Dianna T. Kenny

Author Dianna T. Kennyabout this book: This book is about psychoanalysis as it is practiced today. Because there are many misconceptions about this form of therapy, a book that is accessible to an informed lay public as well as to professionals practising in the field of mental health e.g., psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists and clinicians - is needed to correct misunderstandings and to provide an overview of the treatment developed by Sigmund Freud over 120 years ago.

The book begins with a review of the key terms and concepts. The author then interviews four leading practitioners in the field who practice four different types of psychotherapy - object relations (Ron Spielman - Australia), attachment informed psychotherapy (Jeremy Holmes – UK), existential-relational psychoanalysis (Robert Stolorow - USA) and intensive short term dynamic psychotherapy (Allan Abbass - Canada).

Each therapist is asked to comment on a script of a therapy session. The book concludes with an analysis of the similarities and differences between these contemporary forms of psychoanalysis.

The book is an ideal teaching tool for students of clinical psychology and psychotherapy and for those in training as psychoanalysts. It can also help those contemplating a psychoanalysis to choose a particular form of therapy. All those interested in gaining insight into their own psychological processes will also find this book a fascinating read.
