Reviews and Endorsements

‘A clinically and theoretically sophisticated book that extends psychoanalysis across the individual, dyadic, social, cultural, and political realms. It draws on an international array of thinkers and practitioners and it will be used to advance the integration of the psychotherapies.’
— Lewis Aron, PhD, Director of the New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis

‘A psychoanalyst and group analyst reflects about the number of objects considered in the various psychoanalytic theories and the meanings this number has in the clinical, social, political, ideological, and philosophical perspectives. Far from representing a departure from psychoanalysis, [his] personal observations are “a must”, if we are to continue developing the exploration of the unknown continent opened by Freud. This book delineates a new metapsychology able to integrate intrapersonal and interpersonal mental processes, group, and individual psychology.’
— Franco Borgogno, PhD, Full Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Turin, and Training and Supervising Analyst, Italian Psychoanalytical Society

‘An inspiring glimpse into Latin American psychoanalysis and in particular its unique attention to group analysis, [revealing] the fecundity of the transpersonal and collective vertices in the psychoanalytic way of thinking and working. The loss of “purity” in contemporary psychoanalysis is well compensated by the creative potentials of cultural “mestization”. To read this book is to re-discover one’s analytic identity as an interconnected figure within a sort of hologram of the psychoanalytic world.’
— Charles Levin, PhD, Director, Canadian Institute of Psychoanalysis and Editor, Canadian Journal of Psychoanalysis

‘Juan Tubert-Oklander has a deep understanding about the emergence of Relational Psychoanalysis from the matrices of classical and modern psychoanalysis, the Foulkesian Group Analysis from Britain and Pichon-Rivière as the forerunner of both psychoanalysis and group analysis in Argentina. The clinical vignettes are illuminating, the chapter on Winnicott as Hermes in London inspiring.’
— Malcolm Pines, MD, Past President, International Association of Group Psychotherapy and Group-Analytic Society; former Consultant, Tavistock Clinic, London

‘Juan Tubert-Oklander achieves an almost impossible task: bridging the gap between psychoanalysis (especially relational approaches) and group analysis. He clarifies how what happens within people (intrapsychic, intrapersonal) cannot be explored without discussing what happens between people (interpsychic, interpersonal, and transpersonal). Juan is a Renaissance man, a polymath. This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in psychotherapy, whether individually or in groups.’
— Haim Weinberg, PhD, Past President of the Northern California Group Psychotherapy Society and of the Israeli Association of Group Psychotherapy; Director of International Programs at the Professional School of Psychology, California, USA
