Clinical Lectures on Klein and Bion outlines the basic ideas in their thinking and shows in detail how these ideas can be used to tackle a clinical problem. The contributors correct some common misconceptions about Kleinian analysis, while demonstrating the continuity of their everyday work with seminal ideas of Klein and Bion.

Originally given as a series of lectures intended to acquaint the general public with recent developments in psychoanalytic thinking and practice, the papers in this book cover the most fundamental ideas put forward by Klein and Bion; child analysis, Klein's use of the concepts of unconscious phantasy, projective identification, the paranoid-schizoid and depressive positions, Bion's study of psychotic thinking, his ideas of the relation between container and contained, and the usefulness of the ideas of reversible perspective in understanding 'as if' personalities.

In particular, this book provides an eminently readable and authoritative introduction to some of the most original and controversial concepts ever put forward in psychoanalysis.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Outstanding for its readability, clinical approach and teaching qualities.' - Tavistock Gazette

"This is a very worthwhile book that should prove useful to anyone interested in understanding Kleinian practice and theory. This book should also be of interest to American analysts who seek to understand the foundations - and parallel evolution - of concepts and issues which are currently being discussed under the rubric of a purported new "relational" paradigm for psychoanalysis." - Howard B. Levine, Psychoanal. Q., 62:651-653 (PAQ)
