Antonino Ferro uses clinical material such as detailed reports of sessions, together with client's analytic histories, to develop Bion's original findings and illustrate complex concepts in the field of psychoanalytic technique. These concepts include: interpretive modalities; the end of analysis; psychosomatic pathologies; and narcissism.

Mind Works: Technique and Creativity in Psychoanalysis also suggests that dreaming is a fundamental moment in analytic work, and Ferro discusses how dreams can go beyond the present to become a continuous act of the mind in the waking state, allowing internal and external stimuli to be transformed into thoughts and emotions.
