This pioneering book presents the intensive psychoanalytic treatment of patients who have committed serious acts of violence either against others or themselves. In each of the detailed clinical accounts there is a demonstration of the effectiveness of the psychoanalytic treatment. By careful tracking of the transference and the countertransference, and questioning specific determinants of the violent behaviour from the standpoint of the vicissitudes of the analytic setting, this book aims to further our understanding of the nature of violence. This book also contains a comprehensive review of the existing literature on aggression and violence from America, England and France, and presents some of the main themes contained in this literature.
