Object-relations theory and clinical psychoanalysis by Otto F Kernberg( Book )

60 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kernberg esamina in questo volume la natura e le origini delle relazioni interpersonali interiorizzate, sottolineando l'importanza delle prime relazioni oggettuali nello sviluppo normale e patologico della struttura psichica. II termine "teoria delle relazioni oggettuali" è diventato uno slogan e un punto d'incontro per molti analisti che, seguendo le orme di Fairbairn e di Winnicott, intendono esprimere la loro insoddisfazione per quelle che considerano le debolezze della metapsicologia di Freud, di Hartmann, di Melanie Klein e delle loro rispettive scuole. Tra quanti si sono occupati del problema, Kernberg appare qui il più preparato scientificamente ma anche il più leggibile. Kernberg espone i fondamenti delle proprie concezioni teoriche, chiarisce il suo concetto di scissione, traccia il ruolo che le relazioni oggettuali hanno nello sviluppo mentale della prima infanzia, e discute le varie evenienze patologiche. La parte finale ospita i suoi consigli sul trattamento degli stati borderline e dei pazienti narcisisti

Internal world and external reality : object relations theory applied by Otto F Kernberg( Book )

47 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in 6 languages and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The text presents expositions and critiques of the theories of Melanie Klein, W.R.D. Fairbairn and Edith Jacobson, and correlates the authors own work with that of Margaret Mahler. The theory of object relations can be applied to both psychoanalytic technique and psychoanalytic psychotherapy - and to narcissism, both normal and pathological, in middle age. An entire section of this book is devoted to group phenomena, expanding on the classical psychoanalytic theory of group psychology and demonstrating the effects of regressive processes to be found in various kinds of groups. Essentially the work places special emphasis on the temptations and dangers to individual members of groups and to their leaders, temptations and dangers resulting from the activation of regressive processes. The final section of the book brings together concepts of object relations and group processes to examine the complicated interactions within a couple and between couples and groups. In this context, the author offers an original psychoanalytic formulation of love and its psychopathology
Psychotherapy for borderline personality by John F Clarkin( Book )

24 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transference focused psychotherapy (TFP) is a sophisticated new variant of psychodynamic interventions centering on the analysis of the transference. Its main goal is to bring a patient's unconscious conflicts to the surface so that they can be actively worked through by the client and therapist within a rigorous clinical framework. In Psychotherapy for Borderline Personality, the authors describe TFP principles and methods and provide clear guidelines on how to apply them to individual patients on a session-by-session basis. With the help of numerous vignettes and case examples, they clearly outline the various stages of the TFP therapeutic process, from initial assessment to termination. Readers learn techniques for seeing past the wall of behavioral and cognitive dissonance typically thrown up by the borderline patient and to identify and label a patient's radically conflicting self-conceptions and object representations. Psychotherapy for Borderline Personality is an important professional resource for all mental health professionals

In this book a psychoanalytic clinician and theoretician integrates current knowledge of the psychodynamics of individuals, groups, and organizations into a new theoretical framework. Otto F. Kernberg shows how the interplay of libidinal and aggressive impulses enacted within the dynamic unconscious of the individual also occurs at the level of groups and social organizations. He sheds new light on the turbulent nature of human interactions in groups, suggests how this understanding may help resolve conflicts at the group and institutional levels, and provides a model for achieving effective institutional change

Kernberg llama nuestra atención hace los procesos de trasferencia, contratransferencia y la forma en que las relaciones objetales internalizadas por el paciente en épocas tempranas de su existencia, se manifiestan en las variadas expresiones de la agresión, el narcisismo y la autodestrucción.

La segunda radica en la importancia que otorga a la psicoterapia enfoncada en la trasnferencia para aquellos pacientes con trastornos graves de la personalidad, cuya aplicación ilustra para los casos límite, narcisista paranoico y antisocial

"The main strategy in the transference focused pychotherapy (TFP) of boarderline personality organization consists in the facilitation of the (re)activation in the treatment of split-off internalized object relations of contrasting persecutory and idealized natures that are then observed and interpreted in the transference. TFP is carried out in face-to-face sessions, a minimum of two and usually not more than three sessions a week."--Manual
