The danger of change : the Kleinian approach with patients who experience progress as trauma by Robert T Waska( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Confusing clinical standoffs, loyalty to self-destruction and abrupt terminations are challenging and under-examined problems for the modern psychoanalytic practitioner. The Danger of Change is a timely book that addresses the so-called resistant patient so many clinicians are familiar with." "Robert Waska blends theory based on Melanie Klein's classical stance with the more contemporary Freudian/Kleinian school, to demonstrate how to understand patients that are resistant to progress." "Extensive and detailed clinical material is used to bring clarity to subjects including symbolism, conflict resolution, projective identification, the depressive and paranoid positions, change and trust." "The Danger of Change brings hope and clarity to cases involving patients who experience progress as a threat to their emotional well-being. It will be of great interest to all practising psychoanalysts, as well as those studying psychoanalytic theory and practice."--BOOK JACKET
The concept of analytic contact : the Kleinian approach to reaching the hard to reach patient by Robert T Waska( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Concept of Analytic Contact presents practitioners with new ways to assist the often severely disturbed patients that come to see them in both private and institutional settings. In this book Robert Waska outlines the use of psychoanalysis as a method of engagement that can be utilised with or without the addition of multiple weekly visits and the analytic couch. The chapters in this book follow a wide spectrum of cases and clinical situations where hard to reach patients are provided with the best opportunity for health and healing through the establishment of analytic contact.

Moments of uncertainty in therapeutic practice : interpreting within the matrix of projective identification, countertransference, and enactment by Robert T Waska( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of therapy's greatest challenges is the moment of transference, when a patient unconsciously transfers emotion or desire to a new and present object, in some cases the therapist. During the course of treatment, a patient's projections and the analyst's struggle to divert them can stress, distort, or contaminate the therapeutic relationship. It may lead to various forms of enactment, in which the therapist unconsciously colludes with the client in interpretation and treatment, or projective identification, in which the client imposes negative feelings and behaviors onto the therap
Real people, real problems, real solutions : the Kleinian psychoanalytic approach with difficult patients by Robert T Waska( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Real People, Real Problems, Real Solutions offers a clear introduction to psychoanalytic practice from a Kleinian perspective and shows how the modern Kleinian works with the most taxing of their patients." "Through its integrated blending of clinical and theoretical findings Real People, Real Problems, Real Solutions shows how the average psychoanalyst and psychotherapist face many difficult patients in a typical day's work."--
Projective identification in the clinical setting : the Kleinian interpretation by Robert T Waska( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do Kleinians work with projective identification?The concept of projective identification, first introduced by Melanie Klein in 1946, has been widely studied by psychoanalysts of different persuasions. However, these explorations have neglected to show what Kleinians actually do with the projective identification phenomenon in their daily casework. Projective Identification in the Clinical Setting presents a detailed study of Kleinian literature, setting a background of understanding for the day-to-day analytic atmosphere in which projective identification takes p

Between unknown change and familiar retreat : psychotherapy technique for our most challenging patients by Robert T Waska( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theme of Dr. Robert Waska's new book involves how all patients, whether neurotic, borderline, or psychotic, want their problems to ease and their stress to stop but unconsciously they avoid any real psychological change. They strive to maintain their psychic equilibrium regardless of how destructive it may be, in an effort to avoid the loss of what is known and to avoid the unknown pain or punishment that change might bring. Each chapter provides the reader with a contemporary Kleinian focus on central theoretical and clinical concepts such as projective identification, enactment, transference, pathological organizations, and depressive or paranoid acting out. The reader then is shown the careful and thoughtful interpretive work necessary in these complex clinical situations
