Mit seinem Konzept der seelischen Rückzugsorte hat John Steiner neue Wege in der Therapie von Patienten mit schweren Persönlichkeitsstörungen aufgezeigt. Hier veranschaulicht er, wie die therapeutische Arbeit gestaltet werden kann, wenn man den Patienten zum Verlassen dieser Rückzugsorte veranlassen will. John Steiner eröffnet neue Möglichkeiten zur Behandlung von stark belasteten Patienten, die sich in eine selbstgewählte Isolation gleichsam wie in ein Versteck zurückgezogen haben. Er beschreibt die Herausforderungen, die sich daraus für die therapeutische Beziehung ergeben: - wenn sich Therapeut und Patient in einen Machtkampfverwickeln, - wenn Verlustängste überhand nehmen, - wenn Trauer und Schuldgefühle unerträglich werden, - wenn Fortschritte in der Behandlung erneut mit Gefühlender Verlegenheit und Beschämung einhergehen. Mit detaillierten klinischen Beispielen bietet »Seelische Rückzugsorte verlassen« einen einzigartigen Einblick in die therapeutischen Schritte.

What is the truth of the unconscious? Truth and the Unconscious in Psychoanalysis explores the intersection of these two concepts within a Bionian framework. Giuseppe Civitarese maps out the unconscious in psychoanalysis, and focuses on the differences between the Freudian, Kleinian, Bionian and Lacanian schools of thought on this topic, as well as drawing on findings from neuroscience. The book explores topics including the inaccessibility of the unconscious, dreams, body issues, issues of personality, the influence of field theory and the clinical implications of this theorising. It contains innovative comparison between Freudian metapsychology and the Bionian theory on thinking, and novel use of Bion's hallucinosis as an important new technical tool. An internationally recognised author, Civitarese provides fresh ideas throughout on a challenging subject, supported with vivid clinical material. Truth and the Unconscious in Psychoanalysis will be of interest to anyone following the growing post-Bionian movement within contemporary psychoanalysis, enabling them to familiarize themselves with some of the most important current issues in psychoanalytic research. Truth and the Unconscious in Psychoanalysis will appeal to psychotherapists, psychologists and psychoanalysts, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students studying in the field.

Forensic Group Psychotherapy: The Portman Clinic Approach stands as a comprehensive account of theoretical and practical approaches to the group treatment of patients who present with problematic sexual behaviour, criminality, and violence.

This is followed by a series of chapters with a clinical emphasis, providing a rich and evocative account of the challenges of working with forensic patients in groups. The guiding principle is the need to understand and work with the victim within the perpetrator. This book is a must for any clinician working with forensic patients in groups.
