Research in Psychoanalysis: Process, Development, Outcome

Overview

Clinical psychoanalysis rests on a large edifice of theory that has until recently been studied only in practice. Empirical research on the psychoanalytical process and efforts to determine the effects of treatment came late. Nonetheless, there is a significant group of investigators who have been laboring to understand how and if analysis works. Their efforts are summarized in this volume by the researchers themselves, who tell about their quest.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward A. Wolpert, MD, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is an interesting book that brings together empirical scientists as well as clinicians to review significant research based on psychoanalytic concepts of analytic treatment process, individual psychological development, and treatment outcome.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe various empirical techniques that have been used to verify and extend clinically based hypotheses and to allow clinicians to react to this development.
Audience: Although the target audience is primarily psychoanalytically trained clinicians of all disciplines, it will be useful to experimentalists as well. The contributors are outstanding experimentalists and clinicians, and the work they report represents a half century of clinical and experimental development.
Features: Allowing clinicians to react to the experimental findings adds an important dimension to this work, not often seen in summaries of empirical data.
Assessment: This is a highly significant book for students of psychoanalysis as a treatment modality as well as for those experimenters interested in the empirical groundings of analysis. It clearly suggests that empirical exploration will only broaden and deepen our understanding of the individual and that scientific methods can be used in individual situations to derive universal laws.
