Gutes Ex.; Umschlag gering berieben. - Englisch. - This volume introduces a new era for the techniques of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. The bipersonal field concept establishes the patient at one polarity of the field and the therapist at the other, and views them as interacting along an interface within the frame of the field. Dr. Langs meticulously examines the contributions of both participants, investigating their influence on the therapeutic potential of the field and on the nature and meaning of their own interaction. This book is based on the transcription of five detailed case presentations made to Dr. Langs in a seminar on the technique of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. In his running commentary, Dr. Langs finds ample opportunity to demonstrate the pathology placed into the field by the participants, as well as their respective conscious and unconscious curative endeavors. He brings many new and important perspectives to the therapeutic process. ... (Verlagstext) // INHALT : ...
