The theoretical and practical basis of psychoanalysis as described by Freud lies in interpretation - a statement to the patient that places his or her behaviour or words in a different context. In their enthusiasm for this procedure, psychoanalysts have tended to underestimate the limitations of this technique and overlooked other ways of helping the patient. In this ground-breaking book, Peter Lomas discusses the importance of the relationship between patient and therapist, and puts forward the merits of a more open, honest, and personal engagement. The book, first published in 1987, has become a classic. In this new edition, much of the material has been re-written. While the general tenor and central argument remain, the author has conscientiously revised and, in places, sharpened his argument. The result is a book that is even clearer and more compelling than the original.
