From Obstacle to Ally by Judith M. Hughes

Book Description

From Obstacle to Ally explores the evolution of the theory and practice of psychoanalysis through an investigation of historical examples of clinical practice. Beginning with Freud's experience of the problem of transference, this book is shaped around a series of encounters in which psychoanalysts have managed effectively to negotiate such obstacles and on occasion, convert them into allies. Judith Hughes succeeds in bringing alive the ideas, clinical struggles and evolving practices of some of the most influential psychoanalysts of the last century including Sandor Ferenczi, Anna Freud, Melanie Klein, Wilfred Bion, Betty Joseph and Heinz Kohut. Through an examination of the specific obstacles posed by particular diagnostic categories, it becomes evident that it is often when treatment fails or encounters problems that major advances in psychoanalytic practice are prompted. As well as providing an excellent introduction to the history of fundamental psychoanalytic concepts, From Obstacle to Ally offers an original approach to the study of the processes that have shaped psychoanalytic practice as we know it today and will fascinate practising psychoanalysts and psychotherapists.

Books By Author Judith M. Hughes

Holocaust and the Revival of Psychological History by Judith M. Hughes Holocaust and the Revival of Psychological History, Hardback (October 2014)

Hughes focuses on how historians' efforts to grapple anew with actors' meanings, intentions, and purposes have prompted a return to psychoanalytically informed ways of thinking.

To the Maginot Line by Judith M. Hughes To the Maginot Line, Paperback (October 2006)

The decision to fortify north-eastern France has usually been considered a tragic mistake, an example of bad planning and missed opportunities. Here, the author attempts to negate this, by providing a view of how France's military and political leaders tried to safeguard their nation and why they failed.

Freudian Analysts/Feminist Issues by Judith M. Hughes Freudian Analysts/Feminist Issues, Hardback (April 1999)

This work presents a case for conceptualizing gender identity as potentially multiple, situating its argument within the history of psychoanalysis. It traces a series of conceptual lineages, each descending from Freud. Each lineage discerns an evolutionary narrative.

Reshaping the Psychoanalytic Domain by Judith M. Hughes Reshaping the Psychoanalytic Domain, Paperback (August 1990)

Tracing the line of succession from Sigmund Freud, through Melanie Klein to Fairbairn and Winnicott, Judith Hughes demonstrates the internal development of the British school of psychoanalysis and the coherence of its legacy. Both lay reader and professional will find the book illuminating.
