This extraordinary collection of papers provides a brilliant and illuminating study of the crucial and oftentimes unacknowledged importance of the body in the psychoanalytic process. The collection encompasses a wide range of perspectives and will be of immense value to psychoanalysts and other contemporary thinkers and clinical practitioners. -- M. Guy Thompson, Ph.D., training and supervising analyst, Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California; author, The Ethic of Honesty: The Fundamental
This volume explores the mind-body continuum with wonderful depth and breadth, encompassing the most up-to-date and thoughtful explorations of the mind-body connection in relation to self and other. From Freud through Chaos Theory, the authors present many cogent theoretical and clinical examples of how the mind-body interplay affects character and pathology. A must-read for all psychoanalysts and psychodynamic thinkers and practitioners. -- Rona Knight, Ph.D., founding member, Berkshire Psychoanalytic Institute; assistant professor, Boston University Medical Center
Finding and re-finding, forgetting and remembering, the body appears to be the ongoing task of each psychoanalytic generation. Despite Freud's admonition that the first ego is a body ego, psychoanalytic thought has often failed to deeply reflect on this insight. This wide-ranging collection of essays addresses clinical, conceptual, and theoretical perspectives on the body in psychoanalysis with scholarship, insight and humor. It will serve as a touchstone for thinking about how the lived bodies of therapist and patient contact each other in depth psychotherapy. -- William A. MacGillivray Ph.D, ABPP, editor, Psychologist-Psychoanalyst
