5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant clinical description of transference and counter transference with psychotic patients., 8 April 2013
This review is from: Collected Papers on Schizophrenia and Related Subjects (Maresfield Library) (Paperback)
Searles talks about his psycho-analytic work with psychotic patients at Chestnut Lodge,focusing on the transferential and counter-transferential elements of the work.Absolutely brilliant.As a young and new therapist I found his work extremely helpful in working with a whole range of clients, certainly less severely ill than his caseload, but nevertheless demanding.He also discusses a wide range of theoretical inputs, which he sets his clinical experience into.To understand the significance of very early development issues in the personality, I cannot recommend this book too highly.I am still awe struck by Searles use of his own feelings, thoughts and imagination to engage with and help highly disturbed individuals.
