Elusive Elements in Practice by Bernardine Bishop

Book Description

The third volume in the The Practice of Psychotherapy series, Elusive Elements in Practice brings together a collection of papers, examining their ideas and theories more commonly regarded as off-centre, or indeed elusive, in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The papers in this volume concentrate on the religious and spiritual dimension of the therapeutic encounter, the "aesthetic experience", creativity and mysticism. These "moments of relatedness", or meetings of minds, are discussed and examined with the help of clinical examples.'...[psychotherapists] tend to agree on what is just too eccentric and is to be regarded with reserve and suspicion. These ideas are left on the margins and, getting less attention, they are more elusive. They will not get concentrated consideration either in the consulting room or in the study. This is one reason why they are more elusive. But such neglect may cause potentially good ideas to be lost, as well as ridiculous ones.'- From the IntroductionContributors:Patricia Allen; Bernardine Bishop; Faye Carey; Nathan Field; Angela Foster; Josephine Klein; Steven Mendoza; and Victoria O'Connell.

Difference by Bernardine Bishop Difference, Paperback (October 2006)

Theoretically psychoanalysis is all about recognition and appreciation of difference, yet the psychoanalytic profession itself does not have a good reputation in this area. This book aims to encourage a culture of open enquiry into an emotionally charged subject.

Bernardine Bishop, the great-granddaughter of the poet Alice Meynell, was one of the witnesses from the Lady Chatterley trial in 1960. After writing two early novels, she taught in a London comprehensive school for ten years and then went on to have a distinguished career as a psychotherapist, during which time she was a member of the London Centre for Psychotherapy and of the Lincoln Centre for Psychotherapy. Cancer forced her retirement in 2010 and thereafter she returned to her first love, fiction. Angela Foster had a career in social work and higher education before training as a psychotherapist. She has a private practice and is a partner in Foster Roberts Cardona, which provides organizational consultancy and professional development services. She teaches at the Tavistock Clinic and has published widely in the field of mental health. Josephine Klein was an academic for the first twenty years of her professional life and then a psychotherapist in private practice, now retired. She is a Fellow of the London Centre for Psyctherapy and was until recently a member of the British Association of Psychotherapists. Victoria O'Connell comes from a background of working with children and adolescents who have emotional difficulties and is now a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice.
