Overview

The Concept of Analytic Contact presents practitioners with new ways to assist the often severely disturbed patients that come to see them in both private and institutional settings. In this book Robert Waska outlines the use of psychoanalysis as a method of engagement that can be utilised with or without the addition of multiple weekly visits and the analytic couch.

The chapters in this book follow a wide spectrum of cases and clinical situations where hard to reach patients are provided with the best opportunity for health and healing through the establishment of analytic contact. Divided into four parts, this book covers:

  • the concept of analytic contact
  • caution and reluctance concerning psychological engagement
  • drugs, mutilation, and psychic fragmentation
  • clinical reality, psychoanalysis and the utility of analytic contact.

Analytic contact is demonstrated to be a valuable clinical approach to working analytically with a complicated group of patients in a successful manner. It will be of great interest to all practitioners in the field of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Robert Waska is a new and promising American voice in the literature on Kleinian theory and practice and also on the psychoanalytic treatment of the difficult patient. Utmostly he encourages us to "think analytically" while treating any patient no matter how infrequently we see them or how ill they may be. This work also presents us with a studious review and amplification of Kleinian theory and technique." – James Grotstein, Training and Supervising Analyst Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society, USA
