Beyond the idea of a 'blank screen' and firmly rooted in today's understanding of the mutual give-and-take of conscious and unconscious processes in therapy hours, Karl Konig's Countertransference Analysis examines the therapist's reactions to the patient and how best to use them effectively in treatment.

Text: English (translation)
Original Language: German
Karl Konig's pithy book, Countertransference Analysis, is unusual in its scope, wisdom, and scholarship. It demonstrates once again Konig's ability to synthesize his wide experience in order to bring a fresh point of view to our work. He is knowledgeable about the literature and trends in a wide variety of analytic cultures including American Ego Psychology, British Object Relations, German contemporary psychoanalysis, and international group analysis. But Konig moves beyond book learning to demonstrate a unique personal combination of rigor and flexibility, technical understanding and intuition, wisdom, and common sense. Psychoanalytic veterans and students alike will find this book a treasure house–on the one hand a reference that guides them through the pitfalls common to our work, and on the other hand an essay that penetrates to the very nature of our profession and its challenges. (David E. Scharff)
