Details: Product Description This is the first revised, expanded, and updated edition of Psychoanalytic Terms and Concepts since its third edition in 1990. It presents a scholarly exposition of English-language psychoanalytic terms and concepts, including those from all contemporary schools of theory and practice. Each entry starts with a brief definition that is followed by an explanation of the significance of the term/concept for psychoanalysis, its historical development, and the present-day controversies about best usage. Review Psychiatrists interested in understanding psychoanalytic terms and concepts will find in this work a congenial introduction to complex subject matter...Educators will find it an ideal place to send students to begin their study of psychoanalytic topics, a reflection of the editors' standing as leading teachers of psychoanalytic theory and technique." -- Steven T.
