The New Psychoanalysis explores and explains important developments in psychoanalytic thought and practice since FreudOs death in 1939. Drawing on the experience of her many years of clinical work with patients, as well research and teaching in the training institutes she directs, Phyllis W. Meadow offers convincing testimony to the power of the unconscious forces that drive our thinking, feeling, and behaving. She shows how the mind unfolds in the face of tensions native to the unconscious life, and how psychoanalysis is applicable to the full range of emotional disorders. This highly accessible book is ideal for the therapist or psychologist, as well as the social theorist or general reader, who is concerned with the hold of aggression on the lives of human beings facing a world still as violent and destructive as it was in FreudOs day. The introduction, by Charles Lemert, provides a challenging essay on the connections between psychoanalytic and social theories.
