A new language for psychoanalysis by Roy Schafer( Book )

21 editions published between 1976 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Roy Schafer offers a radical reconceptualization of Freudian metapsychology. When Freud wrote about his discoveries of the unconscious and the nature of psychic processes, he used the language of the prevailing scientific theories of his time -- energy, force, and mechanism. In contrast, Schafer sees psychoanalysis as an interpretive discipline, a human science that requires a language of its own, unencumbered by the old natural science concepts. Schafer proposes a new language for psychoanalysis, freed from the ambiguities and biases of mechanistic theory. His formulation is based on the notion of action, were "action" is understood to mean the widest variety of human behavior: perceiving, organizing, fantasying, wishing, and doing -- consciously and unconsciously. -- Description of the source book
The analytic attitude by Roy Schafer( Book )

28 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The analytic attitude" ranks as one of Freud's greatest creations. Both the findings of psychoanalysis as a method of investigation and its results as a method of treatment depend on its being consistent to a high degree. Yet Freud offered no concise, complex, generally acceptable formulation of what it is: his ideas, or a version of them, can only be derived from his papers on technique. Taking these ideas as a starting point, and with due regard to the contributions of other analysts over the years, Dr Schafer rises to the challenge of defining the "ideal" attitude that he come to aspire to

Retelling a life : narration and dialogue in psychoanalysis by Roy Schafer( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is the long-awaited new book by the influential, always provocative psychoanalyst, Roy Schafer. It focuses on a vacuum that has developed between psychoanalysis and critical thinkers in the social sciences and humanities. Schafer's goal is to weave psychoanalytic discourse into the tapestry of modern trends in intellectual history, notably linguistic and hermeneutic approaches to interpretation." "The manner in which we "narrate" our lives is the central theme of psychoanalytic discourse and a critical issue for all of us, Roy Schafer argues. Narrating, giving an account, presenting a version: these terms make up the core vocabulary of the narrative approach. From this perspective, Schafer offers a new understanding of such diverse issues as men's struggle against sentimentality; women and power; happiness and failure; and analysts' sublimated love for their patients." "Whether he's redefining the self, reinterpreting Freud, or counteracting the stereotype of the aloof, authoritarian, and patriarchal analyst, Schafer's rich observations will inform and stimulate not only analysts but all those interested in psychoanalytic thought as an intellectual current of our times."--Jacket
Diagnostic psychological testing; the theory, statistical evaluation, and diagnostic application of a battery of tests by David Rapaport( Book )

50 editions published between 1945 and 1967 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The material presented here is the outgrowth of cooperation of clinical psychologists and psychiatrists over several years. It is intended to be a factual summary of the concentrated use of the most recent and most advanced testing procedures which psychology has to offer clinical psychiatric work. It is hoped it will represent a step forward in the systematization of those principles of the psychology of thinking which are part of the necessary background to a proper qualitative evaluation of these tests. Our aims have been four-fold: 1. We have attempted to show how the tests were welded in our clinical work into a single diagnostic tool. 2. We have attempted to validate those of the tests which have already been put to general clinical psychological use, but for which no systematic clinical validation has been offered in the past; and to develop into easily handled diagnostic indicators some of their neglected characteristics, which have been found useful in our clinical work and experience. 3. We have attempted to put to general use some of these tests which were hitherto used only in the study of specific groups of cases. With these tests our effort was to develop them into tests of general diagnostic use by designing and validating new scoring and new interpretation criteria. 4. We have attempted to develop a psychological rationale for each of these tests and for the different types of responses on them; because without such a rationale the tests and test results must remain meaningless to the psychiatrist, and a matter of automatic procedure and mechanical comparison to the clinical psychologist. The research population included clients with schizophrenia, preschizophrenia, paranoia, depression and neurosis--Intro. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

Insight and interpretation : the essential tools of psychoanalysis by Roy Schafer( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insight and interpretation are crucial tools of the psychoanalytic process that have been neglected and misunderstood in recent psychoanalytic literature where the focus has shifted to the effects of countertransference on the relationship between patient and analyst. Roy Schafer brings these tools back to the forefront of psychoanalytic thinking, integrating them with recent contributions on countertransference to create a more cohesive understanding of the psychoanalytic process. These essays will prove invaluable to analysts trying to maintain an articulated and rounded view of what it take
Tradition and change in psychoanalysis by Roy Schafer( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this era of rapid change in psychoanalysis there is a need for a work that bridges tradition and innovation. This book is devoted to building that bridge. On the one side there are the fundamental contributions of Freud and the great modern developers of ego psychology, and on the other the panoramas being opened by object-relational theory and practice, feminist thought, and postmodern critical theory. In this book, both the old and the new are shown to have significant strengths and distinctive problematic aspects, and the same may be said of the many transitional positions now prevalent among workers in the field of mental health
