Many mental health professionals assume that Jacques Lacan has no relevance to psychoanalytic thinking, except as a theorist. This book sets out to show that there are real living connections between theory and practice which psychodynamic psychotherapists of all persuasions can make use of in their clinic. This book assumes no prior knowledge of Lacanian theory and sets out to explicate the often misunderstood concepts that make Lacanian practice so unique. Michael Kennedy contributes two papers setting out the Lacanian style of work, the concept of the structure of psychosis, neurosis and perversion, and the importance of using these structures to influence technique. Also explored are the controversial variable-length session, interpretation and intervention. Papers illustrating the Lacanian Clinic in action are contibuted by Anne Dunant, Jan Aitken, Gerry Sullivan and Richard Klein. This book should be of interest to those wishing to incorporate some of Lacan's groundbreaking work into practice. The editor is a psychoanalyst in private practice.
