Relational Theory and the Practice of Psychotherapy, Paperback / softback Book

Paperback / softback


This important and innovative book explores a new direction in psychoanalytic thought that can expand and deepen clinical practice.

Relational psychoanalysis diverges in key ways from the assumptions and practices that have traditionally characterized psychoanalysis.

At the same time, it preserves, and even extends, the profound understanding of human experience and psychological conflict that has always been the strength of the psychoanalytic approach.

Through probing theoretical analysis and illuminating examples, the book offers new and powerful ways to revitalize clinical practice. See also Wachtel's Therapeutic Communication, Second Edition: Knowing What to Say When, an integrative, practical guide for therapists of all orientations.
