The Relational Revolution in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy
"Relational psychoanalysis can accommodate the shockwaves in the world and the most intimate encounters between analyst and analysand and show how they are intertwined. This timely and elegant book is an invitation to understand the workings and theory of relational therapy at a time when issues of identity, attachment and the democratizing of psychoanalysis are at the centre of concerns in the field."
Dr. Susie Orbach, psychoanalyst, and author of Fat is a Feminist Issue, The Impossibility of Sex, and Bodies
The relational revolution led to what is arguably the most radical revision of our understanding of how to effect healing and change in the mind since Freud's ground-breaking work more than a century ago. In this concise yet comprehensive overview, Steven Kuchuck addresses core theories as well as newer, cutting edge trends within relational psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. This book defines postmodern relational concepts, and offers a clear, thoughtfully curated examination of relationality and its impact on psychoanalytic technique for both experienced clinicians and those newer to the field.
