Generation is both an introduction to and a comparative study of contemporary psychoanalytic clinical theory. It provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of how new ways of thinking about the psychoanalytic process have evolved and are still in development today. Written in clear, accessible language and interwoven throughout with clinical vignettes, Generation provides an invaluable initiation into the work of notoriously difficult authors such as Lacan and Bion. This stimulating presentation of contemporary psychoanalytic theory will be of great interest to psychoanalytic psychotherapists, psychodynamic counsellors and psychoanalysts of all theoretical orientations.

Reviews and Endorsements

Jean White presents a detailed study of contemporary Independent, Lacanian and post-Kleinian theory, set within the wider context of the international expansion of psychoanalysis. Contemporary clinical practice is discussed in relation to concepts of psychopathology, transference and countertransference and innovations in technique. Each school's explicit and implicit models of psychic growth and their view of the aims of the psychoanalytic process are explored.

Contents:
Introduction. Introducing the three paradigms. Contemporary Independents. Lacanians. Post-Kleinians. Contemporary clinical practice. A modern view of narcissism. Structures of psychopathology. Motivational echoes: transference and countertransference in contemporary theory. Surprise, humour and non-interpretation: a new look at psychoanalytic technique. The aims of analysis and psychic growth. The Future? Conclusion.
