The Processes of Defense : Trauma, Drives, and Reality a New Synthesis
In this direct and scholarly book, Dr. Joseph Fernando provides the first in-depth exploration and up-to-date revision of the psychoanalytic theory of defenses since Anna Freud's 1936 classic, The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defense. While comprehensive and authoritative, the work is also highly original and clinically relevant, as new concepts such as the zero process and contrast defenses are introduced, illustrated, and explained.
