by Joseph M. Masling

Editorial Reviews

Contributes to the empirical basis of psychoanalytic theory and to psychoanalytic understandings of psychopathology by presenting current experimental research inspired by theory in the area of psychoanalytic models of psychopathology. The contributors discuss such topics as parental representations of psychopathology; origins of narcissism; adult psychopathology associated with a history of childhood sexual abuse; the experience of schizophrenia; the convergence of psychoanalytic and cognitive-behavioral theories of depression; causal links between depression and bulimia; and the psychodynamics of spatial experience in terms of the role of somatic discomfort in localization.
