Synopsis: This book is a selection of papers written over 25 years of practising psychoanalytic psychotherapy, of training and supervising psychotherapists, psychodynamic counsellors and supervisors. It reflects a preoccupation with the growth and diversification of counselling and psychotherapy, with the imperatives of training, supervision and regulation, and with the significant changes in the profession due to the invention of brief, time-limited, intermittent and recurrent psychotherapy.An overall theme is the conviction that what patients and therapists share is vulnerability, and that the therapist is a 'wounded healer', whose reparative tendency informs his professional choice, his therapeutic empathy and his capacity to bear the rigours of therapeutic work. Thus an unconscious connection between the helper and the helped is the driving force of every therapeutic relationship, for better and for worse. Its responsible management requires thorough training, ongoing supervision and a firm frame in order to contain the powerful forces operating when two strangers meet for the purpose of therapy.The range of subjects reflects two decades of professional experience and embraces many distinctive themes, some of which have since been taken further by other writers, like sibling rivalry, frequency of meetings, the methodology of brief therapy, problems of fatherhood, methods of child rearing, identity and abuse. The selection of topics represents the author's thinking as a dedicated clinician who persistently assessed and reassessed in her daily work the techniques and the theoretical assumptions of her clinical and training practice.
About the Author: Gertrud Mander originally worked as a journalist and translator before retraining as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist at the Westminster Pastoral Foundation in London, where she was as a supervisor and trainer of supervisors for twenty three years. She has published widely in the field, mostly in the British Journal of Psychotherapy, where she is a member of the Editorial Board, and the book A PsychodynamicApproach to Brief Therapy. This book is a collection of essays written over two decades and reflects her wide interests in the field of psychotherapy and counseling.
