The comprehensive The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychoanalysis is the only textbook of its kind in this distinguished field. Both a clinical guide and a reference book, this essential text focuses not only on psychoanalytic theory and treatment but also on developmental issues, research, and the many ways in which theoretical psychoanalysis intersects with contiguous disciplines.

The editors, recognized experts in the field, have brought together a remarkable 39 distinguished contributors whose broad-based interests make this textbook a unique reference for interdisciplinary psychoanalysis. The textbook provides an overall view of the methodology of psychoanalytic intervention, covering core concepts, developmental theory, treatment and techniques, research, and history, and concludes with an extensive glossary and name and subject indexes.

No other psychoanalysis textbook is as comprehensive in scope with such a broad array of contributors as The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychoanalysis. This up-to-date reference will find a wide audience not only among psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, educators, and students but also among professionals in allied disciplines such as psychology, anthropology, literature, the arts, philosophy, politics, and neuroscience.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David A. Garfield, M.D.(Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science)
Description: This textbook draws together an outstanding array of North American researchers and clinician-scholars to present the historical, empirical, clinical, and contemporary knowledge base and skill set of modern psychoanalysis. Unlike other psychoanalytic texts, this book speaks originally and synthetically to the entire corpus of psychoanalysis today. Not only is theory and practice masterfully articulated, but cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary interactive forces are delineated in an engaging and illuminating fashion.
Purpose: This compendium is designed to be, in the authors words, "a broad based and comprehensive resource, valuable to the scientific specialist and to the curious student." Given its sponsorship by a psychiatric as opposed to a psychoanalytic publishing house, one of its specific purposes is to illustrate the ongoing vital role that psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic thought plays in the treatment of specific psychiatric disorders. Furthermore, the authors emphasize that psychoanalysis can be carried out in concert with a variety of other treatment modalities for those who meet the criteria for psychoanalytic treatment.
Audience: Mental health workers, including psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and students in any of these clinical disciplines are an appropriate audience. Furthermore, researchers and students in child development, neuroscience, anthropology, the arts, literature, philosophy, international relations and empirical psychology will find this to be a terrific reference.
Features: Six sections house 36 chapters, most of which are single authored. Part 1 is on core concepts with additional chapters on intersubjectivity and gender and sexuality. Part 2 covers developmental theory with added chapters on the interface between psychoanalytic developmental theory and other disciplines and the developmental perspective of the psychoanalytic understanding of mental disorders. Part 3 reviews treatment and techniques. Part 4 details outcome, process, developmental and conceptual research in psychoanalysis. Part 5 illustrates the history of psychoanalysis and psychoanalysis in Latin America, North America, France and Great Britain and Continental Europe. Part 6 goes into depth on the mutual influence between psychoanalysis and empirical psychology, literature, philosophy, the arts, anthropology, neuroscience, and international relations.
Assessment: This book is "best of breed." The section editors are skilled, and at least two-thirds of the chapters are original, synthetic perspectives on the topic. Pine's first chapter on motivation is brilliant, Aktar's third chapter on early relationships and their internalization is new and unique, Stern's fifth chapter on intersubjectivity is exhilarating in its creative, usable scholarship, Dimen and Goldner's sixth chapter on gender and sexuality is innovative and compelling. Bucci's review of process research in chapter 21 clarifies a confusing area. Solms' final chapter on neuroscience and the advent of neuropsychoanalysis is invigorating. Space does not allow for more superlatives. Also notable is the extensive bibliography at the end of each chapter which allows readers to further pursue their areas of interest.
