This book brings together international contributors to share insight from their theoretical and clinical work with adolescents, considering the different psychopathological responses they see in adolescent patients and how these can be worked with in analysis.

Each chapter addresses a specific topic, focusing on representing the clinical realities facing psychoanalysts in treating adolescents with different types of disturbances at the psychic level. They cover a range of situations and perspectives, including discussion of maternal violence, the erotic field, self-mutilation, and social withdrawal, with a core focus on issues affecting contemporary adolescents. Bringing together a vast range of experience, The Astonishing Adolescent Upheaval in Psychoanalysis presents a new approach which re-establishes the impact of the responses of significant objects in the impasses present in narcissistic suffering.

The Astonishing Adolescent Upheaval in Psychoanalysis will be of great interest to all psychoanalytic and psychodynamic clinicians working with adolescents.

Reviews and Endorsements

The book The Astonishing Adolescent Upheaval in Psychoanalysis is of great interest to any clinical psychoanalyst confronted with the issue of adolescence in the 21st century. Through different perspectives, renowned psychoanalysts of contemporary adolescence present the psychoanalytic tools they use when facing clinical situations that go beyond the emotional turmoil that is expected for this period of life.

This book is brilliant, exciting, and very accessible; this is a rare combination of articles and discussions from well-known psychoanalysts from all over the world, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, and Uruguay. They share their complex views on adolescence, dealing in depth with psychoanalytic theory. Very interesting developments on the clinical association of isolation, violence, addiction are presented in this volume, showing the dynamics and the suffering at play from very early in life, and the economics of the drives in narcissistic organizations. Many analytic cures are presented, a rich material for thinking and education.
