This book aims to deconstruct the different theoretical perspectives of psychoanalysis, and reconstruct these concepts in a language that is readily understood. Wherever possible this is meant not to do away with terms that are meaningful, but to attempt to clarify terms and concepts. The book comes in three sections. The first examines Freud's different theories and describes how Freud shifted his emphasis over time. The second section covers all the major post-Freudian theorists: Hartmann and Anna Freud (together in one chapter), Melanie Klein, Fairbairn, Winnicott, Sullivan, Mahler, Kohut, Kernberg, and Bion; and a chapter on the movement from classical theory to contemporary conflict theory. The last section deals with issues raised in contemporary psychoanalysis - issues as they pertain to the clinical situation, and the rationale for a theory of endogenous stimulation.

In the current professional climate, the calls for evidenced-based treatment and the prestige accorded to this emblem, mental health professionals are asking: for what purpose do we seek evidence? For our students? For the public at large? For an inner sense of feeling supported by science? Most disciplines are concerned with cumulative knowledge, aimed toward self-affirmation and self-definition, that is, establishing a sense of legitimacy. The three parts of this volume are directed toward the goal of affirming a public and private sense of the legitimacy of psychoanalysis, thereby shaping professional identity. Each contribution adheres to the precepts of scientific inquiry, with a commitment to affirming or disconfirming clinical propositions, utilizing consensually agreed upon methods of observation, and arriving at inferences that are persuasive and have the potential to move the field forward. Beyond this, each part of this book describes distinct methodologies that generate evidence pertaining to public health policy, the persuasiveness and integrity of our psychoanalytic concepts, and phenomena encountered in daily clinical practice.

This book focuses on the question of the theory of therapeutic action underlying the multiple perspectives in psychoanalysis. The question of how psychoanalysis effects therapeutic change and the methods by which this change is achieved is answered from the perspectives of: ego psychology and modern conflict theory, classical theory, contemporary object relations theory and neo-Kleinian theory, attachment theory, and self psychological theory, as well as total composite theory and pluralistic perspectives. The volume concludes with an exploration of how these theories of therapeutic action diverge and converge, and ultimately what holds these diverse approaches within the boundaries of psychoanalysis. Contributors include the following leading U.S. West Coast psychoanalysts: Hedda Bolgar, Christopher Christian, Michael Diamond, Morris Eagle, Tom Helscher, Nancy Hollander & Stephen Portuges, Beth Kalish, Dan Paul, Leo Rangell, Linda Sobelman, Alan Spivak, Peter Wolson, and Harriet Wrye & Marjorie Schuman.
