Psychoanalysis and the Paranormal by Nick Totton

Book Description

'The space of the paranormal can indeed be frightening. But psychoanalysis specializes in entering and tolerating frightening spaces. Why should this one be an exception?'-Nick Totton from the ForewordThis fascinating and long-overdue work on paranormal phenomena - a topic ignored in mainstream psychoanalytic media since the 1950s - aims to demonstrate the real relevance of the paranormal to psychoanalysis and clinical practice. Nick Totton has gathered together a wide range of psychoanalytic approaches, including Freudian, Lacanian, Jungian and Reichian, to present an impressive collection of thought-provoking articles on this controversial subject. Various aspects of the paranormal are investigated, such as dream telepathy, parapsychology, UFO contactee stories and alien abductions (the only wholly sceptical paper in this collection, presented by two Parisian Lacanian analysts), and synchronicity. There is also a philosophical essay concerned with the concept of the paranormal and the surrounding psychoanalytic ideas. This is a well-informed and well-argued work that will engage its readers in a stimulating debate on the disputed concept of the paranormal.

Vital Signs by Nick Totton Vital Signs, Paperback (November 2011)

Vital signs are, of course, the basic physiological measures of functioning which health practitioners use to assess the gravity of a patient's predicament. This title focuses on our psychological predicament, as news of the situation slowly penetrates our defences and we struggle as individuals and as a society to find an adequate response.

Wild Therapy by Nick Totton Wild Therapy, Paperback (March 2011)

'Wild Therapy' is a way of naming the intersection point of several trends in psychotherapy and counselling. Most crucially, it is a response to how human connectedness to all the beings with whom we share this universe, has been largely severed. Why does therapy not address this condition in which most human activity now takes place?
