The Psychodynamic Image is the first selection of John D. Sutherland's major papers. It provides an overview of the development of his thought on self and society and reveals the extent of his contribution to the field of mental health.

Jill Savege Scharff introduces Sutherland's most important and influential essays. These reflect his range as a theoretician, moving easily from the intrapsychic to the interpersonal level, building bridges between points of view and integrating psychoanalytic and social theories. Sutherland's work calls for changes at the individual level through understanding conflicts and unconscious processes as aspects of parts of the self in interaction. He inspires respect and understanding of the self and its drive toward autonomy.

These papers push the boundaries of psychoanalytic thinking and succeed in demonstrating the relevance of psychoanalysis to the wider society. They will be of great interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, counsellors and social workers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Dr. Scharff's work is highly readable and constitutes the most important contribution to the literature about a very important figure in late twentieth century psychoanalysis. I recommend it for all mental health professionals." - James S. Grotstein, Training and Supervising Analyst Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society, USA

"Jock Sutherland did more than anyone else to democratise psychoanalysis, spreading it beyond the couch, through the professions, institutions and communities of contemporary society. A crucial gap has been filled by this welcome addition to the literature." - Colin Kirkwood, Scottish Institute of Human Relations, and Convenor, Sutherland Trust, UK
