Avoiding Emotions, Living Emotions
Avoiding Emotions, Living Emotions explores the psychoanalytic encounter and examines how emotions are formed and experienced by both the patient and analyst. The author narrates key theoretical concepts through the presentation of clinical material from adult and child analysis and emphasises the importance of being able to foster these narrations.
Offering new insights into how the mind works, topics of discussion include:
- Bion’s thinking and its fertilization: clinical implications
- variations on transference and countertransference
- image and narration.
Providing the reader with clinical exercises and case reports, this book will be of great interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and psychiatrists, as well as being a helpful tool in psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic work on a day-to-day basis.
