Book Description

The Seven Deadly Sins? grew out of a post-qualification training course of the same name. It aims to make more accessible some concepts from the world of psychoanalysis, self-psychology and affective neuroscience, as well as commenting on the challenge of working “in the real world”. This is achieved by offering an integrative and anecdotal perspective on issues that have been generally un- or under-explored in trainings that have a humanistic emphasis, issues such as envy, shame, love and hate, trauma, addiction, money, and eating disorders. These issues are illustrated through the judicious use of clinical case studies. Various “maps” are provided to assist the supervisor and clinician in holding opposing diagnostic models and in working with psychotherapy and counselling trainees.
