Difficulties in the Analytic Encounter

This book represents an odyssey through the career of a thoughtful and serious psychoanalyst. John Klauber, a strong and articulate member of the middle or "independent" group of the British Institute of Psycho-Analysis, was President of the British Psycho-Analytical Society at his untimely death in August 1981. This volume, which he fortunately lived to see published, turns out to be a legacy of his psychoanalytic and personal thinking and feeling, and contains ten papers spanning the tewnty years of the 1960s and 1970s. It conveys, in a fashion which compels reading, the mind of the author which was the essence of the man.
Product Details


'The book consists of ten selected papers gathered under the rubric of Difficulties in the Analytic Encounter. This is a fitting title not only because of the book's contents but also because the opening wedge into clinical material and the window to the unconscious during the psychoanalytic process are first and foremost the analysis of resistances. The papers span the twenty years of the 1960s and 1970s. They are grouped not chronologically but according to a logical division, in which they first describe difficulties intrinsic to the psychotherapeutic situation, then difficulties and problems of technique, and in the final third, difficulties Arising from within the psychoanalyst. Two final papers. add significant insights into basic areas of psychoanalytic concern. One is about method, and the other expresses a timeless interest in the psychology of religious belief.'- L. Rangell, Psychoanalytic Quarterly'The total effect of Difficulties in the Analytic Encounter amounts to far more than the sum of its parts. The effect becomes the moving experience of coming to share the products of the fine mind, with its feelings, of a colleague who has determinedly independent, implacably candid, and who bore witness to a calling religious in nature but without dogma.'- V. Spruiell, International Journal of Psychoanalysis
