Elusive Elements in Practice by Bernardine Bishop
Book DescriptionThe 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.

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.
