"This volume describes in detail my impression of specifically how to understand and to interpret in an analytic session. The reader will note that I present clinical sessions in stenographic detail and display complete sessions. It will be noted that I do not include past history but do make reference to it when it is necessary to understand the text. In the sessions of my own analysands and in those of others, I go to great lengths to detail my private observations, reveries, and countertransferences as well as my thinking about how, when, and what should be interpreted."--The Introduc

Fairbairn and the origins of object relations( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most significant psychoanalytic theorists in the past 50 years, W. Ronald D. Fairbairn has had a profound influence in almost every area of contemporary theory and practice. Filling a gap in the literature, this important new work features chapters by major analytic thinkers and clinicians who explore Fairbairn's contributions and the influence his thinking has had upon their work. The book opens with an introduction by the editors, a review of Fairbairn's achievements in the context of modern psychoanalytic theory by John D. Sutherland, and a synopsis of object relations theory written by Fairbairn himself. The second part of the book, which provides an overview of object relations theory and an in-depth look at Fairbairn's endopsychic structure, includes chapters by major theorists. Otto F. Kernberg discusses the theory and challenge of Fairbairn's basic concepts; Stephen A. Mitchell compares Fairbairn's "object" to that of Melanie Klein; Thomas H. Ogden elucidates the concept of internal object relations; and James S. Grotstein comments on Fairbairn's metapsychology. Similarly, Fairbairn's endopsychic structure is examined by Richard L. Rubens, Grotstein, and Arnold H. Modell, who comment, respectively, on the nature of the structural theory, the relationship between endopsychic structure and the cartography of the internal world, and the communication of affects. Bridging theory with practice, the third part presents four clinical formulations of Fairbairnian theory by Neville Symington, Eleanore M. Armstrong-Perlman, Victoria Hamilton, and Judith M. Hughes and the fourth part provides a discussion of Fairbairn's contributions to understanding disorders of the self, illustrated with specific case material. Included is a reconsideration of Fairbairn's "original object" and "original ego" in relation to borderline and other self disorders by Donald B. Rinsley, a commentary on "narcissism" in Fairbairn's theory of personality structure by John Padel, and a Fairbairnian object relations perspective on self psychology by Michael Robbins. Finally, Grotstein provides a unique summary that focuses on the legacy of Fairbairn and the implications of his theory for current and future study. Of special note are the book's extensive appendices, which include a list of Fairbairn's main papers, contributions related to Fairbairn, and a glossary of Fairbairn's concepts and terminology. This volume will be valued by psychoanalysts, students of psychoanalytic theory, psychiatric residents, clinical psychologists, psychiatric social workers, and other professionals in the mental health field. It serves both as a primary text for courses on object relations theory and as a supplementary text for recommended reading

Who is the dreamer who dreams the dream? : a study of psychic presences by James S Grotstein( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Who Is the Dreamer Who Dreams the Dream? A Study of Psychic Presences, James Grotstein integrates some of his most important work of recent years in addressing fundamental questions of human psychology and spirituality. He explores two quintessential and interrelated psychoanalytic problems: the nature of the unconscious mind and the meaning and inner structure of human subjectivity. To this end, he teases apart the complex, tangled threads that constitute self-experience, delineating psychic presences and mystifying dualities, subjects with varying perspectives and functions, a

Disorders of affect regulation : alexithymia in medical and psychiatric illness by Graeme J Taylor( )

3 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An entirely new perspective on how emotions influence mental and physical health. The authors present recent thinking about the development and regulation of emotions, and argue that several common but difficult to treat psychiatric illnesses, including drug addictions, eating disorders, panic disorder and post traumatic stress disorders, are a consequence of an inability to regulate distressing emotions through mental processes. The book also advances a model in which dysregulated emotions may alter other bodily systems and thereby contribute to the development of physical illnesses and diseases. Generously illustrated throughout with clinical vignettes and providing descriptions of innovative therapeutic approaches, this book offers a valuable and stimulating reference for clinicians and researchers alike
Of things invisible to mortal sight : celebrating the work of James S. Grotstein by Annie Reiner( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr James Grotstein (1925-2015) was the foremost Bion scholar, and one of the most noted and honoured psychoanalysts in the world. His prolific writings and generous encouragement to other analysts has had an enormous impact. He was among the first to examine Bion's most controversial concept - O - in particular the mystical aspects of O. The title of this book, Of Things Invisible To Mortal Sight: A Celebration of the Work of James S. Grotstein, inspired by a line from Milton's Paradise Lost (Book III), reflects Grotstein's decades-long examination of the most profound aspects of the human mind. Dr James Grotstein's erudition and depth of understanding made him one of the most revered psychoanalysts throughout the psychoanalytic world. He was well known and appreciated for his prolific writings, so it was only fitting to honour him through writing, and the fifteen articles in Of Things Invisible To Mortal Sight are written by esteemed analysts from Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Israel, and throughout the United States. They vary from examinations of Grotstein's theories and his historical place in psychoanalysis, to detailed clinical accounts and creative theoretical works. To honour James Grotstein is also to honour Wilfred Bion, for we might say that Bion was his muse for a half century, as well as his teacher, analyst, and the inspiration for Grotstein's encyclopedic writings about Bion's work in countless articles and books. Grotstein's insatiable curiosity and passion for learning, however, led to his studying and contributing to the literature of many other psychoanalytic orientations as well, ranging from Klein to Kohut to Intersubjectivity, but until the end of his life Grotstein continued to find inspiration in Bion's work, and in Bion himself - the genius, mystic, and "extraordinary individual." Grotstein spent decades examining Bion's concept of O, and many other mysteries and states of mind "invisible to mortal sight," which must nonetheless be intuited and which Grotstein, and these authors, help psychoanalysts to do."--Provided by publisher

Affect regulation and the origin of the self : the neurobiology of emotional development by Allan N Schore( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over three decades, Allan N. Schore has authored numerous volumes, chapters, and articles on regulation theory, a biopsychosocial model of the development, psychopathogenesis, and treatment of the implicit subjective self. The theory is grounded in the integration of psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience, and it is now being used by both clinicians to update psychotherapeutic models and by researchers to generate research. First published in 1994, this pioneering volume represented the inaugural expression of his interdisciplinary model, and has since been hailed by a number of scientific and clinical disciplines as a groundbreaking and paradigm-shifting work. This volume appeared at a time when the problem of emotion, ignored for most of the last century, was finally beginning to be addressed by science, including the emergent field of affective neuroscience. After a century of the dominance of the verbal left brain, it presented a detailed characterization of the early developing right brain and it unique social, emotional, and survival functions, not only in infancy but across all later stages of the human life span. It also offered a scientifically testable and clinical relevant model of the development of the human unconscious mind. Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self acts as a keystone and foundation for all of Schore’s later writings, as every subsequent book, article, and chapter that followed represented expansions of this seminal work."-- Publisher's website
