Psychic Equilibrium and Psychic Change : Selected Papers of Betty Joseph, Paperback / softback Book

Psychic Equilibrium and Psychic Change : Selected Papers of Betty Joseph Paperback / softback

Edited by Michael Feldman, Elizabeth Bott Spillius

Part of the New Library of Psychoanalysis series

Description

Betty Joseph's work has become an outstanding influence in the development and theory of psychoanalytic technique in the Kleinian tradition. This collection of her most important papers examines the development of her thought and shows why a crucial part of her theory and practice is concerned with the detailed, sensitive scrutiny of the therapeutic process itself. Fundamental and controversial topics explored and discussed include projective identification, transference and countertransference, unconscious phantasy, and Kleinian views on envy and the death instinct.
