An examination of the aims and objectives of psychoanalysis and what the discipline is really attempting to achieve.

Reviews and Endorsements

In What Do Psychoanalystst Want? the authors look at the way psychoanalysts have defined analysis on both sides of the Atlantic, decade by decade, from Freud down to the present day. From this basis they develop a theory about aims which is extremely relevant to clinical practice, in which they discuss the issues from the point of view of the conscious and unconscious processes in the psychoanalyst's mind. Besides presenting a concise history of psychoanalysis which will be of interest to a wide audience, this book makes important points for any analyst concerned to research his or her own practice.
