Book Description

A watershed in the articulation of the relational psychoanalytic paradigm, this volume offers a rich overview of issues currently being addressed by clinicians and theoreticians writing from a variety of complementary relational viewpoints. Chapter topics cover the roots of the relational orientation in early psychoanalytic thinking, the impact of relational consideration on developmental theory, relational conceptions of "self" and "other," and clinical applications of relational perspectives.
