Overview

Building on the success and importance of three previous volumes, Relational Psychoanalysis continues to expand and develop the relational turn. Under the keen editorship of Lewis Aron and Adrienne Harris, and comprised of the contributions of many of the leading voices in the relational world, volumes 4 and 5 carry on the legacy of this rich and diversified psychoanalytic approach: Volume 4 takes a fresh look at developments in relational theory, and volume 5 demonstrates that theory in practice and process. Various topics bear investigation, including enactment, subjectivity and intersubjectivity, multiplicity of self-states, disclosure, trauma, fantasy, thirdness, and social construction, as well as issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, and culture. Thoughtful, capacious, and integrative, these two new volumes place the leading edge of relational thought close at hand, and push the boundaries of the relational turn that much closer to the horizon.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The chapters in this volume attest to the success of the unusual professional community that was formed by the relational point of view. The contributors demonstrate an originality of thinking and action (practice) that, taken together, indicate the continued creative spirit generated by the relational revolution. The small miracle of the volume is that there is nothing nostalgic or sentimental about the tone of the chapters. They are the kinds of clinical stories relational analysts tell each other when there is time and encouragement and an atmosphere of creativity. There is a healthy intermingling of the theoretical along with the clinical. Overall, this volume challenges you, the reader, in what I consider to be a lively and engaging way. And in the spirit of the relational sensibility, I venture to say that what the reader brings and how she or he voyages 'on such a full sea' of clinical process can be what will make this volume a great one." - Spyros Orfanos, From the Foreword
