1 Editor: Emma Letley Written in 1936 as a companion piece to A Life of One’s Own, An Experiment in Leisure further charts Marion Milner’s illuminating and rewarding investigation into how we lead our lives. Instead of drawing on her daily diary, she turns to memory images – images not only from her own life but also from books, mythology, travel and religion that seem to point to a suspension of ordinary, everyday awareness. An Experiment in Leisure Marion Milner New Introduction by Maud Ellmann March 2011: 224pp. Hb: 978-0-415-55066-6: £40.00/$60.00 Pb: 978-0-415-55067-3: £12.99/$19.95

How often do we ask ourselves, ‘What will make me happy? What do I really want from life?’ In A Life of One’s Own Marion Milner explores these questions and embarks on a seven year personal journey to discover what it is that makes her happy.

Following on from A Life of One’s Own and An Experiment in Leisure, Eternity’s Sunrise explores Marion Milner’s way of keeping a diary. Recording small private moments, she builds up a store of ‘bead memories’. A carved duck, a sprig of asphodel, moments captured in her travels in Greece, Kashmir and Israel, circus clowns, a painting – each makes up a ‘bead’ that has a warmth or glow which comes in response to asking the simple question: What is the most important thing that happened yesterday?

Psychoanalysis in a New Key Book Series

psychoanalysis book series

Psychoanalysis 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. Page 13

Series Editor: Donnel B. Stern The most important contribution of a psychoanalytic book is the communication of something that nudges the reader’s grasp of clinical theory and practice in an unexpected direction. Psychoanalysis in a New Key Book Series creates a deliberate focus on innovative and unsettling clinical thinking and has married psychoanalysis with dissociation, trauma theory, sociology, and criminology. Page 9

Psychoanalytic Inquiry Book Series Series Editor: Joseph D. Lichtenberg The Psychoanalytic Inquiry Book Series presents a diversity of subjects within a diversity of approaches to those subjects. Under the editorship of Joseph Lichtenberg, in collaboration with Melvin Bornstein and the editorial board of Psychoanalytic Inquiry, the volumes in this series strike a balance between research, theory, and clinical application. Page 10

Routledge Classics Series 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. Page 19

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 Winnicott

m me

Edited by Lesley Caldwell, University College London, UK, and Angela Joyce, Anna Freud Centre, London, UK “Re-investing in Winnicott through the scholarship and clinical acumen of two present day psychoanalysts and reading him through the data and the interpretation their text affords, offers the reader the benefit of a serious and impressive contribution, not, in my view, attempted so wide-rangingly or so comprehensively before.” - Helen Taylor Robinson, From the Preface

Reading Winnicott brings together a selection of papers by the psychoanalyst and paediatrician Donald Winnicott, providing an insight into his work and charting its impact on the well being of mothers, babies, children and families.

Areas of discussion include: • the relational environment and the place of infantile sexuality • aggression and destructiveness • illusion and transitional phenomena • theory and practice of psychoanalysis of adults and children. As such Reading Winnicott will be essential reading for all students wanting to learn more about Winnicott’s theories and their impact on psychoanalysis and the wider field of mental health.

Reading French Psychoanalysis Edited by Dana Birksted-Breen, and Sara Flanders, both Training and Supervising Analysts, British Psychoanalytical Society, UK, and Alain Gibeault, Training and Supervising Analyst, Paris Psychoanalytical Society, France

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. 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. selected Contents: Birksted-Breen, Flanders, General Introduction. Part I: History of Psychoanalysis in France. Part II: The Pioneers and Their Legacy. Part III: The Setting and the Process of Psychoanalysis. Part IV: Phantasy and Representation.

Insight Essays on Psychoanalytic Knowing Jorge L. Ahumada, Training Analyst, Argentine Psychoanalytic Association


Projective Identification The Fate of a Concept Edited by Elizabeth Spillius, Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst, British Psychoanalytical Society, UK, and Edna O’Shaughnessy, British Psychoanalytical Society, London, UK In this book Elizabeth Spillius and Edna O’Shaughnessy explore the development of the concept of projective identification, which had important antecedents in the work of Freud and others, but was given a specific name and definition by Melanie Klein. They describe Klein’s published and unpublished views on the topic, and then consider the way the concept has been variously described, evolved, accepted, rejected and modified by analysts of different schools of thought and in various locations – Britain, Western Europe, North America and Latin America. The authors believe that this unusually widespread interest in a particular concept and its varied ‘fate’ have occurred not only because of beliefs about its clinical usefulness in the psychoanalytic setting but also because projective identification is a universal aspect of human interaction and communication.

The New Library of Psychoanalysis Series

This book explores the clinical processes of psychoanalysis by charting modern developments in logic and applying them to the study of insight. Offering an epistemic approach to clinical psychoanalysis this book places value on the clinical interpretations of both the analysand and analyst and engages in a critique on purely linguistic approaches to psychoanalysis, which forsake crucial dimensions of clinical practice.

It is an invaluable and timely monograph on one of the most important, if not the most important, paradigm changes in analytic technique to date. His work is quantitatively encyclopedic in its range and qualitatively is pleasingly and eloquently written.” - James S. Grotstein, From the Foreword

Intersubjective Processes and the Unconscious looks at how the minds of the therapist and the patient interact with each other in a profound and unconscious way: a concept first described by Freud. 6

The Bi-Personal Field: Experiences in Child Analysis 1999: 232pp. Pb: 978-0-415-21180-2: £23.95/$42.50

This book expands Freud’s ideas further and examines how these have been greatly elaborated by contributions from the Kleinian School as well as from the work of Bion. It explores how, together, patient and therapist co-create a narrative through these unconscious intersubjective processes. The author offers in-depth clinical examples and case vignettes to illustrate the application of these principles when working with trauma, countertransference dreams and supervision.

John Steiner, Training Analyst, British Psychoanalytical Society, UK Foreword by Roy Schafer “John Steiner continues the explorations he began in his excellent Psychic Retreats. In the course of fulfilling his aims, he has also summed up and enriched contemporary insight into many other aspects of the work of psychoanalysis and has laid out a Kleinian approach to resistance that is up-to-date, inclusive, and detailed.” - Roy Schafer, From the Foreword Seeing and Being Seen examines the themes that surface when considering clinical situations where patients feel stuck and where a failure to develop impedes the progress of analysis. This book analyses the anxieties and challenges confronted by patients as they begin to emerge from the protection of psychic retreats. Contents: Schafer, Foreword. Introduction. Part I: Embarrassment, Shame, and Humiliation. The Anxiety of Being Seen: Narcissistic Pride and Narcissistic Humiliation. Gaze, Dominance, and Humiliation in the Schreber Case.

Giuseppe Civitarese, psychiatrist, full member of the Italian Psychoanalytic Society (SPI) and the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA) “Not many authors would be able to negotiate a path through this complex, progressively expanding universe while at the same time maintaining a holographic and multidimensional vision of psychoanalysis. Giuseppe Civitarese is surely one of the few – the very few – who have this capability.” - Antonino Ferro, From the Foreword

The Intimate Room provides an original exploration of psychoanalytic thought, showing how contemporary psychoanalysis seeks to answer the challenges raised by today’s post-modern culture. Offering a deeply personal and insightful reading of Bion, this book acts as a stimulating guide to the development of the theory of the analytic field and both its technical and clinical implications. Allowing the reader to engage with the inner space of analysis, The Intimate Room will be of interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and all those with an interest in the field of psychoanalysis. It will also be a useful tool in psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic work on a day-to-day basis.

Betweenity A Discussion of the Concept of Borderline Judy Gammelgaard, Psychoanalyst, Denmark Translated by Karen MacLean and Caitlin Madden

From its inception psychoanalysis has sought to effect a cure through the therapeutic relationship between analyst and analysand. Betweenity looks at what happens when the established framework of the psychoanalytic process is challenged by those with borderline personalities. In this book Judy Gammelgaard looks at how we might understand the analysand who is unable to engage with therapy and how we might bring them to a point where they are able to do so. This book will be essential reading for all psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and practitioners wishing to learn more about working with borderline personality structures and disorders.

The Psychotic Wavelength A Psychoanalytic Perspective for Psychiatry Richard Lucas, was a consultant psychiatrist at St. Ann’s Hospital, London, UK, and a member of the British Psychoanalytical Society, UK

“In this admirably lucid book Dr Richard Lucas demonstrates that psychoanalysis has much to contribute to the treatment of seriously disturbed and disturbing psychiatric patients... I sincerely hope it will be read by a wide, professional, national and international audience and will become essential reading for junior psychiatrists and nursing staff in particular.” - Carine Minne, From the Preface


10% D I SCOU NT:

The Psychotic Wavelength provides a psychoanalytical framework for clinicians to use in everyday general psychiatric practice and discusses how psychoanalytic ideas can be of great value when used in the treatment of seriously disturbed and disturbing psychiatric patients with psychoses, including both schizophrenia and the affective disorders. In this book Richard Lucas suggests that when clinicians are faced with psychotic patients, the primary concern should be to make sense of what is happening during their breakdown. He refers to this as tuning into the psychotic wavelength, a process that allows clinicians to distinguish between, and appropriately address, the psychotic and non-psychotic parts of the personality. He argues that if clinicians can find and identify the psychotic wavelength, they can more effectively help the patient to come to terms with the realities of living with a psychotic disorder. The Psychotic Wavelength is an essential resource for anyone working with disturbed psychiatric patients. 2009: 360pp. Hb: 978-0-415-48468-8: £65.00/$105.00 Pb: 978-0-415-48469-5: £23.95/$37.50

Melanie Klein in Berlin Her First Psychoanalyses of Children Claudia Frank, in private practice, Stuttgart, Germany Edited and with a Preface by Elizabeth Spillius, Training and Supervising 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 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. 2009: 504pp. Hb: 978-0-415-48497-8: £75.00/$120.00 Pb: 978-0-415-48498-5: £24.99/$42.50

Working with Unformulated Experience, Dissociation, and Enactment

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 to communicate to the analyst, not only in order to be understood by him, but also in order to affect him. 2009: 288pp. Hb: 978-0-415-47934-9: £60.00/$90.00 Pb: 978-0-415-47935-6: £23.95/$37.50

Change in Psychoanalysis An Analyst’s Reflections on the Therapeutic Relationship Chris Jaenicke, in private practice, Berlin, Germany In this clinically rich and deeply personal book, Chris Jaenicke demonstrates that the therapeutic process involves change in both the patient and the analyst, and that therapy will not have a lasting effect until the inevitability and depth of the analyst’s involvement in the intersubjective field is better understood. In other words, in order to change, we must allow ourselves to be changed. This can happen within the sessions themselves, as one grasps the influence of and decenters from one’s own subjectivity, with cumulative effects over the course of the treatment. Thus the process, limitations, and cure of psychotherapy are cocreated, without displacing the asymmetrical nature of roles and responsibility. Essentially, beyond the theories and techniques, it is the specificity of our subjectivity as it interacts with the patient’s subjectivity which plays the central role in the therapeutic process.

Persons in Context The Challenge of Individuality in Theory and Practice Edited by Roger Frie, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada, and William J. Coburn, Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis, Los Angeles, USA

In contemporary forms of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, the turn to contextualism has led to new ways of thinking and practice that have dispensed with the notion of the isolated individual. The recognition that human experience is fundamentally immersed in the world can make the question of individuality seem confusing, even anachronistic. This volume of original essays considers the lived experience of individuality within clinical, developmental, and cultural contexts. Drawing on a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, the contributors develop the notion of the person in context and provide unique perspectives on the nature of individuality.

Opening by placing motivational systems theory within a contemporary dynamic systems theory, Lichtenberg, Lachmann, and Fosshage then respond to critics of motivational systems theory. The authors present revisions to their approach to the original five motivational systems, adding two more: an affiliative and a caregiving motivational system. The authors go on to suggest, using ideas garnered from complexity theory and fractals, that motivational systems theory can help us understand how a continuity of self can be maintained despite near-constant fluctuations in interpersonal relations.

These papers, many of which are unpublished, articulate the evolution of his thinking along the road toward an emancipatory psychoanalysis.

From Classical to Contemporary Psychoanalysis

Psychoanalytic Inquiry Book Series

A Critique and Integration Morris N. Eagle, Adelphi University, New York, USA “As this superb text moves the reader from classical to contemporary psychoanalysis, Eagle’s scholarly voice displays his mastery of the history of psychoanalysis. It is a real tour d’horizon for the education of students and teachers alike.” - Professor Dr. Horst Kächele, International Psychoanalytic University, Berlin, Germany

The landscape of psychoanalysis has changed, at times dramatically, in the hundred or so years since Freud first began to think and write about it. Freudian theory and concepts have risen, fallen, and evolved in the hands and minds of analysts the world over, leaving us with a theoretically pluralistic (yet threateningly multifarious) diffusion of psychoanalytic viewpoints. To help make sense of it all, Morris Eagle sets out to critically reevaluate fundamental psychoanalytic concepts of theory and practice. He reintroduces notions of the mind, object relations, psychopathology, and treatment from first Freudian and then contemporary psychoanalytic perspectives. However, there is an underlying emphasis on identification and integration of converging themes, reemphasized and expanded in a final chapter. Clinical vignettes and relevant empirical research are used throughout, thus basic concepts are reexamined in the light of more contemporary developments. Contents: Part I: Freudian Theory. Basic Paradigm of Freudian Theory. Conceptions of Mind in Freudian Theory. Conceptions of Object Relations in Freudian Theory. Conceptions of Psychopathology in Freudian Theory.

Unconscious Fantasy and the Interpretive Process


Jean-Georges Schimek, was at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR) New York City, USA

A Relational Psychoanalytic Approach to Couples Therapy

Edited by Deborah L. Browning, New York University, USA Foreword by Alan Bass “Schimek’s thoughtful explorations of the most fundamental and still controversial ideas in psychoanalysis have always commanded my deepest respect and interest. His contributions retain special importance in these days of radical change that is often based more on rhetorical force than the profound and subtle scholarship to be found in these pages. The appearance of this book is most welcome.” - Roy Schafer, author, Tragic Knots in Psychoanalysis

Memory, Myth, and Seduction reveals the development and evolution of Jean-Georges Schimek’s thinking on unconscious fantasy and the interpretive process derived from a close reading of Freud as well as contemporary psychoanalysis. Contributing richly to North American psychoanalytic thought, Schimek challenges local views from the perspective of continental discourse. A practicing psychoanalyst, teacher, and consummate Freud scholar, Schimek sought to clarify Freud’s concepts and theories and to disentangle complexities borne of inconsistencies in Freud’s assumptions and expositions. Skillfully arranged and carefully edited by Deborah Browning and including a foreword by Alan Bass, this collection of Schimek’s published and unpublished papers will be of interest to practicing psychoanalysts, psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapists, and students of the history of ideas and philosophy who have a particular interest in fantasy, interpretation, and Freud.

relational perspectives book series

Ringstrom’s relational approach to couples therapy is based on three themes: actualization of self-experience in the context of a committed, long-term intimate relationship; mutual recognition of each partner’s subjective experience; and the relationship itself having “a mind of its own.” These themes are further elaborated in six nonlinear steps, each presented as a whole chapter with clinical illustrations and concluding with practical principle guidelines for their employment in therapy. These steps include: addressing the therapist’s attunement to subjectivities; the assertion of each partner’s equal “rights”; the exploration of the developmental history of each partner; the examination of conflictual pasts and subsequent maladjustments; the enrichment of self-realization; and the facilitation of mutual attunement and personal growth.

The Return of the Embodied Analyst From Reich to Relationality Steven Knoblauch, New York University, USA, and Jon Sletvold, Norwegian Character Analytic Institute, Norway This book captures a pivotal moment in the development of the relational tradition: the recognition of the impact of nonverbal embodied dimensions of communication on the transference and countertransference matrix in the therapeutic relationship. The authors take a three-pronged approach. Building on the early work of Sigmund Freud and Wilhelm Reich, part one traces the philosophical, developmental, and neuroscientific investigations into the embodied aspects of experience which shape analytic interaction. Part two offers clinically-focused illustrations for an expanded model of clinical attention beyond the verbal realm, with both micro and macro focus. Going even further, part three presents ways in which psychoanalytic training can be expanded and responsive to this wider attention to nonverbal interaction.

With Culture in Mind Psychoanalytic Stories Edited by Muriel Dimen, New York University, USA This is a new kind of anthology. More conversation than collection, it locates the psychic and the social in clinical moments illuminating the analyst’s struggle to grasp a patient’s internal life as voiced through individual political, social, and material contexts. Each chapter is a single detailed case vignette in which aspects of race, gender, sexual orientation, heritage, ethnicity – elements of the sociopolitical matrix of culture – are brought to the fore in the transference-countertransference dimension, demonstrating how they affect the analytic encounter. Additionally, discussions by three senior analysts further deconstruct patients’ and analysts’ cultural embeddedness as illustrated in each chapter. Contents: Dimen, Introduction. Part I: The Social Third. Sheehy, Melissa: Lost in a Fog, or “How Difficult is This MOMMY Stuff, Anyway?” Hartman, Darren and Stephen: Erotic Interludes in Political Transference.

Understanding and Treating Dissociative Identity Disorder A Relational Approach Elizabeth F. Howell, International Society for the Study of Dissociation, USA Building on the comprehensive theoretical model of dissociation elegantly developed in The Dissociative Mind, Elizabeth Howell makes another invaluable contribution to the clinical understanding of dissociative states with Understanding and Treating Dissociative Identity Disorder. Howell, working within the realm of relational psychoanalysis, explicates a multifaceted approach to the treatment of this fascinating yet often misunderstood condition. Howell begins with an explication of dissociation theory and research that includes the dynamic unconscious, trauma theory, attachment, and neuroscience. She then discusses the identification and diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder before moving on to outline a phase-oriented treatment plan. Contents: Introduction.

Toward Mutual Recognition Relational Psychoanalysis and the Christian Narrative Marie T. Hoffman, Rosemead School of Psychology and Fuller Theological Seminary, New York, USA

In Toward Mutual Recognition, Marie T. Hoffman, coming from a Christian perspective, suggests that the current relational turn in psychoanalysis has been influenced by numerous theorists – analysts and philosophers alike – who were themselves shaped by an embedded Christian narrative. As a result, the redemptive concepts of incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection – central to the tenets of Christianity – can be traced to relational theories, emerging analogously in the transformative process of mutual recognition in the concepts of identification, surrender, and gratitude, a trilogy which she develops as forming the “path of recognition.” Each movement on this path of recognition is given thought-provoking, in-depth attention, utilizing the theoretical perspectives of Benjamin, Hegel, and Ricoeur. Contents: Introduction: Charting a Path Toward Mutual Recognition. Part I: Identification/Incarnation. The First Movement Toward Mutual Recognition: Theoretical Perspectives. Introducing Mandy: Clinical Perspectives. Identifying the Christian Narrative in Early Psychoanalysis: Historical Perspectives. Part II: Surrender/Crucifixion.

A Disturbance in the Field Essays in TransferenceCountertransference Engagement Steven H. Cooper, Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis, USA

“In every chapter of this lucid, deeply felt, thoughtful, and accessible book, Steven Cooper lays out the case that whatever clinical matter he is addressing is best understood by reference to multiple views... The result is far more significant and interesting than a simple eclecticism... This is a wise and mature book.” - Donnel Stern, Training and Supervising Analyst, William Alanson White Institute, USA

Eventually, the rigorous work of psychoanalysis will offer an opportunity to work through the most disturbing elements of a patient’s inner life as expressed and experienced by the analyst. Steven Cooper’s far-ranging essays try to locate some of the most ineffable types of situations analysts take up with their patients, such as the underlying grandiosity of self-criticism; too much congruence between what patients fantasize about and analysts wish to provide; and the importance of analyzing aggressive aspects of erotic transference. He also turns hostile transference/ countertransference phenomena inside-out to find out more about what patients are seeking and repudiating. Contents: Introduction: The Romance and Melancholia of Loving Psychoanalysis. The Grandiosity of Self-loathing: TransferenceCountertransference Dimensions. Privacy, Reverie, and the Analyst’s Ethical Imagination. An Elusive Aspect of the Analyst’s Relationship to Transference.

Uprooted Minds Surviving the Politics of Terror in the Americas Nancy Caro Hollander, Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies, USA

“Uprooted Minds inherits and develops psychoanalytical social psychology through a brilliant analysis of the historical roots of disturbances in the social matrices of several contemporary societies... Informative, challenging, disturbing, passionate, and goodhumored, I think it will inspire a new generation of psychoanalytical investigations of social dreaming.” - Christopher Bollas In our post-9/11 environment, our sense of relative security and stability as privileged subjects living in the heart of Empire has been profoundly shaken.

First Do No Harm The Paradoxical Encounters of Psychoanalysis, Warmaking, and Resistance Edited by Adrienne Harris, New York University, USA, and Steven Botticelli, City University of New York, USA

Good Enough Endings Breaks, Interruptions, and Terminations from Contemporary Relational Perspectives Edited by Jill Salberg, NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA

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

Invasive Objects Minds Under Siege Paul Williams, British Psychoanalytical Society, UK

“Paul Williams, in this beautifully written set of essays, manages to achieve something extraordinary: He succeeds in conveying the essential core of the psychoanalytic treatment of severe emotional disturbances... No one writing today brings to life as well as Williams the process of forging a genuine human connection with psychotic patients.” - Thomas H. Ogden, author, Rediscovering Psychoanalysis As the title suggests, the unifying thread of these papers is the investigation of serious mental disturbance, often characterized by the presence of intrusive and invasive thoughts and fantasies that originate in a traumatic past but which can colonize and destroy the rational mind. The diverse papers are grouped into two related sections. Part I is comprised of papers with a clinical orientation. In Part II, applied psychoanalytic thinking is integrated with Williams’ other professional passion, anthropology, in a paper that exemplifies generative thought through art, poetry, and tribal masks.

Utilizing examples from the clinically personal to the globally political, Sue Grand deconstructs the myth of the Hero – an externalized, larger-than-life personality who has the power to assuage our suffering while at the same time relieving us of the burdens of personal responsibility and social justice. In its place, she argues for the recognition of an ordinary hero, one who shares our fear and our flaws as well as our fortitude. As she grounds her thesis in clinical work, we meet combat veterans and children with imaginary saviors, the analyst who fails to discover her own personal hero and the patient with whom she reclaims it. But she also reaches out to the wider world, critiquing the Hero’s relation to war, terrorism, state-sponsored terror and genocide. 2009: 226pp. Hb: 978-0-88163-437-2: £60.00/$95.00 Pb: 978-0-88163-482-2: £22.95/$37.50

The Analyst in the Inner City Race, Class, and Culture Through a Psychoanalytic Lens Second Edition Neil Altman, NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, USA

“The Analyst in the Inner City shatters assumptions and brings penetrating light to our understanding of psychological life at the social margins... This groundbreaking work should be required reading in the mental health disciplines as well as social scientists working at the intersections of race, social class, and culture.” - Ricardo Ainslie, author, Long Dark Road: Bill King and Murder in Jasper

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, including a focus on “whiteness” which, he argues, is socially constructed in relation to “blackness.” However, he admits the inadequacy of such categorizations and proffers a more fluid view of the structure of race.

New Introduction by Maud Ellmann “[What does a woman want?] What is revolutionary […] is that the author makes herself the subject rather than the object of Freud’s notoriously chauvinistic question. Aware that her own wants have been distorted and obscured by expectations about ‘woman’ and the pressure to subordinate a woman’s wants to those of others, she strives to develop ‘a method for discovering one’s true likes and dislikes, for finding and setting up a standard of values that is truly one’s own and not a borrowed mass-produced ideal.’” - Maud Ellmann, From the New Introduction

Written in 1936 as a companion piece to A Life of One’s Own, An Experiment in Leisure further charts Marion Milner’s illuminating and rewarding investigation into how we lead our lives. Instead of drawing on her daily diary, she turns to memory images – images not only from her own life but also from books, mythology, travel and religion that seem to point to a suspension of ordinary, everyday awareness. From this condition of emptiness springs an increasing imaginative appreciation both of being alive and of the world we live in. Contents: Ellmann, New Introduction. Memories of Hobbies.

Marion Milner New Introduction by Rachel Bowlby “Unlike Woolf [in her book A Room of One’s Own], Milner doesn’t just tell you it would be nice to have one (of your own), or that women deserve one (of their own); it shows you, step by step, and in lovingly private detail, how to go about getting one – all by yourself, and without any need for special training or material resources – and what it might feel like to have one, moment by moment. It is an irresistible invitation.” - Rachel Bowlby, From the New Introduction How often do we ask ourselves, ‘What will make me happy? What do I really want from life?’ In A Life of One’s Own Marion Milner explores these questions and embarks on a seven year personal journey to discover what it is that makes her happy. On its first publication, W.H. Auden found the book ‘as exciting as a detective story’ and, as Milner searches out clues, the reader quickly becomes involved in the chase. Using her own personal diaries, kept over many years, she analyses moments of everyday life and discovers ways of being, of looking, of moving, that bring surprising joy – ways which can be embraced by anyone. With a new introduction by Rachel Bowlby this classic remains a great adventure in thinking and living and will be essential reading for all those interested in reflecting on the nature of their own happiness. Contents: Bowlby, New Introduction. Prefatory Note. Preface. First Questions. Keeping a Diary. Exploring the Hinterland. The Coming and Going of Delight. Searching for a Purpose. Searching for a Rule. Two Ways of Looking. Discovering that Thought can be Blind. Watching the Antics of Blind Thinking. The Escape from Blind Thinking. Fear of a Dragon. More Outcasts of Thought. Relaxing. Cart-Horse or Pegasus? Discovery of the ‘Other’. Retrospect. Epilogue.

Eternity’s Sunrise A Way of Keeping a Diary Marion Milner New Introduction by Hugh Haughton “The book is the culmination of Milner’s own literary journey, a final conjunction between her maverick take on psychoanalytic theory and her interest in art as it is created by or seen by people who are not ‘artists’, art historians or psycho-analysts. No-one can read the book, I think, without wondering about their own equivalent of Milner’s glass bead game or what mysteries lie concealed in the memories and souvenirs we bring back from our trips away from home and visits to galleries, as from our dreams.” - Hugh Haughton, From the New Introduction

Following on from A Life of One’s Own and An Experiment in Leisure, Eternity’s Sunrise explores Marion Milner’s way of



keeping a diary. Recording small private moments, she co builds up a store of ‘bead memories’. A carved duck, a sprig m me of asphodel, moments captured in her travels in Greece, Kashmir and Israel, circus clowns, a painting – each makes up a ‘bead’ that has a warmth or glow which comes in response to asking the simple question: What is the most important thing that happened yesterday?

From these beads – sacred, horrific, profane, funny – grows a sense of an ‘answering activity’, the result of turning one’s attention inwards to experience real joy. What Marion Milner conveys so vividly and inspirationally is her lifelong intention to live as completely as possible in the moment. Contents: Chronology. Introduction.

On Not Being Able to Paint Marion Milner New introduction by Janet Sayers “[This is a book] that has done so much over the years to bring about awareness of the interplay of inner and outer reality in art and in everyday life.” - Janet Sayers, From the Introduction

Milner’s great study, first published in 1950, discusses the nature of creativity and those forces which prevent its expression. In focusing on her own beginner’s efforts to draw and paint, she analyses not the mysterious and elusive ability of the genius but – as the title suggests – the all too common and distressing situation of ‘not being able’ to create. With a new introduction by Janet Sayers this edition of On Not Being Able to Paint brings the text to the present generation of readers in the fields of psychoanalysis, education and all those, specialist and general audiences alike, with an interest or involvement in the creative process and those impulses impeding it in many fields. Contents: Freud, Foreword. Introduction. Note to Second Edition. Sayers, New Introduction. Part I: The Emergence of the Free Drawings. What the Eye Likes. Being Separate and Being Together.

New Introduction by Adam Phillips

At once autobiographical and psychoanalytic, The Hands of the Living God, first published in 1969, provides a detailed case study of Susan who, during a 20-year long treatment, spontaneously discovers the capacity to do doodle drawings. An important focus of the book is the drawings themselves, 150 of which are reproduced in the text, and their deep unconscious perception of the battle between sanity and madness.

Christopher Bollas Introduction by Arne Jemstedt Preface by Adam Phillips This reader brings together a selection of seminal essays by Christopher Bollas such as “the fascist state of mind”, “the structure of evil,” and “the functions of history” that have established his position as one of the most significant cultural critics of our time. Included are classical papers that represent his psychoanalytical writings such as “the transformational object” and “psychic genera” that have renewed interest in unconscious creative processes as well as two recent essays, “character and interformality” and “the wisdom of the dream” that extend his work on aesthetics and the role of form in everyday life. The collection is aimed at those who are interested in the complexities of life, and the clear, accessible style of the book will make it appealing for anyone interested in the human experience and the human mind.

Elizabeth Bott Spillius, Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst, British Psychoanalytical Society, UK, Jane Milton, The Melanie Klein Trust, UK, Penelope Garvey, and Cyril Couve, both in private practice, UK, and Deborah Steiner, Tavistock Clinic, London, UK The New Dictionary of Kleinian Thought provides a comprehensive and wholly accessible exposition of Kleinian ideas. Offering a thorough update of R. D. Hinshelwood’s highly acclaimed original, this book draws on the many developments in the field of Kleinian theory and practice since its publication. The book first addresses twelve major themes of Kleinian psychoanalytic thinking in scholarly essays organised both historically and thematically. Themes discussed include: • unconscious phantasy, child analysis • the paranoid schizoid and depressive positions, the oedipus complex • projective identification, symbol formation. Following this, entries are listed alphabetically, allowing the reader to find out about a particular theme – from Karl Abraham to Whole Object – and to delve as lightly or as deeply as needed. As such this book will be essential reading for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists as well as all those with an interest in Kleinian thought.

Raul Moncayo, Training Analyst, Lacanian School of Psychoanalysis, California, USA Lacan’s seminar on identification marks a turning point from the early to the later years of his work. In this book Raul Moncayo builds on many of the concepts that Lacan developed in his seminar, focusing on the relationship between the unary trait and narcissism that occurs via ruling ideas, master signifiers, and the objet a as a part object and a partial form of identification. Moncayo advances Lacanian psychoanalysis not only for its scholarly value, but also for its bearing on the clinical practice of psychoanalysis today. Contents: Introduction. Part I: Theory. Trace and Trait: Non-identity as the Aim of Identification in Psychoanalysis. Semblance and the Luminous Face of the Void. Part II: Practice. On the Aim and End of Analysis in the Lacanian School. Variable Length Analysis and the Question of Brief Analysis. Part III: Culture. Postmodern Theory and Culture and Lacanian Psychoanalysis. Magritte, The Void, and The Imagination.

Between Winnicott and Lacan A Clinical Engagement Edited by Lewis A. Kirshner, Boston Psychoanalytic Institute, USA D. W. Winnicott and Jacques Lacan, two of the most innovative and important psychoanalytic theorists since Freud, are also seemingly the most incompatible. And yet, in different ways, both men emphasized the psychic process of becoming a subject or of developing a separate self, and both believed in the possibility of a creative reworking or new beginning for the person seeking psychoanalytic help. The possibility of working between their contrasting perspectives on a central issue for psychoanalysis – the nature of the human subject and how it can be approached in analytic work – is explored in this book. Their differences are critically evaluated, with an eye toward constructing a more effective psychoanalytic practice. Contents: Kirshner, Introduction.

Ian Parker, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK Jacques Lacan’s impact upon the theory and practice of psychoanalysis worldwide cannot be underestimated. Lacanian Psychoanalysis looks at the current debates surrounding Lacanian practice and explores its place within historical, social and political contexts. The book argues that Lacan’s elaboration of psychoanalytic theory is grounded in clinical practice and needs to be defined in relation to the four main traditions: psychiatry, psychology, psychotherapy and spirituality. Lacanian Psychoanalysis draws on Lacan’s work to shed light on issues relevant to current therapeutic practice.

Fourth Edition Anthony Bateman, Barnet Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust and Visiting Professor, University College London, UK, Dennis Brown, Group Analytic Practice, London, UK, and Jonathan Pedder, Maudsley Hospital, London, UK “This new edition of a classic text in the area will be welcomed by students and practitioners seeking a clear and well-balanced introduction to psychotherapy, rooted in clinical work and a wide and deep understanding of psychodynamic principles.” - Stephen Frosh, Birkbeck College, London, UK

Series: Advancing Theory in Therapy

This fourth edition of Introduction to Psychotherapy builds on the success of the previous three editions and remains an essential purchase for trainee psychotherapists, psychiatrists and other professionals. It has been revised and extended to capture some of the current themes, controversies and issues relevant to psychotherapy as it is practised today. Forthcoming!

Lacanian Psychotherapy

Bateman has added new chapters on attachment theory and personality disorder and has developed further the research sections on selection and outcome. His new chapter on further therapies covers a variety of therapeutic movements and establishes links between these and classical psychoanalytical therapies.

Theory and Practical Applications Michael J. Miller, SUNY Upstate Medical University, New York, USA The work of Jacques Lacan is associated more with literature and philosophy than mainstream American psychology, due in large part to the dense language he often employs in articulating his theory – often at the expense of clinical illustration. As a result, his contributions are frequently fascinating, but their utility in the therapeutic setting can be difficult to pinpoint. Lacanian Psychotherapy aims to fill in this clinical gap by presenting theoretical discussions in clear, accessible language and applying them to several chapter-length case studies.

Loneliness and Longing Psychoanalytic Reflections Edited by Brent Willock, Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis, Canada, Lori C. Bohm, City College of New York, USA, and Rebecca C. Curtis, Adelphi University, New York, USA We all experience loneliness at some time in our lives and it often motivates people, consciously or otherwise, to enter treatment. Yet it is rarely explicitly addressed in psychoanalytic literature. Loneliness and Longing rectifies this oversight by thoroughly exploring this painful psychological state. In this book contributors address the inner sense of loneliness – that is feeling alone even in the company of others – by drawing on different aspects of loneliness and longing and will be ideal reading for analysts, psychotherapists, and related practitioners facing the challenges of loneliness in their consulting rooms.

Why Things Matter

The Suffering Stranger

The Place of Values in Science, Psychoanalysis and Religion

Hermeneutics for Everyday Clinical Practice Donna M. Orange, Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, New York, USA Utilizing the hermeneutics of HansGeorg Gadamer and the ethics of Emmanuel Lévinas, The Suffering Stranger invigorates the conversation between psychoanalysis and philosophy, demonstrating how each is informed by the other and how both are strengthened in unison.

Winnicott, Heinz Kohut, and Bernard Brandchaft – investigating the hermeneutic approach of each and engaging these innovative thinkers precisely as interpreters, as those who have seen the face and heard the voice of the other in an ethical manner. In doing so, she provides the practicing clinician with insight into the methodology of interpretation that underpins the day-to-day activity of analysis. Contents: What is Hermeneutics?

David M. Black, in private practice, London, UK Why Things Matter explores how the comparatively new scientific discipline of consciousness studies requires us to recognize that subjectivity is as irreducible a feature of the world as matter and energy. Necessarily inter-disciplinary, this book draws on science, philosophy and the history of religion to argue that there can be influential values which are not based exclusively on biological need or capricious life-style choices. It suggests that many recent scientific critics of religion, including Freud, have failed to see clearly the issues at stake. Contents: Introduction: Science and Values. Consciousness: ‘A Fact Without Parallel’. Value-free Science: Galileo and Darwin. Sympathy as a Capacity. How Religions Work: A Comparison with Psychoanalysis.

Psychoanalysis and Ecology at the Edge of Chaos Complexity Theory, Deleuze|Guattari and Psychoanalysis for a Climate in Crisis Joseph Dodds, Charles University, Prague This book argues that psychoanalysis has a unique role to play in the climate change debate by placing emphasis on the unconscious dimensions of our mental and social lives. Exploring contributions from Freudian, Kleinian, Object Relations, Self Psychology, Jungian, and Lacanian traditions, the book discusses how psychoanalysis can help to unmask the anxieties, deficits, conflicts, phantasies and defences crucial in understanding the human dimension of the ecological crisis.

Contemporary Psychoanalytic Foundations Postmodernism, Complexity, and Neuroscience

Mark Leffert, in private practice, Santa Barbara, USA “Formidable! I was very impressed, not just by Leffert’s fantastic erudition but by the integration of his concept of the myriad problems surrounding the construct of consciousness... I’m going to have to read this book over and over again - it is as marvelous as it is useful.” - James S. Grotstein, Training and Supervising Analyst, Psychoanalytic Center of California and New Center for Psychoanalysis, USA

In an effort to provide a ground for current psychoanalytic thought, Mark Leffert creates an interreferential schema which balances the influences of postmodernism, complexity theory, and neuroscience as its key factors. Using the heterogeneity of postmodern thought as a starting point, he traces its impact on and implications for the development of the discipline, leading into the realm of complexity theory – which is relatively new to the psychoanalytic literature – and how it informs as well as constrains certain psychoanalytic assumptions. 2010: 320pp. Hb: 978-0-88163-496-9: £55.00/$90.00 Pb: 978-0-88163-497-6: £22.99/$35.95

Off the Couch Contemporary Psychoanalytic Applications Edited by Alessandra Lemma, and Matthew Patrick, both at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK

“The editors have gifted us with a rare treasure in putting together this book which reflects the range of contributions that key figures in the world of psychoanalysis have made to the services and culture that create the context for the evolution of psychoanalytic ideas.” - Peter Fonagy, University College London, UK The contemporary relevance of psychoanalysis is being increasingly questioned; Off the Couch challenges this view, demonstrating that psychoanalytic thinking and its applications are both innovative and relevant, in particular to the management and treatment of more disturbed and difficult to engage patient groups. This book suggests that psychoanalysis has a vital position within the public health sector and discusses how it can be better utilised in the treatment of a range of mental health problems. It also highlights the role of empirical research in providing a robust evidence base. Contents: Lemma, Patrick, Contemporary Psychoanalytic Applications:

Under the Skin A Psychoanalytic Study of Body Modification Alessandra Lemma, Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK

“Beautifully written, this book is easily approachable by a large spectrum of readers while also addressing some deeply psychoanalytic and clinical issues. By discussing specific unconscious phantasies and the hatred of reality at work in the compelling need to modify the surface of the body, the book introduces an important psychoanalytic perspective on the complex and delicate role of early maternal responsiveness in development.” - Dana Birksted-Breen, Training Psychoanalyst; Joint Editor-in-Chief International Journal of Psychoanalysis

Under the Skin considers the motivation behind why people pierce, tattoo, cosmetically enhance, or otherwise modify their body, from a psychoanalytic perspective. It discusses how the therapist can understand and help individuals for whom the manipulation of the body is felt to be psychically necessary, regardless of whether the process of modification causes pain. In this book, psychoanalyst Alessandra Lemma draws on her work in the consulting room, as well as films, fiction, art and clinical research to suggest that the motivation for extensively modifying the surface of the body, and being excessively preoccupied with its appearance, comes from the person’s internal world – under their skin. Under the Skin provides a detailed study of the challenges posed by our embodied nature through an exploration of the unconscious phantasies that underlie the need for body modification, making it essential reading for all clinicians working with those who are preoccupied with their appearance and modify their bodies including psychotherapists, counsellors, psychiatrists and psychologists.

Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis Rosemary M. Balsam, Yale School of Medicine, Connecticut, USA In this book Rosemary M. Balsam explores the overdrawn separations between the body and mind in psychoanalytic thinking, and considers the much neglected contribution of the physical body and its impact on the psyche. The book argues that it is not physically being a woman that affects a person’s mind,

but it is living in that physical, biological body of the woman constantly creating reactive portraits in the mind, that affects the life we lead. Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis singles out and explores the female body alluding to its history in theory. It also discusses clinical demonstrations that indicate the compelling nature of the sexed and biological female body. The book indicates that in order to advance thinking around sexuality and gender, the female body – specifically the pregnant body – needs to be reclaimed and reconceptualised. Illustrated throughout with clinical case studies, this book will allow the therapist to help the patient to appreciate how the elements of the physical body and the mind work together. Contents: Introduction. A Language of Silence? Women Talking. The Vanished Pregnant Body. The Pregnant Mother and Her Daughter’s Body Image. Childbirth. Childbirth in Vivo. Sisters and Brothers.

Please Select Your Gender From the Invention of Hysteria to the Democratizing of Transgenderism Patricia Gherovici, Philadelphia Lacan Study Group, USA

“This book is as complex and evocative as its title suggests. Drawing from her own psychoanalytic practice, Gherovici provides an intimate account of the psychological dilemmas her patients are facing... this book is a compelling ‘must-read.’” - Jeanne Wolff Bernstein, Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California, USA

Utilizing rich clinical vignettes and elements of Lacanian theory, Patricia Gherovici demonstrates how the transgender discourse has both reoriented psychoanalytic practice and reframed debates about gender in American society at large. She traverses historical, theoretical, and clinical grounds to explore what has been termed the “democratizing of gender” – for what could be more democratic than the choice of one’s own gender, now able to be changed on demand? Arguing for the depathologization of transgenderism, Please Select Your Gender aims to revise current notions of human sexuality in general. In doing so, it challenges the theory and practice of psychoanalysis with questions typically addressed only indirectly, but which are themselves transforming how analysis is done, advancing new ideas for the clinic that can be extrapolated to social and intellectual contexts in an effort to engage the broader dialogues of gender and sexuality. Contents: Introduction. The Imperative of Choice. The Democratizing of Transgenderism. Genealogy of Hysteria. Freud’s Sex Change. Falling into Sex Like Falling in Love. Gender and Sex as Performance.

The Gendered Unconscious

The Drama of the Mother– Daughter Relationship

Can Gender Discourses Subvert Psychoanalysis? Louise Gyler, in private practice, Sydney, Australia “Louise Gyler provides an excellently wellresearched, intelligently written, critical up-date on feminism and psychoanalysis.“ - Janet Sayers, University of Kent, UK

Feminist interventions in psychoanalysis have often attempted either to subvert or re-frame the masculinist and phallocentric biases of Freud’s psychoanalysis. This book investigates the nature of these interventions by comparing the status and treatment of women in two different psychoanalytic models: the Kleinian and the feminist psychoanalytic models.

Electra vs Oedipus

Hendrika C. Freud, in private practice, Amsterdam, the Netherlands Translated by Marjolijn de Jager Electra vs Oedipus explores the deeply complex and often turbulent relationship between mothers and daughters. In contrast to Sigmund Freud’s conviction that the father is the central figure, the book puts forward the notion that women are in fact far more (pre)occupied with their mother. Drawing on the author’s extensive clinical experience, the book provides numerous case studies which shed light on women’s emotional development. Topics include:

Sexual Revolutions Psychoanalysis, History and the Father Edited by Gottfried Heuer, in private practice, London, UK

The ideas of psychoanalyst Otto Gross (1877–1920) have had a seminal influence on the development of psychoanalytic theory and clinical practice and yet his work has been largely overlooked. For Freud, he was one of only two analysts ‘capable of making an original contribution’ (Jung was the other), and Jung called Gross ‘my twin brother’ in the course of their mutual analysis. This is a major interdisciplinary enquiry into the history, nature and plausibility of the idea of a ‘sexual revolution’, drawing also on the related fields of history, law, criminology, literature, sociology and philosophy. Sexual Revolutions introduces Gross’ work to the academic and clinical fields of psychoanalysis and Jungian analysis. Although most people associate the term with the 1960s, its foundations lie in the long-neglected but sensational work of the early psychoanalyst Otto Gross. This book will be essential reading for all psychoanalysts and Jungian analysts with an interest in learning more about his work.

The Artist’s Mind A Psychoanalytic Perspective on Creativity, Modern Art and Modern Artists George Hagman, Greater Bridgeport Community Mental Health Center, USA

“Hagman invites the reader to join him on a fascinating and audacious psychoanalytic tour of the minds of significant artists of the 19th and 20th Centuries... An innovative contribution to the dual fields of art and psychoanalysis, The Artist’s Mind is an engaging read.” - Joy Schaverien, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK, and author of The Revealing Image

For the past century psychoanalysts have attempted to understand the psychology of art, artists and aesthetic experience. This book examines how contemporary psychoanalytic theory provides insight into understanding the psychological sources of creativity, Modern Art and modern artists.

The movement repertoire that develops in the first year of life is a language in itself and conveys desires, intentions, and emotions. This early life in motion serves as the roots of ongoing nonverbal interaction and later verbal expression – in short, this language remains a key element in communication throughout life. In their path-breaking book, gestalt therapist Ruella Frank and psychoanalyst Frances La Barre give readers the tools to see and understand the logic of this nonverbal realm. They demonstrate how observations of fundamental movement interactions between babies and parents cue us to coconstructed experiences that underlie psychological development.

Parents and Toddlers in Groups

Infant Observation and Research

A Psychoanalytic Developmental Approach Edited by Marie Zaphiriou Woods, and Inge-Martine Pretorius, both at The Anna Freud Centre, London, UK “This book succeeds brilliantly at illustrating the enormous value of the psychoanalytic parent-toddler group model developed at the Anna Freud Centre and now adopted around the world... The authors teach by example, sharing their extraordinary knowledge of this tumultuous but exhilarating age through tactful interventions that expand our repertoire and stimulate our own creativity.” - Alicia F. Lieberman, University of California, San Francisco, USA

This book explores how psychoanalytic principles can be applied when working with parents and toddlers in groups. Illustrated with lively observations, it discusses how these parent-toddler groups can be an effective medium for early intervention during a period which is critical for the negotiation of a child’s central emotional issues. Parents and Toddlers in Groups demonstrates the particular challenges of the toddler phase and its contribution to an individual’s future development and relationships. Focusing on an approach developed by the Anna Freud Centre and comprising chapters from a range of expert contributors, topics include: • the history, theory and practice of parent-toddler groups at the Anna Freud Centre • how this approach has been adapted and applied across a wide range of settings and cultures • the findings of research projects carried out on parent-toddler groups.

40 years. Grounded in the developmental theories of Freud, Mahler, and Kernberg, these previously unpublished papers are introduced by experts who contemporize and contextualize the work for the modern reader and include ethics in child development, narcissism in the grade school years, tomboyism, idealization, negative ego ideals, and self-destructiveness in adolescence. More applied papers delve into the formative appeal of literature for adolescent girls, and the creative early motivations behind art, music, dance, mime, and poetry. Noshpitz’s thoughtful commentaries and analyses demonstrate his intrinsic curiosity, joy of learning, generosity and sensitivity to the myriad struggles of youth.

Freud and Education Deborah P. Britzman, York University, Ontario, Canada

The concept of education – its dangers and promises and its illusions and revelations – threads throughout Sigmund Freud’s body of work. This introductory volume by psychoanalytic authority, Deborah P. Britzman, explores key controversies of education through a Freudian approach. It defines how fundamental Freudian concepts such as the psychical apparatus, the drives, the unconscious, the development of morality, and transference have changed throughout Freud’s oeuvre.

A Process-Oriented Guide for Therapists Steven Tuber, and Jane Caflisch, both at City University of New York, USA Starting Treatment With Children and Adolescents provides new therapists with a time-tested framework for treatment and moment-by-moment guides to the first few sessions with a new patient. In twelve remarkable case studies, the authors lay out a different individual play-therapy session that includes a verbatim transcript, a running commentary on the techniques and theory used in each session, and an analysis of what worked, what didn’t, and what else the clinician could have done to make the session as productive as possible.

The Shadow of the Tsunami and the Growth of the Relational Mind

new and forthcoming

This book challenges existing models of primordial mind and the inherent limitations of theories derived from western thought, such as those which dismiss members of spiritual cultures as immature or primitive and which understand shamanism in relation to schizophrenia. As such this book will be of great interest to all psychoanalysts as well as those with a psychological interest in spiritual cultures.

Philip M. Bromberg, William Alanson White Institute, New York, USA Developmentally, we are all exposed to relational trauma: disconfirmation of aspects of oneself as having legitimate existence in the world of others. A wave of dysregulated affect – a “tsunami” – hits the mind, and if relationally unprocessed leaves a shadow that weakens future ability to interpersonally regulate affect and participate in spontaneous human interchange. Bromberg explores the nature of the therapeutic relationship that shrinks the shadow of the tsunami and facilitates “the growth of the relational mind.” Expanding on the self-state perspective of previous books, the analytic relationship is illuminated as an opportunity for two people to inhabit the dissociatively enacted shadow of the past, allowing it to be cognitively symbolized by new cocreated experience via state-sharing, thought, and language. This frees our natural capacity to feel trust and joy as part of an enduring regulatory stability and permits us to live with creativity, love, and a greater sense of meaning.

Primitive Mental States A Psychoanalytic Exploration of the Origins of Meaning Edited by Jane Van Buren, in private practice, California, USA, and Shelley Alhanati, Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California, USA

This book considers a radical evolution in contemporary psychoanalytic theory developed from a combination of ultrasound studies, infant analysis, and observation of mothers and babies. These findings demonstrate how much mental life exists even before birth and considers unevolved, unborn and barely born aspects of the self such as the birth of emotion and the birth of alpha functioning. 2009: 240pp. Hb: 978-0-415-46893-0: £65.00/$105.00 Pb: 978-0-415-46894-7: £23.95/$37.50

Relational Approaches in Gestalt Therapy Edited by Lynne Jacobs, Pacific Gestalt Institute, California, USA, and Richard Hycner, Couples and Individual Counseling Center, California, USA Foreword by Erving Polster

Lynne Jacobs and Richard Hycner assemble an international group of Gestalt theorists and clinicians for an engaging and insightful investigation into the integration of relational approaches within Gestalt therapy. The book is divided thematically into three sections. The first section speculates on the history and development of relationality in terms of Gestalt therapy. Chapters that discuss the patient-therapist relationship comprise the second section, and include explorations into uncertainty in interpretation and understanding, attunement and optimal responsiveness, working with shame, and negotiating individuality and “betweenness.” The last section opens up to groups and organizations, applying relational approaches to Gestalt therapeutic encounters with more than one patient. Contents: Part I: Overview and Explorations. Introduction. Hycner,

Preamble to the Relational Approach. Stawman, Relational Gestalt: Four Waves. Yontef, The Relational Attitude in Gestalt Theory and Practice. Part II: The Crucible of the Consulting Room.

Aggression, Time, and Understanding Contributions to the Evolution of Gestalt Therapy Frank-M. Staemmler, Zentrum für Gestalttherapie, Würzburg, Germany

“Frank-M. Staemmler is one of the most lucid thinkers I have ever known. Profoundly ethical, Aggression, Time, and Understanding is replete with thoughtful, even brilliant explorations of Gestalt therapy.” - Lynne Jacobs, Co-founder, Pacific Gestalt Institute, USA

Aggression, Time, and Understanding is the first book of Staemmler’s writings to be published in English. In the early sections of this book, Staemmler (supported by his Buddhist wife, Barbara) comprehensively explores and questions the traditional Gestalt therapy theory of aggression and proposes a new approach to working with anger and hostility. Further sections include in-depth examinations of the topics of time (the “Here and Now” and “Regressive Processes”) and understanding (“Dialogue and Interpretation” and “Cultivated Uncertainty”). 2009: 384pp. Pb: 978-0-415-87098-6: £26.95/$42.50

CoCreating the Field Intention and Practice in the Age of Complexity Edited by Deborah Ullman, Coach, Somatics-Based Therapist, and Gestalt Trainer, Orleans, USA, and Gordon Wheeler, Licensed Clinical Psychologist with Over Thirty Years of Practice, Teaches and Trains Widely Around the World

Cocreating the Field is about developing a radically new story to shift our perception of who we are as humans from a focus on our separate individual natures to our complex interconnectedness. The core Gestalt model offers a theoretical and pragmatic frame for addressing urgent concerns in a wide range of crucial arenas. Topics include the new relational neuroscience and how it interfaces with Gestalt’s assumptions about healthy human process; how one therapist is working with children in Dharamsala, India and Capetown, South Africa to help them digitally tell their stories in support of resilience; how transformational thinking brings pro-social and, for some, spiritual questing into focus; and how Gestalt-trained practitioners, therapists, coaches and consultants can become citizen-practitioners in a troubled world. 2009: 408pp. Pb: 978-0-415-87259-1: £26.95/$42.50
