Overview

The Many Voices of Psychoanalysis spans over thirty years of Roger Kennedy's Work as a practising psychoanalyst, providing a fascinating insight into the process of development of psychoanalytic identity. The introduction puts the papers into context, charting the development of the author's practice and understanding of psychoanalysis and his position as part of the British Independent tradition. The intention of the chapters is to address the 'many voices' of psychoanalysis - the many roles and approaches a psychoanalyst may take, while adhering to the established ideas of psychoanalysis. The author takes into account the various influences which shape the psychoanalytic voice, drawing on literature, philosophy and sociology as well as analytic ideas. Subjects covered include: aspects of consciousness - one voice or many? handling the dual aspect of the transference, bearing the unbearable: working with the abused mind, the internal drama: psychoanalysis and the theatre, a psychoanalyst in the family court. This book will be of use not only to practising psychoanalysts, but also to psychoanalytic psychotherapists and other mental health workers. It will also appeal to anyone interested in the relationship between psychoanalysis and related disciplines.
