Psychoanalytic Studies of Change presents recent studies of the process and outcome of psychoanalytic therapy with an integrative perspective.

A recurrent challenge in the discussion of therapeutic outcome is the gap between empirical, quantitative studies, reporting results on a group level, and the clinician’s interest in complex mechanisms of change presupposing microanalysis of dynamic interaction processes. This book bridges that gap via dynamic contributions from a variety of authors. Quantitative and qualitative studies are connected, epistemological and conceptual research is emphasized as specific domains, and in-depth clinical case studies are highlighted. The book also comprises several new contributions to epistemology and conceptual research, as well as chapters discussing the challenge of combining qualitative and quantitative methods in studying process and outcome.

Psychoanalytic Studies of Change will meet a need specifically within psychoanalysis for up-to-date research, but also provides an overview of the latest empirical research on psychoanalysis for a broader clinical and academic group of readers. It will appeal to psychoanalysts in practice and in training.

Reviews and Endorsements

This book invites you to immerse yourself in recent psychoanalytic contributions to the study of psychic change and unconscious processes. Written by authoritative voices in the field, the chapters cover an impressive range of expertise, from clinical to statistical and developmental studies, and from neuroscience to a metacognitive analysis of self-reflection. An invaluable guide, this book skillfully navigates the complex terrain of contemporary psychoanalytic research, bridging multiple methodologies and perspectives.

Ricardo Bernardi, Professor Emeritus, School of Medicine, Uruguay

This book on psychoanalytic studies of change processes presents groundbreaking psychoanalytic and interdisciplinary research on complex interactional processes that may hinder or promote development. It gives insight into the specifics of psychoanalysis as a scientific discipline and demonstrates how early experiences form the personality and how psychoanalytic processes may promote new development given its focus on deep emotional processes. The book is highly recommended for clinicians but also for researchers who want to understand better how enduring changes may develop.

Sverre Varvin, Professor Emeritus, Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway
