Introduced in 1995, Boundaries and Boundary Violations in Psychoanalysis was lauded by the psychoanalytic community for its balanced, clear perspective professional boundary issues. It has since become the definitive text on the subject, and it is used in psychoanalytic seminars and courses all over the world. In this acclaimed volume, authors Glen O. Gabbard, M.D., and Eva P. Lester, M.D., shed light on the many controversies surrounding boundary issues and equip readers with strategies for recognizing and dealing with boundary problems on the part of both clinicians and patients. Using history, theory, case examples, and practical approaches, Drs. Gabbard and Lester help clinicians: * Understand the history of boundary violations in psychoanalysis -- and see how transgressions spark and evolve within the vulnerable framework of psychoanalysis. * Gain a psychoanalytic understanding of sexual and nonsexual boundary violations by both clients and their doctors, with many detailed case examples that illuminate the dynamics of these transgressions.* Develop knowledge and awareness of posttermination boundaries and the role of boundaries in psychoanalytic supervision.*
Learn practical institutional responses to serious violations, including preventive techniques, assessment and rehabilitation approaches, and transference/countertransference management approaches. With information geared toward both clinicians and institutions, Boundaries and Boundary Violations in Psychoanalysis is an invaluable resource for understanding and treating those who have transgressed professional boundaries. More broadly, it will help all clinicians develop an awareness of emerging problems in the psychoanalytic relationship in time to take steps to avoid serious transgressions.
