Psychoanalytic Understanding of Violence & Suicide

Psychoanalytic Understanding of Violence & Suicide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This pioneering volume presents the intensive psychoanalytic treatment of patients who have committed serious acts of violence either against others or themselves. Although there is a vast literature on aggression, comparatively little has been written on the issue of violence and even fewer clinical discussions have been published on the violent patient. In the process of reading each individual chapter, identifying the richness and complexity of each individual analysis and each analyst's imaginative understanding of their patients, crucial themes underpinning the analysis of the violence patient are made accessible to the reader. Moreover, in each of the detailed clinical accounts there is a demonstration of the effectiveness of the psychoanalytic treatment.

Although there is a vast literature on aggression, comparatively little has been written on the issue of violence and even fewer clinical discussions have been published on the violent patient.

This pioneering book presents a collection of case studies on the intensive psychoanalytic treatment of patients who have committed serious acts of violence against themselves or others. Each detailed clinical account demonstrates the effectiveness of the psychoanalytic treatment and furthers our understanding of the nature of violence.

The Psychoanalytic Understanding of Violence and Suicide also contains a comprehensive review of the existing literature on aggression and violence from America, England and France, presenting major themes contained in this literature which will be of interest to all those working with violent and suicidal patients.
