The Fifth Principle Trilogy (Three Volume Set) (Paperback): Paul Williams The Fifth Principle Trilogy (Three Volume Set) (Paperback)
Paul Williams
R887 Discovery Miles 8 870 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The Fifth Principle is the first of three books that take as their subject aspects of the author's life, reflecting upon a period between birth and eight years of age. It is a piece of literature that furnishes an account of the methods of a mind in its efforts to prevail in oppressive circumstances. Scum explores the author's adolescent years, capturing disjunctive experiences by means of the fragmentation of language. The Authority of Tenderness is an insightful and beautifully written work that explores nonlinear processes of recovery of the loss of Self. The inherent healing power of hard-earned, wholehearted self-acceptance is conceived through the authority of tenderness. The books offer a vivid psychotherapeutic perspective for clinicians, trainees, students and general readers alike.

Transgender Identities - A Contemporary Introduction (Paperback): Alessandra Lemma Transgender Identities - A Contemporary Introduction (Paperback)
Alessandra Lemma
R523 Discovery Miles 5 230 In Stock

This important new book by Alessandra Lemma provides a succinct overview of psychoanalytic understandings, approaches, and controversies around transgender identifications. Illustrated with case vignettes, Lemma provides an up-to-date synthesis of current research and a critical overview of psychoanalytic approaches to transgender identities, distilling some of the contemporary controversies about how to approach the topic in the consulting room. Lemma also outlines a psychoanalytically informed ethical framework to support clinicians working with individuals who request medical transitioning and distils the ethical challenges faced by clinicians in light of the current emphasis on gender affirmative care. Part of the Routledge Introductions to Contemporary Psychoanalysis series, this book is of great importance for psychoanalysts in practice, academics and all those with an interest in transgender identities and mental health.

Psycho-Analytic Explorations (Paperback): Donald W Winnicott Psycho-Analytic Explorations (Paperback)
Donald W Winnicott; Edited by Clare Winnicott, Ray Shepherd, Madeleine Davis
R1,238 Discovery Miles 12 380 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

As both a theoretician and clinician, Donald Winnicott left a legacy of concepts, ideas and attitudes whose importance continues to grow. In this volume the editors have assembled ninety-two works half of them previously unpublished that will be of particular interest to psychoanalysts and psychotherapists. "Psycho-Analytic Explorations" will stand as the sourcebook of Winnicott s thought for those in his own field.This collection spans the years from World War II to Winnicott s death in 1971, and testifies to the wide range of his intellectual interests and clinical experience. It includes previously unpublished critiques of the ideas of Melanie Klein and comments on the work of other psychoanalysts, as well as clinical examples, case studies, and gems of thought extracted from his files. Many of the topics will be of direct use to clinicians: for example, play in the analytic situation, the use of silence; psychosomatic disorder, interpretation in analysis, and seven chapters on psychotherapy with children and adolescents. Other chapters treat such themes as the fate of the transitional object, fear of breakdown, the split-off male and female elements, the basis for self in body. Also included are Winnicott s writing on convulsion therapy and leucotomy; his memoir by his widow, Clare; and, as a postscript, a talk he gave late in life discussing the influences that shaped his work."

The Traumatic Loneliness of Children (Paperback): Rafael E.Lopez- Corvo The Traumatic Loneliness of Children (Paperback)
Rafael E.Lopez- Corvo
R702 Discovery Miles 7 020 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The common, existing distance between children and adults is the basis of this work, which has been addressed in many literary and cultural works throughout history. Not being able to remember how we, now adults, thought as children -like their spontaneity or magic and omnipotent form of thinking- would leave children completely isolated, like a helpless immigrant in a foreign land. This book attempts to comprehend, how parents' misunderstanding, can induce loneliness and helplessness in children, that with time will become traumatic, and will remain unconsciously present in all of us forever. It will continue to repeat using infantile emotions, children form of thinking, and experiencing as well, loneliness, anxiety, depression, fears and the chronic need of finding a 'rescuer', in the form of power, fame, drugs, money, religion, and so on. This very innovative approach to the understanding of children's segregation and its repercussion on adult's emotional life, will be of invaluable interest to all practicing psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, and parents included.

Sex, Death, and the Superego - Experiences in Psychoanalysis (Paperback, Updated): Ronald Britton Sex, Death, and the Superego - Experiences in Psychoanalysis (Paperback, Updated)
Ronald Britton
R884 Discovery Miles 8 840 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book is a personal reappraisal of psychoanalytic theories in the light of clinical experience. The first part is about sexuality and begins where psychoanalysis began, with hysteria. The second part is about the ego and the super-ego, the relationship of which dominated Freud's writing from his middle period onwards. The last part is on narcissism and the narcissistic disorders, a major preoccupation of psychoanalysis in the second half of the twentieth century.

This analysis is applied to the work of modern dance choreography, with special attention to the life and work of Paul Taylor. Drawing on this analysis, the implications of her theory of the creative process for the enrichment of the individual in his or her daily aesthetic, are examined.

Going Sane (Paperback): Adam Phillips Going Sane (Paperback)
Adam Phillips
R299 Discovery Miles 2 990 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Being sane has long been defined simply as that bland and nebulous state of not being mentally ill. While writings on madness fill entire libraries, until now no one has thought to engage exclusively with the idea of sanity.

In a society governed by indulgence and excess, madness is the state of mind we identify with most keenly. Though ultimately destructive, it is often credited as the wellspring of genius, individuality, and self-expression. Sanity, on the other hand, confounds us. One of the world's most respected psychoanalysts and original thinkers, Adam Phillips redresses this historical imbalance. He strips our lives back to essentials, focusing on how we--as human beings, parents, lovers, as people to whom work matters--can make space for a sane and well-balanced attitude to living. In a world saturated by tales of dysfunction and suffering, he offers a way forward that is as down-to-earth and realistic as it is uplifting and hopeful.

Psychoanalysis and Woman - A Reader (Paperback): Shelley Saguaro Psychoanalysis and Woman - A Reader (Paperback)
Shelley Saguaro
R773 Discovery Miles 7 730 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Psychoanalysis and Woman collects for the first time in one volume the most important psychoanalytic writings on female sexuality and women from Freud's contemporaries through French feminisms to postmodernism and post-feminism. These primary texts introduce the reader to a broad spectrum of works by primarily women theorists writing within a number of different psychoanalytic traditions.

Psychoanalysis and Woman makes available a number of fundamental, yet obscure and inaccessible early psychoanalytic documents by women and places them within the context of later women psychoanalytic theorists. Editor Shelley Saguaro provides a concise contextual introduction addressing some of the sexual political issues raised by psychoanalysis, while each section of the volume is prefaced with more specific biographical and cultural introductory material. Topics addressed include new reproductive and sexual technologies, cybernetics, androgyny, the "third sex," pornography, and psychoanalysis and contemporary media/film theory.

Contributors include Sigmund Freud, Karen Horney, Helene Deutsch, Jeanne Lampl-de Groot, Joan Riviere, Maria Torok, Melanie Klein, Nancy Chodorow, Juliet Mitchell, Noreen O'Connor and Joanna Ryan, Carl G. Jung, Esther Harding, Maria von Franz, Marion Woodman, Jacques Lacan, Helene Cixous, Luce Irigaray, Julie Kristeva, Mary Jane Sherfey, Monique Wittig, Jacqeline Rose, Camille Paglia, Judith Butler, and Jane Flax."

Gabriella Braun
R410 R341 Discovery Miles 3 410 Save R69 (17%) Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Who do you bring with you to work? Try as we might, we cannot leave part of ourselves under the pillow with our pyjamas when we go to work. We bring all that we are. In this collection of stories, Gabriella Braun shares insights from over twenty years of taking psychoanalysis out of the therapy room and into the sta ff room. She shows us why a board loses the plot, nearly causes their company to collapse, and how they come through. We see the connection between a headteacher's professional and personal loss. We understand seemingly unfathomable behaviour - why a man lets his organisation push him around, a lawyer becomes paranoid, a team repeatedly creates scapegoats, and founders of a literary agency feud. At a time when we are re-thinking the workplace, ALL THAT WE ARE shows that by taking human nature seriously, we can build more humane organisations where people and their work can thrive.

R448 Discovery Miles 4 480 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Groundbreaking, insightful, and compulsively readable, "Revolution in Mind" goes beyond myth and polemic to give us the story of one of the most controversial and important intellectual endeavors of the twentieth century. In this masterful history, George Makari demonstrates how a new way of thinking about inner life coalesced and won followers who spread this body of thought throughout the West. Along the way he introduces the reader to a fascinating array of characters, many of whom have been long ignored or forgotten.

"Revolution in Mind" is a brilliant, engaging, and radically new work--the first ever to account fully for the making of psychoanalysis.

Bion, Intuition and the Expansion of Psychoanalytic Theory (Hardcover): Antonia Grimalt Bion, Intuition and the Expansion of Psychoanalytic Theory (Hardcover)
Antonia Grimalt
R2,847 Discovery Miles 28 470 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Bion, Intuition and the Expansion of Psychoanalytic Theory illuminates how Bion's work on intuition has changed the landscape of contemporary psychoanalysis through his understanding of its supra-scientific and non-sub-scientific condition. Based on the work of the biannual Bion conference, this book includes contributions from the most eminent voices on Bion's work. The global cohort of contributors in this volume examine topics such as dream work, the Infinite Unconscious, the Spectral model of the mind, the realm of the minus and observation and intuition. Each chapter explores different elements arising from Bion's insistence on learning from experience and establishing the difference between knowing and becoming as an experiential process of the mind as a container in relation to its contents of sensations, feelings, dreams and thoughts. This book will be of key interest to analysts and analytic therapists of all schools and is an essential resource for those that follow the work of Bion.

Resilience and Survival - Understanding and Healing Intergenerational Trauma (Paperback): Clara Mucci Resilience and Survival - Understanding and Healing Intergenerational Trauma (Paperback)
Clara Mucci
R329 Discovery Miles 3 290 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Resilience stands at the limits of what it is to be human. The opposite of vulnerability, it encompasses qualities that are both relational and innately enforced. In this unique book Clara Mucci investigates how resilience can be fostered to create stronger individuals and societies. Mucci explores human responses to intergenerational trauma and identifies the key principles that can foster resilience and healing. She looks not only through the prism of attachment theory and developmental neuroscience but also explores the power of art, memoir and other frameworks, showing that acts of compassion and forgiveness contribute to building and reinforcing resilience and solidarity.

'A lucid well-organized expose of the theory and the manner of its development.' Times Literary Supplement This remarkable book is a biography of an unusual kind. It is at once the life of a mind at work, and the story of a long and intricate process of discovery. It takes the form of a stern and uncompromising analysis, and yet the author is so much in tune with his subject that the personality, and even the feelings, of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) and his contemporaries emerge from that analysis. Readers will also sense the effect of the frightening enlargement of the known area of human unhappiness that Freud's work revealed.

Comprehensive Dictionary of Psychoanalysis (Hardcover): Salman Akhtar Comprehensive Dictionary of Psychoanalysis (Hardcover)
Salman Akhtar
R1,435 Discovery Miles 14 350 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book provides easy-to-read, concise, and clinically useful explanations of over 1000 terms and concepts from the field of psychoanalysis. The history of each term is included as is the name of its originator. An attempt is made to demonstrate how the meanings of the term under consideration might have changed, with new connotations accruing with the passage of time and with growth of knowledge. Where possible, the glossary includes diverse perspectives on a given idea and highlights how different analysts have used the same term for different purposes and with different theoretical aims in mind.Ranging from abreaction and abstinence, metapsychology and malignant narcissism to xenophobia and zoophilia, the terms and ideas covered in the book make for a panoramic view of the psychoanalytic universe. The collection is wide-ranging, eclectic, and fundamentally generous: it includes the old, new, controversial, odd-sounding, familiar, unfamiliar all sorts of terms and phrases from the one hundred years history of psychoanalysis. While generally crisp and pithy, a definition here and there also includes an endearing anecdote, a wry remark regarding the hidden ironies in the concept at hand, and a deliciously surprising linkage with another idea in the book."
