Practice of Psychoanalysis by Thierry Bokanowski
Book DescriptionThis volume highlights several of the areas of tension and difficulty that have met psychoanalysis since its inception, and provides an incisive, informative history of various attempts to surmount these, finally leading to the author's own suggestions for a practice of psychoanalysis that remains open to the vicissitudes of the infinite set of processes of the human mind. In drawing from clinical examples and his own experience in addition to a wealth of psychoanalytic theory, the author examines such topics as the referential role of theory and the significance of the analytic space from both a personal and professional standpoint. As the author suggests, the dialectic between psychoanalytic theory and practice is one that is both highly problematic and potentially very nourishing. Thierry Bokanowski's volume provides an invaluable guide to analysts navigating the difficult terrain of contemporary psychoanalytic theory and practice.

Books By Author Thierry Bokanowski
On Freud's 'Constructions in Analysis', Paperback (June 2011)
In "Constructions in Analysis", Freud introduces the notion of constructions, different from interpretation, and considers it necessary - under certain conditions - to reconstruct a part of the infantile history of the subject. This title considers Freudian ideas and its implications nowadays.
On Freud's 'Mourning and Melancholia', Paperback (June 2009)
Both melancholia and mourning are triggered by the same thing, that is, by loss. The distinction often made is that mourning occurs after the death of a loved one while in melancholia the object of love does not qualify as irretrievably lost.
