Reviews and Endorsements

‘A remarkable contribution to psychoanalysis, offering theoretical presentations together with clinical vignettes organised around the motif of moving from reverie to interpretation. It will be useful to a wide range of mental heath professionals including Kleinians, Bionians, and others interested in exploring these concepts and these ways of thinking and working. Dana Blue and Caron Harrang have done an outstanding job of editing this compilation. Furthermore, they have made it possible to now share the knowledge and experience of the EBOR Conference contributors, who came from far and wide, with many more like-minded clinicians all around the world.’

‘This book, which reflects aptly the work of analysts as well as artists and other creative individuals, is a fine testimony to how Bion’s analytic descendants have carried on his work in a manner which would have been to his liking. By this, I mean a creative engagement with an essential aspect of the analyst’s armamentarium, the capacity for reverie, or 'dreaming with one’s eyes open' as one listens to one’s patients. Since all the chapters take up aspects of clinical and artistic reverie, it is altogether fitting that this compilation be regarded as part of the continuing tradition of how Bion’s distillation of Kleinian psychoanalysis has itself been received and worked with by analysts interested in his work, not just in Europe and South America, but in the United States as well.’
- Joseph Aguayo, PhD, FIPA, training and supervising psychoanalyst at the Psychoanalytic Center of California and co-editor with Barnet Malin of Wilfred Bion: Los Angeles Seminars and Supervision
