Moral Stealth by Arnold Goldberg

Book Description

A psychiatrist writes a letter to a journal explaining his decision to marry a former patient. Another psychiatrist confides that most of his friends are ex-patients. Both practitioners felt they had to defend their behavior, but psychoanalyst Arnold Goldberg couldn t pinpoint the reason why. What was wrong about the analysts actions? In "Moral Stealth," Goldberg explores and explains that problem of correct behavior. He demonstrates that the inflated and official expectations that are part of an analyst s training that therapists be universally curious, hopeful, kind, and purposeful, for example are often of less help than simple empathy amid the ambiguous morality of actual patient interactions. Being a good therapist and being a good person, he argues, are not necessarily the same. Drawing on case studies from his own practice and from the experiences of others, as well as on philosophers such as John Dewey, Slavoj i ek, and Jurgen Habermas, Goldberg breaks new ground and leads the way for therapists to understand the relationship between private morality and clinical practice.

Being of Two Minds by Arnold Goldberg Being of Two Minds, Hardback (June 1999)

Much of the approach to behaviour disorders and its associated vertical split has been directed to issues of self-control and/or punishment. Many of the attitudes of therapists to the parallel self are shared by the patient who is unable to understand it. This book examines the subject.
