The psychoanalytic movement has expanded and diversified in many directions over its one hundred year history. An Introduction to Psychoanalysis examines the contributions made by the various schools of thought, explaining the similarities and differences between

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Throughout they give a measured, critical appraisal of psychoanalytic thought and practice; both its strengths and weaknesses ... I found it an extremely helpful exposition of what analysts now think, why they think it, and what they now do as a result. - British Association of Counselling Practice

This extensively researched and usefully referenced book deserves the place it aspires to as an introductory text. - International Journal of Psycho-analysis
