The book consists of five main parts each with two chapters, one each by Abram and Hinshelwood that describes the views of Klein and of Winnicott on 5 chosen issues:
Early psychic development
The role of the external object
The psychoanalytic concept of psychic pain
Conclusions on divergences and convergences
Each of the 5 parts will conclude with a dialogue between the authors on the topic of the chapter.
The Clinical Paradigms of Melanie Klein and Donald Winnicottwill appeal to who are being introduced to psychoanalytic ideas and especially to both these two schools of British Object Relations.
Including contributions from a selection of leading therapists, the book shines a psychoanalytic light on the very process through which the discipline is described. It includes chapters on the idea of creativity, the issues around a therapist’s subjectivity, the challenges of describing trauma, as well as those of co-authorship.
Psychodynamics of Writingwill appeal to clinicians, therapists and anyone interested in what the process of writing means.
Williamson reveals how we each can become a miracle worker by accepting God and by the expression of love in our daily lives. Whether psychic pain is in the area of relationships, career, or health, she shows us how love is a potent force, the key to inner peace, and how by practicing love we can make our own lives more fulfilling while creating a more peaceful and loving world for our children.
