We all experience loneliness at some time in our lives and it often motivates people, consciously or otherwise, to enter treatment. Yet it is rarely explicitly addressed in psychoanalytic literature. Loneliness and Longing rectifies this oversight by thoroughly exploring this painful psychological state.

In this book contributors address the inner sense of loneliness that is feeling alone even in the company of others by drawing on different aspects of loneliness and longing. Topics covers include:

* loneliness in the consulting room

* the relationship between loneliness and love

* the effects of social networking and the internet

* how loneliness changes throughout the life-cycle

* healing the analysts loneliness.

Loneliness and Longing draws on both theory and practice to discuss ways to help people to understand and cope with this important emotional state, encouraging them to make loneliness and longing less pervasive in their lives. This will be ideal reading for analysts, psychotherapists, and related practitioners facing the challenges of loneliness in their consulting rooms.
