This book makes an original contribution to the study of the psychoanalytic process from a relational point of view, and at the same time serves as a textbook on the theory of technique. It provides a general exposition of the theory of psychoanalytic practice from a process perspective that emphasizes the analytic relationship, the dyadic nature of the psychoanalytic situation, and the impact of unconscious interaction between its two parties, and also includes the authors personal point of view and contributions on the subject.

'Theory of Psychoanalytical Practice: A Relational Process Approach is a wonderful tour de force, a journey through the main phases and specific aspects of the psychoanalytic method of treatment. The reader - either a seasoned analyst or a student of this impossible profession - can thus follow this path, under the experienced and elegant guidance of Juan Tubert-Oklander, one of the most distinguished Latin American analysts of our time, who takes advantage of his long practice and teaching skills in order to offer in this book a comprehensive account of the main contributions to the field, including his own views, but always through his ability to see, listen, feel, and write in both a sensitive and precise way. A book to be read over and over again.'- Claudio Laks Eizirik, Former President of the International Psychoanalytical Association
