Description

This book deals with the link between the purpose of therapy and the boundaries of the therapeutic situation, which - the author argues - derive from the omnipresence of the anxiety surrounding separations and death. The theoretical framework of this book is part of a developmental line from Freud, Klein and Winnicott to Langs, via Sartre and Buber.
