9780415199124: A Mind of One's Own: A Psychoanalytic View of Self and Object (The New Library of Psychoanalysis)

This collection of papers, written over the last six years by Robert Caper, focuses on the importance of distinguishing self from object in psychological development.

Robert Caper demonstrates the importance this psychological disentanglement plays in the therapeutic effect of psychoanalysis.

In doing so he demonstrates what differentiates the practice of psychoanalysis from psychotherapy; while psychotherapy aims to ease the patient towards "good mental health" through careful suggestion; psychoanalysis allows the patient to discover him/herself, with the self wholly distinguished from other people and other objects.

About the Author:

Robert Caper is a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the Psychoanalytic Center of California. He is author of Immaterial Facts:Freud's Discover of Psychic Reality and Klein's Development of His Work (1988).

Review:

"Caper writes with clarity and lightness of touch synthesising ideas and untangling confusions in a delightfully direct style free from fluff or wordiness" - P. Garvey, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
