents: Pajaczkowska, Ward, Introduction: Shame, Sexuality and Visual

Psyche’s Veil Psychotherapy, Fractals and Complexity Terry Marks-Tarlow, in private practice, California, USA “Terry Marks-Tarlow invites us into a new world – one worth diving into and relishing for its fresh and important approach that can expand how we understand our lives.” - Daniel J. Siegel, From the Foreword

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. Written at the interface between artistic, scientific and spiritual aspects of therapy, Psyche’s Veil is a case-based book that aspires to a paradigm shift in how practitioners conceptualize critical ingredients for internal healing. Novel treatment of sophisticated psychoanalytical issues and tie-ins to interpersonal neurobiology make this book appeal to both the specialist practitioner, as well as the generalist reader.

The Embedded Self

Judith Pickering, in private practice, Sydney, Australia

Second Edition

First published in 1996, The Embedded Self was lauded as “a brilliant and long overdue rapprochement between psychoanalysis and family therapy conceived by a practitioner trained and experienced in both modalities of treatment.” 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 Embedded Self was a sterling introduction to family systems theory and therapy, and enhanced the work of analysts and family and couples therapists alike. The second edition proves no different in its context but wider in its scope. Contents: Introduction: New Possibilities for Integration. Theoretical Overview. An Orientation to Family Systems Theory. Controversies and Conundrums. Context and Culture. Family Patterns. Attachment Theory: A New Frontier. Development from a Family Perspective. Diagnosis from a Family Perspective. How to Intervene: Technique and Timing. The Therapeutic Relationship. Playfulness, Authority and Authenticity. Referrals: Who? When? Where?

“Judith Pickering’s book is a sweeping, aweinspiring, fulfilling and erudite revisioning of the most important subject we ever experience and confront... Her work is rich, extensive, profound, and I am tempted to say that she has left no stone that I know of unturned in regard to the experience of love.” - James Grotstein, From the Preface Finding true love is a journey of transformation obstructed by numerous psychological obstacles. Being in Love expands the 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. Pickering draws on clinical material, contemporary psychoanalysis, cultural themes from the worlds of mythology and literature, and a wealth of therapeutic techniques in this fresh approach to couple therapy. selected Contents: Grotstein, Preface.

The Dead Father A Psychoanalytic Inquiry Edited by Lila J. Kalinich, Columbia University Psychoanalytic Center, USA, and Stuart W. Taylor, Columbia College, New York, USA

This book constructs a much needed framework to allow psychoanalysts to consider the difficulties of a generation without a solid anchor in the Father. The Dead Father: A Psychoanalytic Inquiry provides a necessary addition to decades of work on the role of the mother in development. The editors bring together world renowned scholars to discuss current observations in their fields, in terms of the Father’s changing but essential functions, both in the lives of the individual and collective. Divided into four parts, chapters focus on: • the lost father • the father embodied • the father in theory • father culture. Exploring the role of the father in individual psychology, everyday interpersonal and social experience and cultural phenomena writ large, this book will be essential reading for psychoanalysts, as well as psychologists, social workers and scholars in the humanities.

The Emotional Experience of Adoption A Psychoanalytical Perspective Edited by Debbie Hindle, Scottish Institute of Human Relations, Scotland, UK, and Graham Shulman, The Tavistock Clinic, London, UK

“An interesting, informative and enjoyable read, the volume conveys core psychoanalytic ideas relevant to adoption and insights into therapeutic processes in a very vivid and accessible fashion.” - Professor Malcolm Hill, Glasgow School of Social Work, UK

Adoption is an extremely complex and emotionally demanding process for all those involved. This book explores the emotional experience of adoption from a psychoanalytic perspective, and demonstrates how psychoanalytic understanding and treatment can contribute to thinking about and working with adopted children and their families. The Emotional Experience of Adoption explains and accounts for the emotional and psychological complexities involved for child, parents and professionals in adoption. It will be of interest and relevance to anyone involved at a personal level in the adoption process or professionals working in the fields of adoption, social work, child mental health, foster care and family support.

Independent Psychoanalytic Approaches with Children and Adolescents

Edited by Ann Horne, senior member of the British Association of Psychotherapists, and Monica Lanyado, training supervisor at the British Association of Psychotherapists

New Edition!

The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Psychoanalytic Approaches Second Edition Edited by Monica Lanyado, training supervisor at the British Association of Psychotherapists, UK, and Ann Horne, Senior member of the British Association of Psychotherapists This updated edition of The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy: Psychoanalytic Approaches reflects the many changes in the profession. It includes:

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 multiprofessional 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


new and forthcoming www.routledgementalhealth.com and why. Contributors to the three parts – ‘Assessment’, ‘Overlaps’, ‘Consultation and Beyond’ – provide a variety of clinical illustrations as they describe a range of approaches and settings in the tasks of both assessment and consultation, ranging from the light impact of the analyst’s presence in the grief of post – 9/11 New York to the call to political potency of ‘Beyond consultation’. This book will help both new and experienced Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists re-examine their role and function in the team and in the outside world, and will also be of interest to specialist health workers, educational psychologists and those wanting to explore more Winnicottian approaches to therapeutic work.

This most welcome publication presents a variety of sophisticated, comprehensive and well-rounded research studies illustrating different ways of investigating this complex field. A really enlightening book!”

- Anne-Marie Sandler, Psychoanalyst, British Institute of Psychoanalysis

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. Recent developments in therapeutic work with children, including the increased focus on evidence-based practice, make research a much higher priority in the field than ever before. With this increasing significance, a whole new generation of clinicians are required to become familiar and competent with research methods and research literature. Child Psychotherapy and Research will be a vital resource for anyone involved in research and training related to psychotherapy and child mental health, as well as of great interest to a range of mental health professionals.

Promises, Oaths, and Vows On the Psychology of Promising Herbert J. Schlesinger, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, USA

“Herbert Schlesinger has long been a psychoanalytic clinician and theoretician whose wisdom has been valued by psychoanalysts everywhere. As in all of Schlesinger’s books, clinical pearls abound. 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.” - Glen O. Gabbard, American Journal of Psychiatry 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 (or vow or threat) when there seems

30

to be no personal advantage in doing so, and even when harm can be predicted? How do we know when a promise is offered seriously to be taken at face value, and how do we understand that another is only a polite gesture, not to be taken seriously? 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 out of fear that, once made, the utterance would take on a life of its own and could never be taken back.

Relational Theory and the Practice of Psychotherapy Paul L. Wachtel, City University of New York, USA “We have needed a book like this. Wachtel has artfully charted the sea change from classical to intersubjective formulations and has made clear what the relational turn means for clinicians... This book will become a classic; it belongs in the libraries of therapists of all orientations.”

- Nancy McWilliams, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA

This important book explores a new direction in psychoanalytic thought that can enable therapists of any orientation to better understand and help their patients. Relational psychoanalysis diverges in key ways from the assumptions and therapeutic practices that have traditionally characterized psychoanalysis. At the same time, it preserves, and even extends, the depth of understanding of human experience and psychological conflict that has always been the

Relating to Self-Harm and Suicide

“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

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 selfharm, 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. Relating to Self-Harm and Suicide will be helpful to psychoanalytic therapists, analysts and mental health professionals wanting to integrate psychoanalytic ideas into their work with self-harmers and the suicidal.

of exploration of enactment. This will be of great importance and interest to seasoned practitioners as well as those in training.” - Phil Mollon,

Psychoanalyst (British Psychoanalytical Society), Psychotherapist (Tavistock Society), and Clinical Psychologist

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, how trauma enactment can affect the therapeutic relationship and how both therapist and client can use it to positive effect.

The Gendered Unconscious Can Gender Discourses Subvert Psychoanalysis? Louise Gyler, in private practice, Sydney, Australia 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. Contents: Introduction: The Sex Question, Psychoanalysis and Feminism. Concepts, Values and Assumptions: Freud and Klein. Contemporary Kleinian Clinical Developments.

Embodiment: Creative Imagination in Medicine, Art and Travel sets out Robert Bosnak’s practice of embodied imagination and demonstrates how he actually works with dreams and memories in groups. The book discusses various approaches to dreams, body and imagination, and combines this with a Jungian, neurobiological, relational and cultural analysis. The author’s fascination with dreams, the most absolute form of embodied imagination, has caused him to travel all over the world. From his research he concludes that while dreaming everyone everywhere experiences dreams as embodied events in time and space while the dreamer is convinced of being awake; it is after waking into our specific cultural stories about dreaming that the widely differing attitudes towards dreams arise. By taking dreaming reality, not our waking interpretation of it, as the model for imagination, this book creates a paradigm shock and produces methods which can be applied in a wide variety of cultural settings. 2007: 152pp. Hb: 978-0-415-40433-4: £55.00/$90.00 Pb: 978-0-415-40434-1: £18.99/$28.95

The Dream Experience A Systematic Exploration Milton Kramer, School of Medicine, New York University, USA “Milton Kramer’s book is a comprehensive assessment of dream research over the past fifty years...

In Freud’s Art – Psychoanalysis Retold Janet Sayers provides a refreshing new introduction to psychoanalysis by retelling its story through art. She does this by bringing together experts from psychoanalysis, art history, and art education to show how art and psychoanalysis illuminate each other. Freud’s Art begins with major founders of psychoanalysis – Freud, Jung, Spielrein and Klein. It then details art-minded developments of their ideas by Adrian Stokes, Jacques Lacan, Marion Milner, Anton Ehrenzweig, Donald Winnicott, and Wilfred Bion before concluding with the recent theories of Jean Laplanche and Julia Kristeva. The result is a book which highlights the importance of psychoanalysis, together with painting and the visual arts, to understanding the centrality of visual imagery, fantasy, nightmares and dreams to all of us, artists and non-artists alike. 2007: 240pp. Hb: 978-0-415-41567-5: £60.00/$99.00 Pb: 978-0-415-41568-2: £22.99/$36.95

The Academic Face of Psychoanalysis Papers in Philosophy, the Humanities, and the British Clinical Tradition Edited by Louise Braddock, Girton College, Cambridge, UK, and Michael Lacewing, Heythrop College, University of London, UK

Ever since Freud, psychoanalysts have explored the connections between psychoanalysis and literature and psychoanalysis and philosophy, while literary criticism, social science and philosophy have all reflected on and made use of ideas from psychoanalytic theory. The Academic Face of Psychoanalysis presents contributions from these fields and gives the reader an insight into different understandings and applications of psychoanalytic theory. Louise Braddock and Michael Lacewing successfully bring these contributions together with an in-depth introduction that allows the reader to explore the connections between the different disciplines.

The Psychodynamic Image

John D. Sutherland on Self in Society Edited by Jill Savege Scharff, Georgetown University Medical School, USA “Dr. Scharff’s work is highly readable and constitutes the most important contribution to the literature about a very important figure in late twentieth century psychoanalysis. I recommend it for all mental health professionals.” - James S. Grotstein, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA, USA

The Psychodynamic Image is the first selection of John D. Sutherland’s major papers. It provides an overview of the development of his thought on self and society and reveals the extent of his contribution to the field of mental health. Jill Savege Scharff introduces Sutherland’s most important and influential essays. These reflect his range as a theoretician, moving easily from the intrapsychic to the interpersonal level, building bridges between points of view and integrating psychoanalytic and social theories. Sutherland’s work calls for changes at the individual level through understanding conflicts and unconscious processes as aspects of parts of the self in interaction. He inspires respect and understanding of the self and its drive toward autonomy. These papers push the boundaries of psychoanalytic thinking and succeed in demonstrating the relevance of psychoanalysis to the wider society. They will be of great interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, counsellors and social workers. Contents: Introduction. Becoming and Being a Person. The Conceptual

The Matrix and Meaning of Character guides the reader into an awareness of the archetypal depths that underlie character structures, presenting an original developmental model in which current analytic theories are synthesised. The authors examine nine character structures, animating them with fairy tales, mythic images and case material, creating a bridge between the traditional language of psychopathology and the universal realm of image and symbol. This book will appeal to all analytical psychologists, psychoanalysts and psychotherapists who want to strengthen their clinical expertise. It will help clinicians to extend their clinical insights beyond a strictly behavioural, medical or cognitive approach, revealing the potential of the human spirit.

Dire Emotions and Lethal Behaviours Eclipse of the Life Instinct Charles Stewart, in private practice, California, USA

“Charles Stewart’s... ideas about innate affects are very close to the ways in which we experience life – through the emotions... his detailed explanations of how the crisis affects of fear, anguish, anger and shame/contempt weave together to create the behaviours the world has to come both to expect and to dread, is an exemplary demonstration of public psychology in action. This profoundly useful book will appeal to the clinical professions, to educators, and to the general reader.” - Andrew Samuels, University of Essex, UK Dire Emotions and Lethal Behaviours explores the primary motivational system in human beings. Based on the work of C. G. Jung, James Hillman, Louis Stewart and Silvan Tomkins, Charles Stewart investigates the psychology of the innate affects, with a focus towards the emotional motivation of adolescents and young adults who have killed others, themselves, or both. Illustrated throughout with case studies of individuals who have committed homicide, suicide, or both, Dire Emotions and Lethal Behaviours aims to discover the emotional motivations for such behaviours so that through education and psychological treatment, such tragic outcomes can be prevented.

Guilt and Its Vicissitudes Psychoanalytic Reflections on Morality Judith M. Hughes, University of California, San Diego, USA

“... 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.” - Ronald C. Naso, Psychologist – Psychoanalyst

Guilt and Its Vicissitudes: Psychoanalytic Reflections on Morality focuses on the way Melanie Klein and successive generations of 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. At the same time he reconceptualized guilt: he thought of it not only as conscious, but as unconscious as well, and it was the unconscious sense of guilt that became a particular concern of the discipline he was founding. As Klein saw it, his work merely pointed the way. Judith M. Hughes argues that Klein and contemporary Kleinians went on to provide a more consistent and comprehensive psychological account of moral development. Hughes demonstrates both a detailed knowledge of the major figures in post-war British psychoanalysis, and a keen sensitivity to the way

The Concept of Analytic Contact The Kleinian Approach to Reaching the Hard to Reach Patient Robert Waska, in private practice, San Anselmo, California, USA

“Robert Waska is a new and promising American voice in the literature on Kleinian theory and practice and also on the psychoanalytic treatment of the difficult patient. Utmostly he encourages us to “think analytically” while treating any patient no matter how infrequently we see them or how ill they may be. This work also presents us with a studious review and amplification of Kleinian theory and technique.” - James Grotstein The Concept of Analytic Contact presents practitioners with new ways to assist the often severely disturbed patients that come to see them in both private and institutional settings. In this book Robert Waska outlines the use of psychoanalysis as a method of engagement that can be utilised with or without the addition of multiple weekly visits and the analytic couch. The chapters in this book follow a wide spectrum of cases and clinical situations where hard to reach patients are provided with the best opportunity for health and healing through the establishment of analytic contact. 2007: 264pp. Hb: 978-0-415-42291-8: £55.00/$90.00 Pb: 978-0-415-42292-5: £21.99/$34.95

The Danger of Change The Kleinian Approach with Patients Who Experience Progress as Trauma Robert Waska, in private practice, San Anselmo, California, USA

Confusing clinical standoffs, loyalty to selfdestruction and abrupt terminations are challenging and under-examined problems for the modern psychoanalytic practitioner. The Danger of Change is a timely book that addresses the so-called resistant patient so many clinicians are familiar with. Robert Waska blends theory based on Melanie Klein’s classical stance with the more contemporary Freudian/Kleinian school, to demonstrate how to understand patients that are resistant to progress. 2006: 272pp. Hb: 978-0-415-38584-8: £50.00/$100.00 Pb: 978-0-415-38585-5: £21.99/$34.95

Melanie Klein is one of the few analysts whose body of work has inspired sociologists, philosophers, religious scholars, literary critics and political theorists, all attracted to the cross-fertilisation of her ideas.

The contributors situate Klein within the history of the psychoanalytic movement, investigate her key theoretical and clinical advances, and look at how her thought has informed contemporary perspectives in the behavioural sciences and humanities. 2006: 248pp. Hb: 978-1-58391-750-3: £55.00/$90.00 Pb: 978-1-58391-751-0: £22.99/$35.95

Mothers and Daughters and the Origins of Female Subjectivity Jane Van Buren, in private practice, California, USA “In reintroducing mother’s body – and the daughter’s body into her discourse, Dr Van Buren has added a badly needed dimension to our understanding of why female subjectivity has languished so long in the shadows.” - James S. Grotstein, From the Foreword

Mothers and Daughters and the Origins of Female Subjectivity challenges the theory of the Oedipus complex, which permeates psychoanalytic theory, psychology, semiotics and cultural studies. The book focuses on the re-examination of women’s development through the theories of primitive mental states. Women’s subjectivity has been profoundly limited by continuing anxieties about the mother’s body. Jane Van Buren describes how women are gradually escaping the curse of inferiority and finding a voice, enabling the mother to provide their daughters with a legacy of rightful agency over their bodies and minds. Drawing on the theories of Klein, Bion and Winnicott, and incorporating recent developments in psychobiology, this book provides a novel approach to subjects including the dreams, myths and phantasies of individuals, the nature of mother and daughter relationships, sexuality, pregnancy, menstruation and the idea of the mother’s body as problematic and dangerous. This interdisciplinary investigation into curtailed female subjectivity and its many ramifications in society, culture and individual mental growth will be of great interest to all practising psychoanalysts, and those studying psychoanalytic theory and gender studies.

Clinical Journeys Philip M. Bromberg

Psychoanalytic Quarterly

In Awakening the Dreamer: Clinical Journeys, Philip Bromberg continues the illuminating explorations into dissociation and clinical process begun in Standing in the Spaces (1998). Bromberg is among our most gifted clinical writers, especially in his unique ability to record peripheral variations in relatedness – those subtle, split-second changes that capture the powerful workings of dissociation and chart the changing self-states that analyst and patient bring to the moment. Laced with Bromberg’s characteristic honesty, humor, and thoughtfulness, these essays elegantly attest to the mind’s reliance on dissociation, in both normal and pathological variants, in the ongoing effort to maintain self-organization. Awakening the Dreamer, no less than Standing in the Spaces, is destined to become a permanent part of the literature on therapeutic process and change.

“The Editors are to be congratulated on bringing together a stimulating range of perspectives on an important and complex subject.” - Morris Nitsun, author, The Group as an Object of Desire

Envy, Competition and Gender provides a unique perspective on gender difference in relation to envy and competitiveness, reframing and de-demonizing these difficult emotions and revealing their potentially creative power. Incorporating perspectives from psychology, psychiatry, social work, sociology and education, this book provides a comprehensive overview of theories and ideas on the links between gender, envy and competition. 2007: 272pp. Hb: 978-1-58391-748-0: £60.00/$110.00 Pb: 978-1-58391-749-7: £22.99/$39.95

Standing in the Spaces Essays on Clinical Process Trauma and Dissociation Philip M. Bromberg

“Every psychoanalyst and psychotherapist should read Standing in the Spaces in order to achieve a full understanding of what it is they do every day. The scholarship is remarkable; the style elegant and readable; the content imaginative, original, and wide-ranging; the clinical presentations tremendously evocative... Philip Bromberg is clearly an exceptionally gifted clinician as well as one of the outstanding theorists of our time.” - Peter Fonagy, Freud Memorial Professor, University of London, UK

Early in these essays, Bromberg contemplates how one might engage schizoid detachment within an interpersonal perspective. To his surprise, he finds that the road to the patient’s disavowed experiences most frequently passes through the analyst’s internal conversation, as multiple configurations of self-other interaction, previously dissociated, are set loose first in the analyst and then played out in the interpersonal field. Bromberg’s essays are delightfully unpredictable, as they strive to keep the reader continually abreast of how words can and cannot capture the subtle shifts in relatedness that characterize the clinical process. 2001: 376pp. Pb: 978-0-88163-356-6: £29.95/$45.00

This book helped me think more clearly to develop an attitude of interest, acceptance and possibility – even for the most despairing of couples.” - Lynne Jacobs, Co-founder, Pacific Gestalt 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 this 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.

Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis

A Question of Technique

Independent Psychoanalytic Approaches with Children and Adolescents Edited by Monica Lanyado, training supervisor at the British Association of Psychotherapists, UK, and Ann Horne, Senior member of the British Association of Psychotherapists

Containment and Reciprocity shows how the psychoanalytic concept of containment and the child development concept of reciprocity can be used together to inform clinical work with young children and their families. Using extracts of mother/child and therapist/child interactions, Hazel Douglas explores, for the first time, the relationship between these concepts, and shows how they underpin the quality of an attachment. 2007: 184pp. Hb: 978-0-415-39697-4: £50.00/$90.00 Pb: 978-0-415-39698-1: £18.99/$33.95

Mother-Infant Attachment and Psychoanalysis argues that shame can develop during the first six months of life through an unreflected look in the mother’s eyes, and that this shame is then internalised by the infant and reverberates through its later life. The author further expands on this concept of the look through a powerful and extensive study of the concept of the Evil Eye. 2003: 256pp. Pb: 978-1-58391-288-1: £20.99/$32.95

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy From Patrick Casement, Psychoanalyst and therapist in full-time private practice

Learning from Life

Becoming a Psychoanalyst Patrick Casement “In Learning from Life, Patrick Casement engages with his readers even more personally than in his previous writings. The thoughtfulness, wit, and expressive talent for which he is noted are particularly evident in this book... this account of personal maturation as a psychotherapist will strike many responsive chords.” - Nancy McWilliams, Rutgers University, USA

In his fourth and most personal book, Patrick Casement attempts to understand what he has learned from life, sharing a wide range of those experiences that have helped shape the analyst he has become. This unique book gives a fascinating insight into fundamental questions concerning the acquisition of analytic wisdom and how personal experiences shape the analyst’s approach to clinical work. It will be of great interest to all psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists. 2006: 224pp. Hb: 978-0-415-40314-6: £50.00/$90.00 Pb: 978-0-415-39931-9: £19.99/$31.95

Advanced Hypnotherapy

“The scope of Advanced Hypnotherapy is both wide and deep. These leaders in the fields of hypnosis research and psychotherapy write in a lucid, engaging style. The book advances our knowledge of hypnosis in psychotherapy in a fashion that will fascinate both new psychotherapists and experienced clinicians.” - David Spiegel, Stanford University School of Medicine, USA This book focuses on tested hypnoanalytic techniques, with stepby-step procedures for integrating hypnosis into psychoanalytic processes. In its examination of the latest thinking, research, and techniques, the book discusses historical origins of hypnosis as well as how to apply it to current events, such as using hypnosis in the treatment of trauma with soldiers coming out of the war in Iraq. The text shows how hypnosis can be combined with psychoanalysis to make it possible to understand the subjective world of clients. Its accessible nature, rich detail, and significant updates make the book an invaluable resource for the professional who wishes to incorporate hypnosis into his or her practice.

Coming into Mind The Mind-Brain Relationship: A Jungian Clinical Perspective Margaret Wilkinson, in private practice, North Derbyshire, UK “Margaret Wilkinson’s book offers a beautifully lucid overview of contemporary neuroscience and demonstrates its crucial relevance to our clinical practice and our understanding of the relational roots of the development of mind and self-awareness.” - Jean Knox, Editor-in-chief of

the Journal of Analytical Psychology

Contemporary neuroscience has a valuable contribution to make to understanding the mind-brain. Coming into Mind aims to bridge the gap between theory and clinical practice, demonstrating how awareness of the insights gained from neuroscience is essential if the psychological therapies are to maintain scientific integrity in the twenty-first century. Margaret Wilkinson introduces the clinician to those aspects of neuroscience which are most relevant to their practice, guiding the reader through topics such as memory, brain plasticity, neural connection and the emotional brain. 2006: 248pp. Hb: 978-1-58391-708-4: £50.00/$90.00 Pb: 978-1-58391-709-1: £21.99/$34.95
