Most contemporary psychoanalysts and psychotherapists see each patient once or twice a week at most. As many patients have reached a marked state of distress before seeking treatment, this gives the analyst a difficult task to accomplish in what is a limited amount of time. A Casebook of Psychotherapy Practice with Challenging Patients: A modern Kleinian approach sets out a model for working with quite significantly disturbed, distressed, or resistant patients in a very limited time, which Robert Waska has termed "Modern Kleinian Therapy." Each chapter provides a vivid look into the moment-to-moment workings of a contemporary Kleinian focus on understanding projective identification, enactment, and acting out as well as the careful and thoughtful interpretive work necessary in these complex clinical situations. Individual psychotherapeutic work is represented throughout the book alongside instructive reports of psychoanalytic work with disturbed couples, and the more challenging patient is illustrated with several comprehensive reviews of films that follow such hard-to-reach individuals. A Casebook of Psychotherapy Practice with Challenging Patients: A modern Kleinian approach is filled with a combination of contemporary theory building, a wealth of clinical vignettes, and practical advice. It is a hands-on guide for psychoanalysts and therapists who need to get to grips with complex psychoanalytic concepts in a short time and shows the therapeutic power the Modern Kleinian Therapy approach can have and how it can enable them to work most effectively with difficult patients. Robert Waska LPCC, MFT, PhD is an analytic member at the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis and conducts a full-time private psychoanalytic practice for individuals and couples in San Francisco and Marin County, California. He is the author of thirteen published textbooks on Kleinian psychoanalytic theory and technique, is a contributing author for three psychology texts, and has published over a hundred articles in professional journals.

This book offers a practitioner's guide to evidence-based practice in working with psychotic patients in an outpatient setting by clinicians and scholars who are internationally recognized for their work in treating severe psychopathology. Topics cover conceptual, technical, and practical considerations in the parameters of working with adult and adolescent populations that exhibit thought disorder, delusions, hallucinations, borderline organizations, trauma, and schizoid phenomena. Different theoretical models are presented from psychoanalytic traditions that introduce the student and practitioner to eclectic ways of conceptualizing and treating these challenging clinical groups. Concrete approaches to establishing a proper treatment environment, working alliance, symptom management, managing countertransference, and facilitating a therapeutic framework are provided. Various psychodynamic techniques are demonstrated by master clinicians through the extensive use of clinical case material culled from outpatient settings that illustrate how psychoanalytic perspectives enrich our understanding of the psychotic spectrum and lead to therapeutic efficacy.

Modern Kleinian Therapy is a model of effective psychoanalytic work that offers relief to deep internal conflicts by establishing and maintaining analytic contact, and beginning to unravel, modify, and heal turbulent and torn minds. This book defines Modern Kleinian Therapy as a modality for treating severely affected patients in a fairly traditional psychoanalytic manner, even when the environment or frequency of sessions are compromised. Chapter by chapter the book provides detailed clinical material to illustrate the complex dynamics that unfold when working with more closed off patients, and each case report shows the often limited clinical situations that the contemporary analyst must contend with. The book's detailed material serves to emphasize the nature of psychoanalytic work with individuals and couples, who otherwise rarely find their way to healthy attachment or reciprocal whole object relational harmony. Included in the book: * Technical and theoretical methods of Modern Kleinian Therapy * Psychoanalytic treatments to modify internal object relational conflicts * The Modern Kleinian Therapy approach to couple's treatment * The value of analytic contact. A Practical Casebook of Time-Limited Psychoanalytic Work: A Modern Kleinian Approach introduces new aspects of Kleinian work and offers a contemporary view on Kleinian techniques and concepts. It will be valuable reading for psychotherapists, mental health workers, and psychoanalytic therapists.

The result of three decades of psychoanalytic work with children and adolescents, this book takes a fresh and empathic look on the pervasive developmental disorders in childhood and adolescence, describing their many manifestations through the presentation of particularly representative clinical cases, in pages of high scientific rigour but also of simple and poetic language. What To Do if the Mind Does Not Develop speaks both to the specialist and researcher and to the reader who is simply interested in the topic, thanks also to a glossary of the more difficult technical terms. The text offers valuable psychoanalytic observations on the cognitive and emotional difficulties of these patients that may help physicians, teachers, and parents to develop a better and deeper understanding of their true psychology.

Psychoanalytic Therapy with Infants and Parents provides a clear guide to clinical psychoanalytic work with distressed babies and unhappy parents, a numerous clinical group so often in need of urgent help. Although psychoanalytic work is primarily verbal, and infants may have limited language, this form of treatment is receiving increased attention among therapists. Björn Salomonsson explores how such work can be possible and benefit infants, how to work with the parents (especially the mother), and how major psychoanalytic concepts such as primal repression, infantile sexuality and transference can be worked with and understood in these therapies. Björn Salomonsson argues that attachment concepts, though important, cannot solely help explain everyday problems with breastfeeding, sleeping, and weaning, or more recalcitrant interaction disorders. He shows how we also need psychoanalytic concepts to better understand, not only such "baby worries", but also adult clients' non-verbal communications and interactions. Throughout, he uses extensive practice-based examples and also refers to his research which provides evidence for the effectiveness of this practice. Psychoanalytic Therapy with Infants and Parents provides a unique perspective on working psychoanalytically with parents and infants. This book will be essential reading for psychoanalysts and therapists working with children as well as adults.

Freud's discovery of the Oedipus complex has had a tumultuous fate in the field of psychology in the United States. At first considered the kernel of psychoanalysis, it progressively lost its luster because of its patriarchal underpinnings–today Freud is barely studied in psychology departments. His theory of the unconscious, born of the notion that the child represses his love for his mother for fear of incurring his father's wrath, is now obsolete and replaced by various theories focused mainly on the mother--child relationship, where the burning question of the child's sexual development is conveniently set aside. In this revolutionary book Paul Verhaeghe, an expert Lacanian psychoanalyst and psychologist and award-winning author, explains why the Oedipus complex is not what it appears to be. Freud's theory can be read as a defensive myth that patients themselves invent in order to avoid confronting a forbidden enjoyment. Lacan's theory sheds a new light on this need for a defense. Seen from that angle the whole history of psychoanalysis, its twists and turns, is revisited, revealing connections with recent discoveries in attachment theory. New Studies of Old Villains will be of great interest to therapists and practicing psychologists, as well as academics.
