Topography and systems in psychoanalytic theory by Merton M Gill( Book )

"The central aim of this monograph was to re-examine the place of topographic concepts in psychoanalytic theory and their relationship to the psychoanalytic theory of systems. The topographic theory was introduced by Freud in The Interpretation of Dreams in 1900 and revised somewhat in the metapsychological papers of 1915-1917. The structural theory was introduced in The Ego and the Id in 1923 and has since then, though with many amplifications, remained in psychoanalytic theory as the hypothesis of the systems into which the mental apparatus is divided. In discussions of the relationship between the concepts of topography and structure, several different levels of theory must be distinguished. The most general is that of the metapsychological points of view which subsume any discussion of topography or structure. The next more specific level is that of the particular topographic and structural theories which Freud advanced. The next more specific level is that of the particular systems described by Freud. The topographic systems Pcs., Ucs., and Cs. are part of the topographic theory; and the structural systems id, ego, and superego are part of the structural theory. It is generally agreed that the topographic systems were replaced by the structural systems, but it has not been clear whether there should be a topographic point of view in addition to a structural one. Furthermore, what role topographic concepts should continue to play in psychoanalytic theory--in fact just what phenomena should be subsumed under the designation topographic--has also not been clear"--Book.

The initial interview in psychiatric practice with phonograph records available to professional persons and institutions by Merton M Gill( Book )

22 editions published in 1954 in English and Undetermined and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interviewing is the principal diagnostic and therapeutic tool of modern psychiatry. More an art than a science, the interviewing process is difficult to describe and the skill of interviewing is difficult to teach. Recent developments in the field of sound recording and filming made the collection of raw data on the interview possible. The introduction of sound recording into the field of psychiatry gave us a technique which permitted a more operational and pragmatic approach, opening up new possibilities for research and teaching. The establishment of a high fidelity sound recording laboratory at Yale permitted us to record and observe many interviews and collect data for the present volume. To our knowledge, this is the first systematic attempt to publish combined printed word and sound record for didactic and scientific purposes in the field of psychiatry. By listening to the records, the printed account of the interview becomes alive. We chose the initial interview as the area of our investigation. The initial interview as we present it here deals primarily with psychological data. We chose three patients to present in this volume. Two of them were suffering from psychoneuroses which led them to seek help in our Psychiatric Dispensary; one was a schizophrenic woman hospitalized in a public mental hospital. Our procedure consisted of listening, observing and recording the interviews of many patients and therapists and finally choosing a few interviews which seemed to be best suited for teaching purposes. The book is primarily addressed to psychiatrists, but as the material is about interviewing we hope that it will be of use to social workers and behavioral scientists as well. Besides the three interviews, we have included a chapter which critically surveys the literature on interviewing, with particular reference to the initial interview; a chapter expressing our theoretical viewpoint and our conclusions about the technique of the initial interview; and a final chapter on sound recording"--Introduction.

Diagnostic psychological testing; the theory, statistical evaluation, and diagnostic application of a battery of tests by David Rapaport( Book )

42 editions published between 1945 and 1967 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The diagnostic use of the word-association test, the Rorschach test, and the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) are discussed in this volume, approximately 60% of the book being devoted to a detailed analysis of findings obtained in various clinical groups with the Rorschach test. The word-association test results are analyzed with reference to popular reactions, close reactions, distant reactions, reaction time, responses to traumatic as opposed to nontraumatic stimulus words, and a comparison of responses originally elicited by a stimulus word with responses elicited on a second administration of the test. The TAT is treated largely qualitatively. Trends appearing in the TAT that are of diagnostic importance for several clinical categories are reviewed. In the discussion of the Rorschach test, the scoring and interpretation follow the basic schema proposed by Rorschach, though a number of refinements in scoring are introduced. This test seems to provide the best single diagnostic tool of the battery employed. For ready reference, diagnostic analyses are given in which individual cases are summarized with a notation of the Rorschach signs pointing to the diagnosis finally made for each patient.

Interpretation and interaction : psychoanalysis or psychotherapy? by Jerome D Oremland( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent decades the relationship between psychoanalysis and psychotherapy has been a focal point for debate about the distinctiveness of analysis as a particular kind of therapeutic enterprise. In Interpretation and Interaction, Jerome Oremland invokes the interventions of ""interpretation"" and ""interaction, "" rooted in the values of understanding and amelioration, respectively, as a conceptual basis for reappraising these important issues. In place of the commonly accepted triadic division among psychoanalysis, exploratory psychotherapy, and supportive psychotherapy, he prop
Diagnostic psychological testing. the theory, statistical evaluation and diagnostic application of a battery of tests by David Rapaport( )

6 editions published in 1945 in English and held by 108 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)
