Addressing the art and science of psychodynamic treatment, Nancy McWilliams distills the essential principles of clinical practice, including effective listening and talking; transference and countertransference; emotional safety; and an empathic, attuned attitude toward the patient. The book describes the values, assumptions, and clinical and research findings that guide the psychoanalytic enterprise, and shows how to integrate elements of other theoretical perspectives. It discusses the phases of treatment and covers such neglected topics as educating the client about the therapeutic process, handling complex challenges to boundaries, and attending to self-care. Presenting complex information in personal, nontechnical language enriched by in-depth clinical vignettes, this is an essential psychoanalytic work and training text for therapists.

  1. Personligt och ärligt
    MBK, 16 april 2017

    McWilliams beskrivning av psykoterapi utifrån psykoanalytisk grund är som en blandning av fackbok och roman; mängder av anekdoter och små historier varvas med referenser till forskning eller andra skrifter.
    Just dessa anekdoter och den personliga stilen gör att jag tycker att man får en god bild vad en sådan här terapi innebär. Dock kan jag sakna en tydlig struktur i boken.
    Boken tar också upp en mängd olika dilemman och McWilliams ger sin syn genom utvecklade resonemang, på detta sä... Läs hela recensionen

McWilliams presents a text that will be useful to all social workers, whether or not they primarily have a psychoanalytic orientation. She provides useful information on, for example, how to develop a trusting relationship, how to overcome communication barriers, and how to deal with myriad technical problems, such as challenges to the practitioner and to the boundaries that are required in practice. Her writing style is clear, jargon-free, and full of useful examples, and she is supportive of the integration of her ideas with other approaches. A much-needed book in the social work field.--Charles Garvin, PhD, School of Social Work (Emeritus), University of Michigan Books by Nancy McWilliams used in unison make the best psychodynamic resources I have yet encountered in more than 60 years in the field.--Robert C. Lane, PhD, Department of Psychology, Nova Southeastern University A cornucopia of wise and sensitive reflections on psychoanalytic psychotherapy. McWilliams delineates the felt core of therapeutic work shared by workers of many schools, but rarely articulated so well. She gives the beginner a 'taste of the apple' in a hands-on and feeling way, and bolsters the spirit of the old-timer, who will recognize the fruit of attentive and caring practice.--Michael Eigen, PhD, author of The Sensitive Self Nancy McWilliams's book reads like a conversation with a master therapist, addressing the most important questions about facilitating the therapeutic process. Although a psychoanalyst herself, Dr. McWilliams makes frequent, respectful references to the other major theoretical schools, and gives practical advice that will help any new or seasoned therapist acquire skills for understanding and treating clients.--Karen J. Maroda, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Medical College of Wisconsin This book addresses a daunting range of issues. How can therapists set limits with acting-out patients? What did Freud really say about behavior change? Why should practitioners have their own psychotherapy? In an era that scorns depth psychology in favor of the quick fix, Nancy McWilliams' work is a beacon of sane reflection. She sees psychoanalysis not as a clinical specialty alone, but as an ethic--a way of thinking that both requires and makes possible the difficult path known as the examined life. This perspicacious, deeply personal work is sure to become a key text for novice and experienced therapists alike.--Deborah Anna Luepnitz, PhD, author of Schopenhauer's Porcupines This is vintage McWilliams: erudite, elegantly written, thoughtful, and as useful to the seasoned clinician as to the aspiring clinician. Nancy McWilliams has a true talent for tackling complexity without jargon or pretense, and for mixing theoretical originality with good clinical horse sense. Reading this book feels like getting supervision from one of the eminent clinicians of our time.--Drew Westen, PhD, Department of Psychology and Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Emory University Written for therapists, by a therapist, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy manifests the qualities of McWilliams's earlier superb work: a thorough grasp of psychodynamic theory, frequent use of case illustrations, a clear and engaging writing style, and what we might call her 'faith' that a relationship with a skilled and caring therapist can help people become more whole.--Russell Jones, ThD, pastoral counselor, Asheville, North Carolina Readers of McWilliams's previous books will find what they have come to expect: graceful, transparent writing; clear thinking; and a sharpshooter's aim on critical issues. Reading this book is like going on rounds with a loved and trusted professor whose teaching is conversational, collegial, and deep. McWilliams speaks her mind confidently. Her thinking embraces all the therapies derived from psychoanalysis, integrating them under the rubric of honesty. Her book fulfills the promise of its title, addressing both theory and the practi
