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

Protagonista importantísimo de las más modernas tendencias del pensamiento psicoanalítico que encuentran su inspiración en los aportes innovadores de Fairbairn y Winnicott, el autor desarrolla en esta obra su perspectiva de un modelo estructural de la mente centrado en la internalización de las relaciones objetales. Partiendo de una análisis sistemático de algunos aspectos controvertidos y aún no resueltos de la metapsicología psicoanalítica, procura en primer lugar definir ciertos términos desde un punto de vista funcional, ara posibilitar así una adecuada conceptualización del material clínico. Llega de tal manera a elaborar una base teórica que se concilia con los datos clínicos y constituye una formulación especial de la teoría psicoanalítica de las relaciones objetales en función de la psicología del yo. Desde este punto de vista propone una clasificación general de la patología caracterológica y describe su abordaje terapéutico de las organizaciones de personalidad narcisista y del tipo fronterizo, la aplicación de la teoría psicoanalítica de las relaciones objetales a las relaciones amorosas normales y patológicas, como también al estudio de los procesos y a los criterios de conducción de grupos, en especial en lo que atañe a los tratamientos llevados a cabo en hospitales psiquiátricos

Psychotherapy for borderline personality by John F Clarkin( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 477 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
Internal world and external reality : object relations theory applied by Otto F Kernberg( Book )

25 editions published between 1980 and 1994 in English and held by 445 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

8 editions published in 1998 in English and Italian and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 examines borderline personality disorder, narcissism, sexual inhibition, transference and countertransference, suicidal behavior, and eating disorders."--BOOK JACKET
Contemporary controversies in psychoanalytic theory, techniques, and their applications by Otto F Kernberg( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, esteemed psychoanalyst Otto F. Kernberg reviews some of the recent developments and controversies in psychoanalytic theory and technique." "Dr. Kernberg examines, for example, the new psychoanalytic views of homosexuality, bisexuality, and the influence of gender in the analytic relationship. He explores the application of psychoanalysis to non-clinical fields, including the problem of psychoanalytic research and its clinical implications, the validation of psychoanalytic interventions in the clinical process, and the challenges of psychoanalytic education. He shows how psychoanalysis can be helpful in addressing such cultural problems as socially sanctioned violence. And he asserts the continued relevance of object relations theory and its compatibility with Freud's dual drive theory. Gathering together both previously published articles and extensive new material, Dr. Kernberg offers an explication of advances that have been made throughout the world in psychoanalytic understanding."--BOOK JACKET

22 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sono sempre più frequenti le applicazioni della psicoanalisi a problematiche e patologie emergenti da situazioni sociali e relazioni interpersonali caratteristiche della vita contemporanea. Le personalità borderline, il narcisismo normale e patologico della <<mezza età>>, i disturbi dell'individuo nei gruppi e nelle organizzazioni di lavoro, i problemi della coppia, sono per l'analista altrettanti ambiti nuovi di intervento clinico e di riflessione teorica. Kernberg integra in modo del tutto originale la teoria delle relazioni oggettuali con la psicologia dell'Io, e ci presenta di tale concezione i fondamenti teorici e le applicazioni alla psicoanalisi tradizionale e alla psicoterapia psicoanalitica. Destinato a chi si occupa di psicoanalisi degli adulti e a chi opera nel campo della psicoterapia dei gruppi e della coppia, il libro aggiunge una dimensione nuova alla questione del <<clima>> affettivo delle istituzioni, affronta le dinamiche normali e psicopatologiche della coppia e dell'amore, e le complesse interazioni fra queste e le più ampie dinamiche del gruppo di cui la coppia fa parte

Otto Kernberg : live case consultation by Otto F Kernberg( Visual )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this training video, legendary psychoanalyst Otto Kernberg conducts three case consultation sessions. By asking a series of wisely chosen questions, he is able to quickly hone in on key characterological aspects of the patients, as well as the dynamics of the therapist-client interactions, and then offer extremely useful and jargon-free suggestions on how each therapist can proceed in a more effective manner. You will gain an understanding of Kernberg's unique and effective approach to both case consultation and working with challenging patients; learn what questions are essential to ask early on in treatment in order to make an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan; and develop skills to more effectively apply an object relations approach to assess, diagnose, and treat people with personality disorders. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions."
