New Ways in Psychoanalysisby Karen Horney
Challenging significant assumptions of both the psychoanalytic establishment and its surrounding culture, Karen Horney greatly extended the boundaries of Freud's theories and made the concepts and benefits of psychiatry available to a wider public. Horney's influential approach to psychiatry emphasizes present instead of past relationships and environment instead of biological determinism. Her theories have made a major contribution to psychological theory and practice, especially in the study of personality, and she was the first important psychoanalyst to challenge Freud's culture-bound views of women.
In New Ways in Psychoanalysis, Horney sets forth a model for the origin and structure of neurosis that explains how neuroses represent a struggle for life under adverse conditions and how psychotherapy can help us free ourselves from maladaptive ideas and behavior. Using examples from her practice and writing in clear, accessible prose, she illuminates psychological processes with insight and empathy.
