On Bearing Unbearable States of Mind by Ruth Riesenberg-Malcolm
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Providing guidance on how the analyst can encourage the patient to communicate the quality of their often intolerably painful states of mind, this text looks at how he/she can interpret these states, using them as a basis for insight and psychic change in the patient. Employing clinical examples and addressing important areas of Kleinian theory, the author examines the problems that underlie severe pathology and shows how meaningful analytic work can take place, even with very disturbed patients. The text should be a useful and practical guide for psychoanalysts and psychotherapists and all those working in psychological settings with severely disturbed patients.
