The Psychoanalyst's Superegos, Ego Ideals and Blind Spots
The Emotional Development of the Clinician
Leveringstid: Sendes innen 7 virkedager
Vic Sedlak examines clinicians' fear of a superego which threatens to become censorious of themselves or their patient and their need to aspire to standards demanded by their ego ideals. These dynamic forces are considered in relation to treatments which fail, to supervision and to recent innovations in psychoanalytic technique. The difficulty of giving thought to hostility is particularly stressed.
Richly illustrated with clinical material, this book will enable practitioners to recognise the unconscious forces which militate against their clinical effectiveness.
