Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis

By Rosemary M. Balsam
Why has the female body been marginalised in psychoanalysis, with a focus on female problems only? How can we begin to think about body pleasure, power, competition and aggression as normal in females?  Rosemary Balsam argues that re-tracing theoretical steps back to the biological body’s attributes is fruitful in searching the clues of our mental development.

The Thinking Heart : Three Levels of Psychoanalytic Therapy with Disturbed Children

By Anne Alvarez
This book is a natural sequel to Live Company, Anne Alvarez’ highly influential and now classic book about working with severely disturbed and damaged children. Building on 50 years’ experience as a child and adolescent psychotherapist, Alvarez uses detailed and vivid clinical examples of different interactions between therapist and client, and explores the reasons why one type of therapeutic understanding can work rather than another.

By Thomas H. Ogden
