Description - The Power of Understanding by Veikko Tahka
Psychoanalysis keeps on evolving and rather than going over theories already vocalised, this collection of important papers introduces new ideas and theories along with valuable clinical material. The papers discuss various issues, among them important topics such as dissidence, illusion and reality in the psychoanalytic relationship, transference, unconscious fantasies, therapeutic play and developmental object in psychoanalytic treatment.This book has been published in honour of Veikko Tahka, MD, the prime founder of the Finnish Psychoanalytical Society and a central pioneer in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy in Finland.
