Robert Bly, renowned poet and author of the ground-breaking bestseller Iron John, mingles essay and verse to explore the Shadow -- the dark side of the human personality -- and the importance of confronting it.
In reasoned progression he outlined core psychoanalytic concepts, such as repression, free association and libido. Of the various English translations of Freud's major works to appear in his lifetime, only one was authorized by Freud himself: The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud under the general editorship of James Strachey. Freud approved the overall editorial plan, specific renderings of key words and phrases, and the addition of valuable notes, from bibliographical and explanatory. Many of the translations were done by Strachey himself; the rest were prepared under his supervision. The result was to place the Standard Edition in a position of unquestioned supremacy over all other existing versions. Newly designed in a uniform format, each new paperback in the Standard Edition opens with a biographical essay on Freud's life and work --along with a note on the individual volume--by Peter Gay, Sterling Professor of History at Yale.

Michael Eigen, Ph.D., author of The Psychotic Core and The Electrical Tightrope, is a senior member, Board of Directors, and control/training analyst at the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis; Associate Clinical Professor, New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychoanalysis; faculty and supervisor, Institute for Expressive Analysis and New Hope Guild.
In essence, Eigen's book gives witness to a central issue of Aeschylus--we suffer into knowledge--and shows how it is embodied and animated on the stage of the clinical setting with its two throbbing props, couch and chair.

No other psychoanalyst writing today can command this repertoire of tones and voices. To read Eigen is to experience the moment-by-moment changes of heart that for him constitute the analytic encounter. The shrewd eloquente, the cunning sympathy and humor at work in this book are unique in psychoanalysis. lt should be celebrated with the paradoxes it is inspired by.
- Adam Phillips, Author of Winnicott
Eigen shares two cases: a woman who manifested spirituality to the exclusion of facing hovering psychological problems, and a man whose virtual obsession with psychological "truths" led him to omit spiritual development. This book will be of interest not only to therapists but to all who are interested in the spiritual in human life.
- Jean Sanville, Editor of Clinical Social Work Journal and author of The Playground of Psychoanalytic Therapy.
Here is a practical guide to doing psychotherapy which, unlike most other manuals that present an idealized view of the therapist-patient relationship, shows what the therapeutic encounter is really like. Using detailed excerpts from clinical protocols, and without omitting the inevitable mistakes that a therapist will make, Dr. Basch draws the reader into the therapeutic dialogue as a way of experiencing what actually happens in the course of treatment with cases of varying complexity.The author focuses on the treatment of the kind of patients who, though likely to make up the majority of a therapist's practice, are generally ignored in training guides--those who are not acutely disturbed, whose pathology is minimal, but whose personal relationships are usually troubled, unsatisfying, and frequently destructive. Dr. Basch's approach, developed over twenty years of practicing and teaching psychotherapy, is dynamic and analytic in that he considers the management of the transference relationship as basic to the treatment process. however, he avoids the rigidities often associated with the classical psychoanalytic position and does not hesitate to incorporate into his teaching methods techniques associated with other "schools" of therapy. Throughout, he stresses building on the patient's strengths rather than searching for pathology.This wise and useful book not only will prove invaluable to all beginning psychotherapists--whether their background is one of psychiatry, psychology, or social work--but will also serve as an ideal refresher for those more experienced in clinical work.
Schaef and Fassel show how managers, workers, and organization members exhibit the classic symptoms of addiction: denying and avoiding problems, assuming that there is no other way of acting, and manipulating events to maintain the status quo.
