Synopsis:

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).

Book Description Routledge, 2007. Condition: Gut. XII; 165 S.; 24 cm; kart. Gutes Ex. - Englisch. // Dr Caper first approaches the problem of rigorously defining psychoanalysis by examining the distinction between psychoanalysis and non-psychoanalytic psychotherapies, then by exploring what emotional problems uniquely characterize a working psychoanalysis, and finally by considering what constitutes psychoanalytic evidence, and how this differs from the type of evidence used in non-psychoanalytic approaches to the mind. He then goes on to consider the constructive and defensive uses of psychoanalytic theory, the relationship between psychoanalysis and artistic and scientific creativity, the relationship between the Oedipus complex and mental independence, and finally offers a critical examination of Klein's concept of an internal object, and Bion's concept of alpha function and his Theory of the Container. Written in a clear and forthright style, A Mind of One's Own provides an excellent analysis of the nature of psychoanalysis, and a stimulating examination of the clinical effectiveness of this form of treatment.
