Psychoanalytic Plurality in Theory and PraxisThe second annual FreeBook from Routledge and ABAPsa presents clinical work from the practices of board certified psychoanalytic psychologists working from a wide array of theoretical orientations, with patients whose problems in living are equally diverse. 

More than simple case studies, each chapter presents a cogent conceptualization of the psychoanalyst’s thinking and how this thinking eventuates in a particular stance and interventional strategy. The chapters invite one to think about one’s own clinical approach and how it might be enriched and deepened by engaging each author’s work.
