Summary and Info
In this important book, Otto F. Kernberg gathers together both previously published articles and extensive new material, to examine such issues as the new psychoanalytic views of homosexuality, bisexuality and the influence of gender in the analytic relationship. He explores the application of psychoanalysis to non-clinical fields, including the problem of psychoanalytic research and its clinical implications, the validation of psychoanalytic interventions in the clinical process and the challenges of psychoanalytic education. He shows how psychoanalysis can help in addressing such problems as socially sanctioned violence, and asserts the relevance of object relations theory and its compatibility with Freud's dual drive theory.
