This collection of contemporary clinically-oriented papers covers a range of theoretical approaches to the fundamentally important technical issue of interpretation. It offers thought-provoking, cross-cultural clinical perspectives about interpretation with illustrations from cutting edge clinical practice with couples and families.

Divided into three sections, the first part of the book examines interpretation within the broader field of psychoanalysis, and notes how it has been applied to couple and family psychoanalysis. Part II considers the current use of interpretation with couples, including how it informs assessment, while Part III focuses on its application with families and considers a broad range of key topics, including the nature of family, social and intergenerational links, the arrival of a newborn, same sex couples' families, bereavement in a family, and families with adolescent children. Each chapter includes a lively discussion piece.

Interpretation in Couple and Family Psychoanalysis: Cross-Cultural Perspectives represents a major contribution to the field of couple and family psychoanalysis. It reflects the fruits of an unparalleled era of global collaboration and the resultant re-shaping of approaches to clinical practice with couples and families. Mental health professionals dealing with couples and families will find it to have immediate relevance to their clinical work, either in their institutional or private practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Interpreting deep unconscious conflicts to a couple or to a family can vex even the most experienced of mental health practitioners. Fortunately, Timothy Keogh and Elizabeth Palacios have assembled an internationally renowned community of sagacious psychoanalysts who share their extensive clinical wisdom in generous fashion. I only wish that I had access to such a magnificent text when I began my training. This book would have been the perfect road map." --Professor Brett Kahr, Senior Fellow, Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology, London, and Trustee of the Freud Museum London

"This book will have immediate relevance to clinicians. It represents an edited collection of papers from a conference organised by the International Psychoanalytical Association's Couple and Family Psychoanalysis Committee (COFAP) hosted by the Madrid Psychoanalytical Association (MPA) in Madrid in 2017. The conference was not only a high level scientific meeting, but one wherein there was a real debate of ideas from different cultural perspectives. This excellent book captures the theoretical and clinical plurality, which enriched the exchanges between colleagues at the conference that emphasised respect for thought, difference and creativity. It provides the reader with an exciting and accessible text on the important topic of interpretation." --Teresa Olmos de Paz, President of the Madrid Psychoanalytical Association
