The comprehensive The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychoanalysis is the only textbook of its kind in this distinguished field. Both a clinical guide and a reference book, this essential text focuses not only on psychoanalytic theory and treatment but also on developmental issues, research, and the many ways in which theoretical psychoanalysis intersects with contiguous disciplines. The editors, recognized experts in the field, have brought together a remarkable 39 distinguished contributors whose broad-based interests make this textbook a unique reference for interdisciplinary psychoanalysis. The textbook is organized into 6 parts: -Part I: Core ConceptsAIntroduces basic concepts, such as motivation, the dynamic unconscious, the importance of early relationships, internalization, object relations theory, intersubjectivity, and sex/gender. -Part II: Developmental TheoryAAddresses the developmental orientation in contemporary psychoanalysis, developmental theories and their relationship with other disciplines, attachment theory/research, and the psychoanalytic understanding of mental disorders.
-Part III: Treatment and TechniqueADefines what a psychoanalyst is and how he or she is trained; and presents virtually every treatment and technique, from transference/countertransference, treatment theories and their technical consequences, and interpretation, resistance, and process to termination/re-analysis, psychopharmacology, child analysis, and ethics. -Part IV: ResearchADescribes the burgeoning research in psychoanalysis, focusing on outcome, process, developmental, and conceptual research. -Part V: History of PsychoanalysisATraces the history of psychoanalysis, showing how individual personality, world events, and cultural differences have led to varieties of discoveries and perspectives. -Part VI: Psychoanalysis and Related DisciplinesADetails the relevance of interdisciplinary sources to Freud's ideas and the influences of psychology, anthropology, philosophy, literature, the arts, politics, international relations, and neuroscience. Written with a minimum of professional jargon, this in-depth work also includes an extensive glossary and name and subject indexes.
No other psychoanalysis textbook is as comprehensive in scope with such a broad array of contributors as The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychoanalysis. This up-to-date reference will find a wide audience not only among psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, educators, and students but also among professionals in allied disciplines such as psychology, anthropology, literature, the arts, philosophy, politics, and neuroscience. The editors and contributors to this remarkable compendium demonstrate that psychoanalytic approachesAat times in combination with psychopharmacological therapyAcontinue to play a vital role in the treatment of specific psychiatric disorders.

Review quote

"The first textbook of its kind, this brilliant, scholarly tour de force about psychoanalysis is a timely volume that will meet the needs of all mental health workers who are drawn to find out more about how Freud's theory of mind and his talking treatment have evolved into the culture, and are highly relevant to today's practice. The book has been composed by some of the most prominent psychoanalysts in North America. It should become a foundational text for both teaching and treating. It is a storehouse of information about the field for the 21st century. Starting with 'Core Concepts' and ranging from clinical treatment and example to research; to its overlap with the humanities and neuroscience; to the history of its international development; each subsection is filled with richly rewarding and available papers that are highly informative, up-to-date and importantly practically helpful in thinking about patients. The excellent straightforward glossary at the end should demystify the use of psychoanalytic terms and their meanings. The book will be a major boon for trainees, students and practitioners alike."-- "Rosemary H. Balsam, M.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Yale Medical School, Training and Supervising Analyst, Western New England Institute for Psychoanalysis, New Haven, Connecticut"
