Description

Nine lives--nine people treated in intensive psychoanalytic treatment- are described from within. Their emotional lives, internal struggles, conflicts and anguish are vividly described and understood. Each individual's story is unique and yet these people are tied together by their shared humanity--the human struggles that the sensitive reader can identify with and appreciate. "Man is more human than otherwise," an aphorism put forth by the famous psychiatrist Harry Stack Sullivan, underscores this commonality of human experience. A detailed description of each patient's intensive treatment invites the reader to enter into the patient-therapist relationship, with its intricacies and intimacies, and to then speculate on what is ultimately helpful and what "cures" in the therapeutic process.show more
