The Many Voices of Psychoanalysis spans over thirty years of Roger Kennedy's work as a practicing psychoanalyst, providing a fascinating insight into the process of development of psychoanalytic identity.

The introduction puts the papers into context, charting the development of the author's practice and understanding of psychoanalysis and his position as part of the British Independent tradition. The intention of the chapters is to address the 'many voices' of psychoanalysis - the many roles and approaches a psychoanalyst may take, while adhering to the established ideas of psychoanalysis. The author takes into account the various influences which shape the psychoanalytic voice, drawing on literature, philosophy and sociology as well as analytic ideas. Subjects covered include:

aspects of consciousness - one voice or many?handling the dual aspect of the transferencebearing the unbearable - working with the abused mindthe internal drama - psychoanalysis and the theatrea psychoanalyst in the family court.

This book will be of use not only to practicing psychoanalysts, but also to psychoanalytic psychotherapists and other mental health workers. It will also appeal to anyone interested in the relationship between psychoanalysis and related disciplines.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"... Kennedy's work is interesting and enlightening. All the chapters are well written and researched in a thoughtful, scholarly manner. I enjoyed the author's insights into the theater and found his description of the experiment with treating psychotic families as inpatients fascinating. I gained a better understanding of how a British analyst of the Independent School thinks about theory and works with patients. Hence, with the caveat that the numerous "voices" in this book detract from thinking of it as a cohesive volume, I found this a work to enjoy and learn from." - Sybil A. Ginsburg, Psychoanalytic Quarterly, January 2009
