During her lifetime, Francoise Dolto revolutionized the psychoanalytic understanding of childhood. As an early pioneer, she emphasized that the child is to be recognized from birth as a person. As a gifted and innovative clinician, Dolto developed her ideas about the unconscious image of the body. An image that is unique to each individual and linked to both a person s history and narcissism, rather then their physicality. It is the symbolic incarnation of a person s desires. Dolto began her career as a member of the IPA, was admired by Winnicot, close to Lacan and influenced by Morgenstern. Her life witnessed an extraordinary evolution from the conservatism of her parents, through the second World War, to the turbulence of Paris in the 1950s and '60s. In the succeeding years, Dolto made a number of original contributions to the understanding of psychosis, neonatology, female sexuality, education and religion. Although controversial, she was able to write both for the general public and for professional colleagues. In 1979, Dolto opened La Maison Verte, as a specialist center for the practical application of her theories. Similar centers have since been created around the world. Dolto continued to write and teach until her death in 1988."

Psychoanalysis: A Critical Introduction is a clearly written and accessible introduction to the main schools of psychoanalysis and the practice of psychotherapy. Unusually, it is written by an academic sociologist specializing in social theory who is also a practising psychotherapist. Craib emphasizes the complexity of psychoanalysis -- an approach that works at many different levels. The unique contribution of this perspective is to understand the creativity of the individual. Psychoanalyis is less about 'curing' mental illness or making people happy, Craib suggests, and more about the understanding of individual lives and about the importance of thinking as well as feeling. Craib argues that psychoanalysis is a depth psychology and a developmental psychology, as well as enabling an understanding of everyday feelings and thoughts. He explores the work of Freud, Klein, Lacan, the object-relations theorists, attachment theory and American self psychology, and feminist developments of Freud's work. In the final section he offers an account of psychoanalytic practice as a way of opening up a life and allowing it to develop in different directions, and of enabling people to deal with the inevitable failures, contradictions and disappointments of being alive. This fascinating book will bridge the gap between academic textbooks on psychoanalysis and the books written primarily for those training in the field. It will be of major interest to students of psychology, social psychology, sociology and social theory, as well as to psychoanalytic practitioners

Das »Handbuch des therapeutischen Erzählens« ist die erste umfassende Veröffentlichung zu dieser kreativen Interventionsform. Sie bietet zweierlei: - eine Fülle vom Autor selbst erdachter therapeutischer Metaphern und Geschichten, aufgeschlüsselt nach Problemstellungen und therapeutischen Zielen.

Aufschluss darüber gibt, wie Suggestion funktioniert, welche Erzähltypen wie wirken und wie Geschichten dialogisch entwickelt werden. Psychotherapeutinnen und Psychotherapeuten aller Schulen und in Beratung Tätige erwartet ein Fundus an Texten, die nach individuellem Bedarf abgewandelt werden können und die therapeutische Arbeit elegant ergänzen.
