Until recently, psychoanalysis has failed - on either a theoretical or clinical level - to keep pace with the significant changes in the type of patient seeking psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy. This book provides new ideas - on both a theoretical and clinical level - to fill the void left by the therapeutic collapse en route to contemporary psychotherapy. The Self Psychology of Addiction and Its Treatment presents an evolved self-psychological model of addiction, including emphasis on clinical approaches to treat challenging narcissistic patients with major forms of addiction. This is done via an in-depth study of the state of psychoanalysis and an introduction to the model and its place within the therapy of addicted patients. Cases are used to represent and illustrate analytic therapy with the five major forms of addiction.
