After Brain Injury: Survivor Stories
After Brain Injury: Survivor Stories was launched in 2014 to meet the need for a series of books aimed at those who have suffered a brain injury, their families and carers, and professionals who are involved in neuropsychological rehabilitation. Brain disorders can be life-changing events with far-reaching consequences. However, in the current climate of cuts in funding and service provision for neuropsychological rehabilitation, there is a risk that people whose lives have been transformed by brain injury are left feeling isolated with little support.

The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families: Best Practice
An innovative new series of books written by clinicians and researchers at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families on key aspects of meeting the challenges to child and adolescent mental health we currently face. Ranging from clinical practice – with titles focussing on infancy through to adolescence – to research and implementation issues around finding out what works for whom, and how to put what works into practice, each book will provide an authoritative and cutting-edge account of current best practice. Clearly and concisely written, the books in this series will be essential reading for professionals concerned with child mental health - psychologists, mental health workers, counsellors and psychotherapists, as well as teachers, youth workers and anyone interested in the education and care sectors.

Art, Creativity, and Psychoanalysis
Series Editor: George Hagman The Art, Creativity, and Psychoanalysis book series seeks to highlight original, cutting edge studies of the relationship between psychoanalysis and the world of art and the psychology of artists, with subject matter including the psychobiography of artists, the creative process, the psychology of aesthetic experience, as well as the aesthetic, creative and artistic aspects of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Art, Creativity, and Psychoanalysis promotes a vision of psychoanalysis as a creative art, the clinical effectiveness of which can be enhanced when we better understand and utilize the artistic and creative processes at its core. The series welcomes proposals from psychoanalytic therapists from all professional groups and theoretical models, as well as artists, art historians and art critics informed by a psychoanalytic perspective.

With over 50 titles spanning subjects from Artificial Intelligence to Women’s Studies, The Basics are an ideal starting point for students seeking to understand a subject area. Each text comes with recommendations for further study and gradually introduces the complexities and nuances within a subject.

The Brain Injuries
A series dedicated to psychological therapies, social interventions and psychosocial issues following acquired brain injury, emphasising both theoretical exploration and the 'how-to' of therapeutic work. These titles stand in contrast with previous clinical titles in the brain injury literature that have been assessment-focused and offered little in the way of intervention. Every jobbing clinician and therapist working with survivors of brain injury and their significant others should have this series on their shelves.

Controversies in Psychoanalysis
The International Psychoanalytical Association Controversies in Psychoanalysis Series Theoretical and clinical progress in psychoanalysis continues to develop new concepts and to reconsider old ones, often in contradiction with each other.

The Interviews with Icons
In this new series of “posthumous interviews” famous psychoanalysts are resurrected from the dead and are invited for a frank and detailed conversation about their lives and their work. Donald Winnicott returns to his consulting room in London’s Chester Square to reminisce about his childhood, his training, his work at Paddington Green Children’s Hospital, his technical experiments with patients, and even the morning of his death and, also, provides readers with a comprehensive survey of his many contributions to developmental psychology and to clinical practice. Sigmund Freud pays another visit to Vienna’s renowned Café Landtmann, where he had often enjoyed reading newspapers and sipping coffee. Freud explains how he came to invent psychoanalysis, speaks bluntly about his feelings of betrayal by Carl Gustav Jung, recounts his flight from the Nazis, and so much more, all the while explaining his theories of symptom formation and psychosexuality. John Bowlby takes us on a grouse-shooting expedition – his favourite weekend passion – through the English countryside, while lambasting his colleagues for their failures to understand the true origins of mental illness. Melanie Klein teaches us some of her favourite kitchen recipes while discussing the art of talking with patients. These posthumous interviews – beautifully written, concisely composed, steeped in historical rigour, and full of hitherto unpublished archival gems – will provide students and qualified professionals alike with a master class in psychological theory and practice, comfortably contained within one portable, affordable, and lavishly illustrated volume.

The series' books will be designed to be easily consulted and to provide informative answers in defined areas of psychoanalytic thought. Each book will provide contemporary and ideas on a topic relevant to contemporary psychoanalysis – from the unconscious to intersubjectivity, enactment and neuropsychoanalysis.

The Karnac Developmental Psychology
Each book in this series focuses on a particular age range of a child's development. The emphasis is on the description of the typical ways in which the child, at each of these stages, experiences himself in his world. As he develops, the child has different needs, abilities, and resources that underlie his interaction with parents, relatives, and the world at large. The objective is to illustrate how these unfolding characteristics of the child influence and are influenced by the people in his world. It is only careful and (usually) long-term observation that will allow one to identify elements in the infant's or child's behaviour that are likely to be part of his inborn personality.

Karnac Introductions
Written in a jargon-free style, the Karnac Introductions series exists as a “gateway” into a particular subject.

Series Editor: Jill Savege Scharff

The Lines of Development
This series focuses on a spectrum of psychoanalytic leaders whose ideas have generated a tradition of thinking and working in particular ways. By definition, such pioneers venture further into unknown or unclaimed territories - opening up new areas of theoretical inquiry and/or therapeutic work. As trailblazers, they often inspire others to expand their work and to build on their ideas through research, clinical developments, or practical applications. Series Editors: Joan Raphael-Leff, Aleksandar Dimitrijević and Norka Malberg

The Lines of the Symbolic in Psychoanalysis
Psychoanalytic clinical and theoretical work is always embedded in specific linguistic and cultural contexts and carries their traces, traces which this series attends to in its focus on multiple contradictory and antagonistic ‘lines of the Symbolic’. This series takes its cue from Lacan’s psychoanalytic work on three registers of human experience, the Symbolic, the Imaginary and the Real, and employs this distinctive understanding of cultural, communication and embodiment to link with other traditions of cultural, clinical and theoretical practice beyond the Lacanian symbolic universe. Lines of the Symbolic in Psychoanalysis provides a reflexive reworking of theoretical and practical issues, translating psychoanalytic writing from different contexts, grounding that work in the specific histories and politics that provide the conditions of possibility for its descriptions and interventions to function. The series makes connections between different cultural and disciplinary sites in which psychoanalysis operates, questioning the idea that there could be one single correct reading and application of Lacan. Its authors trace their own path, their own line through the Symbolic, situating psychoanalysis in relation to debates which intersect with Lacanian work, explicating it, extending it and challenging it. Series Editor: Ian Parker

The Neuro-Disability and Psychotherapy

New Directions in Self Psychology
Series Editor: George Hagman Since Heinz Kohut’s The Analysis of the Self was published in 1971, psychoanalytic Self Psychology has developed into a theory and mode of treatment which is complex and multi-dimensional as well as vital and still evolving. Enlisting authors from a variety of disciplines, and under the editorship of psychoanalyst and social worker George Hagman, the New Directions in Self Psychology: Clinical, Research and Cultural Applications book series will examine the state-of-the–art in Self Psychology, providing an opportunity for authors to explore and extend the model in new directions. Once limited to a small group centered in Chicago, Self Psychology currently has adherent organizations on every continent. Over the past half century, Self Psychology has influenced academic disciplines such as history, political science, art history, and social theory, as well as psychological research into child development, neuropsychology, addiction and psychopathology. Its influence on psychotherapy has been enormous, with many analytic and non-analytic models benefiting from its concepts such as motivational interviewing, grief therapies, addiction treatments, and person-centered counseling. Most importantly, Self Psychology has continued to thrive in the field of psychoanalysis, being elaborated and augmented by the contribution of many subspecialties such as motivational systems theory, Intersubjectivity theory, relational psychoanalysis, systems theory and complexity. The volumes in this series will be devoted to a variety of topics including, but not limited to, couple’s treatment, addiction, depression and bereavement, intersubjective Self Psychology, adolescence, infant research, Relational Self Psychology, culture and historical theory. Specific clinical subjects will be highlighted such as the selfobject transference, rethinking resistance, new understandings of empathy, neuro-psychoanalysis, relationality, trauma, and grief. The editor invites contributions from across these areas of practice and the subject areas previously mentioned toward the promotion of vital culture of debate and experimentation in the field of Self Psychology.

The New International Library of Group Analysis
Drawing on the seminal ideas of British, European and American group analysts, psychoanalysts, social psychologists and social scientists, the books in this series focus on the study of small and large groups, organisations and other social systems, and on the study of the transpersonal and transgenerational sociality of human nature. NILGA books will be required reading for the members of professional organisations in the field of group analysis, psychoanalysis, and related social sciences. They will be indispensable for the "formation" of students of psychotherapy, whether they are mainly interested in clinical work with patients or in consultancy to teams and organisational clients within the private and public sectors.

New Library of Psychoanalysis
The aim of the New Library of Psychoanalysis is to maintain the high level of scholarship of the previous series, to provide a forum for increasing understanding between psychoanalysis and other disciplines and to increase the interest of the general book-reading public in psychoanalysis.

Together they provide a complementary framework to introduce, promote and enhance the development of the coaching profession. Series Editor: David A. Lane

The Psychoanalysis and Popular Culture
This series builds on the work done since 2009 by the Media and the Inner World research network. It aims to consider the relationship between psychoanalysis and popular culture as a lived experience that is ever more emotionalised in the contemporary age. In contrast to many scholarly applications of psychoanalysis, works in this series set out to explore the creative tensions of thinking about cultural experience and its processes whilst also paying attention to observations from both the clinical and scholarly fields. What can academic applications of psychoanalysis learn from the clinical perspective and how might the critical insights afforded by scholarly work cast new light on clinical experience? The series provides space for a dialogue between these different groups with a view to evoking new perspectives on the values and pitfalls of a psychoanalytic approach to ideas of selfhood, society and popular culture. In particular, the series strives to develop a psycho-cultural approach by foregrounding the usefulness of a post-Freudian, object relations perspective for examining the importance of emotional relationships and experience. We nevertheless welcome proposals from all fields of psychoanalytic enquiry. Series Editors: Caroline Bainbridge and Candida Yates

Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in China
This peer-reviewed journal proposes to explore the introduction of psychoanalysis, psychoanalytic therapy, and the wider application of psychoanalytic ideas into China. It aims to have articles authored by Chinese and Western contributors, to explore ideas that apply to the Chinese clinical population, cultural issues relevant to the practice of analysis and psychotherapy, and to the cultural interface between Western ideas underpinning psychoanalysis, and the richness of Chinese intellectual and philosophical ideas that analysis must encounter in the process of its introduction. The journal will be published first in English and is also planned to be published in Chinese through a collaboration with a Chinese partner. We will feature theoretical and clinical contributions, philosophical and cultural explorations, applications such as the analytic study of art, cinema and theatre, social aspects of analytic thought, and wider cultural and social issues that set the context for clinical practice.

Psychoanalysis and Women
This series grew from the work of the International Psychoanalytical Association Committee on Women and Psychoanalysis (COWAP). Publications further the conversations on women, sexuality, gender, men, and psychoanalysis, and intersections with diversity and cross-cultural experience. We value written exchanges between psychoanalysis and related disciplines of gender studies, anthropology, sociology, politics, philosophy, arts and activism. The series editorial board is comprised of Paula Ellman (Editor-in-Chief, North America), Carolina Bacchi (North America) Sara Boffito (Italy), Lesley Caldwell (UK), Amrita Narayana (India), and Paula Escribens Pareja (Peru).

Psychoanalysis in a New Key
This series publishes books that share the aims psychoanalysts have always had, but that approach them differently. The books in the series are not expected to advance any particular theoretical agenda, although to this date most have been written by analysts from the Interpersonal and Relational orientations.

Psychoanalytic Field Theory
This series was initiated in 2015 as a new subseries of the Psychoanalytic Inquiry Book Series. It publishes books on subjects relevant to the continuing development of psychoanalytic field theory. The emphasis of this series is on contemporary work that includes a vision of the future for psychoanalytic field theory. Since the middle of the twentieth century forms of psychoanalytic field theory emerged in different geographic parts of the world with different objectives, heuristic principles, and clinical techniques. Taken together they form a family of psychoanalytic perspectives that employs a concept of a bi-personal psychoanalytic field. The Psychoanalytic Field Theory Book Series seeks to represent this pluralism in its publications. Books on field theory in all its diverse forms are of interest in this series. Both theoretical works and discussions of clinical technique will be published in this series. The series editors are especially interested in selecting manuscripts which actively promote the understanding and further expansion of psychoanalytic field theory. Part of the mission of the series is to foster communication amongst psychoanalysts working in different models, in different languages, and in different parts of the world.

Psychological Insights for Understanding COVID-19
This series aims to highlight important themes in psychological science that engage with people’s unprecedented experience of the Covid-19 pandemic. These short, accessible volumes draw together chapters as they originally appeared before covid-19 descended on the world but demonstrate how researchers and professionals in psychological science had developed theory and research on key topics germane to the global pandemic.

Psychological Issues
The basic mission of Psychological Issues is to contribute to the further development of psychoanalysis as a science, as a respected scholarly enterprise, as a theory of human behavior, and as a therapeutic method. Over the past 50 years, the series has focused on fundamental aspects and foundations of psychoanalytic theory and clinical practice, as well as on work in related disciplines relevant to psychoanalysis. Psychological Issues does not aim to represent or promote a particular point of view. The contributions cover broad and integrative topics of vital interest to all psychoanalysts as well as to colleagues in related disciplines. They cut across particular schools of thought and tackle key issues, such as the philosophical underpinnings of psychoanalysis, psychoanalytic theories of motivation, conceptions of therapeutic action, the nature of unconscious mental functioning, psychoanalysis and social issues, and reports of original empirical research relevant to psychoanalysis. The authors often take a critical stance toward theories and offer a careful theoretical analysis and conceptual clarification of the complexities of theories and their clinical implications, drawing upon relevant empirical findings from psychoanalytic research as well as from research in related fields. The Editorial Board continues to invite contributions from social/behavioral sciences such as anthropology and sociology, from biologcal sciences such as physiology and the various brain sciences, and from scholarly humanistic disciplines such as philosophy, law, and ethics. Series Editor: David Wolitzky

The Psychology of Everything
People are fascinated by psychology, and what makes humans tick. Why do we think and behave the way we do? We’ve all met armchair psychologists claiming to have the answers, and people that ask if psychologists can tell what they’re thinking. The Psychology of Everything is a series of books which debunk the popular myths and pseudo-science surrounding some of life’s biggest questions. The series explores the hidden psychological factors that drive us, from our subconscious desires and aversions, to our natural social instincts. Absorbing, informative, and always intriguing, each book is written by an expert in the field, examining how research-based knowledge compares with popular wisdom, and showing how psychology can truly enrich our understanding of modern life. Applying a psychological lens to an array of topics and contemporary concerns - from sex, to fashion, to conspiracy theories - The Psychology of Everything will make you look at everything in a new way.

The objective of OPUS is to promote and develop the study of conscious and unconscious organisational and societal dynamics through educational activities, research; consultancy and training; and, the publication and dissemination of these activities for the public benefit.

Relational Perspectives
The Relational Perspectives Book Series (RPBS) publishes books that grow out of or contribute to the relational tradition in contemporary psychoanalysis. The term relational psychoanalysis was first used by Greenberg and Mitchell to bridge the traditions of interpersonal relations, as developed within interpersonal psychoanalysis and object relations, as developed within contemporary British theory. But, under the seminal work of the late Stephen A. Mitchell, the term relational psychoanalysis grew and began to accrue to itself many other influences and developments. Various tributaries—interpersonal psychoanalysis, object relations theory, self psychology, empirical infancy research, feminism, queer theory, sociocultural studies and elements of contemporary Freudian and Kleinian thought—flow into this tradition, which understands relational configurations between self and others, both real and fantasied, as the primary subject of psychoanalytic investigation.

The Routledge Wilfred R. Bion Studies
The contributions of Wilfred R. Bion are among the most cited in the analytic literature. Their appeal lies not only in their content and explanatory value, but in their generative potential. Although Bion’s training and many of his clinical instincts were deeply rooted in the classical tradition of Melanie Klein, his ideas have a potentially universal appeal. Rather than emphasizing a particular psychic content (e.g., Oedipal conflicts in need of resolution; splits that needed to be healed; preconceived transferences that must be allowed to form and flourish, etc.), he tried to help open and prepare the mind of the analyst (without memory, desire or theoretical preconception) for the encounter with the patient. Bion’s formulations of group mentality and the psychotic and non-psychotic portions of the mind, his theory of thinking and emphasis on facing and articulating the truth of one’s existence so that one might truly learn first hand from one’s own experience, his description of psychic development (alpha function and container/contained) and his exploration of O are "non-denominational" concepts that defy relegation to a particular school or orientation of psychoanalysis. Consequently, his ideas have taken root in many places…. and those ideas continue to inform many different branches of psychoanalytic inquiry and interest. It is with this heritage and its promise for the future developments of psychoanalysis in mind that we present The Routledge Wilfred R. Bion Studies Book Series. This series gathers together under newly emerging and continually evolving contributions to psychoanalytic thinking that rest upon Bion’s foundational texts and explore and extend the implications of his thought.
