Delusional Person by Salomon Resnik
Book DescriptionIn a long and distinguished career Salomon Resnik has established himself as a psychoanalyst of international reputation. The present volume gathers together, for the first time in an English translation, writings essential for a fuller understanding of his important and original ideas.Psychosis has been Resnik's central psychoanalytic preoccupation. Framed by his 'introductory self-reflections' and a postscript, and with an appreciative foreword by R. Horacio Etchegoyen, each chapter in this book represents a revised paper, and proffers insightful and incisive thoughts on the complex condition of psychosis.Drawing on, amongst others, the work of Bion, Winnicott and Herbert Rosenfeld, Resnik's sensitive and subtle probings may perhaps be summarised in the form of a question: how can a psychoanalytic approach overcome the many difficulties - powerful defence mechanisms, narcissistic rage, recalcitrant delusions and deep feelings of loss - that stand in the way of restoring the person to reciprocity, recognition of the other, and reconnection with the world? This book represents a life-long endeavour to explore, understand and facilitate this possibility of reparation.

Author Biography - Salomon Resnik
Salomon Resnik, MD, became a member of the International Psychoanalytical Association in 1956, after specializing in work with autistic children and young schizophrenic patients. He then studied anthropology and philosophy in Paris with Merleau-Ponty, Levy-Strauss and Bastide. In 1958, he went to London to work with Melanie Klein and underwent analysis with Herbert Rosenfeld, supervised by W.R. Bion and Esther Bick, from whom he gained a new insight into child and adult analysis. In the same year, he began working with some of the pioneers of group analysis, including S.H. Foulkes, Malcolm Pines and Patrick De Mare. He has worked for many years with groups of psychotics in Argentina, England and Paris, and for ten years worked as a consultant psychiatrist in Verona at the Santa Giuliana Hospital. A former senior lecturer in psychiatry at the University of Lyon, France, and Visiting Professor at the medical school of the Catholic University of Rome, he is now a practising psychoanalyst in Paris and Venice.
