REVIEW Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy A Practitioner's Guide ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB SUMMARY å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ¹ Nancy McWilliams Addressing the art and science of psychodynamic treatment Nancy McWilliams distills the essential principles of clinical practice including effective listening and talking; transference and countertransference; emotional safety; and an empathic attuned attitude toward the patient. Great dense book with a personal view that shares the perspective of a therapist and all the hurdles they face running into client outside of the office how to charge money or receive presents how to deal with the emotional connection going too far The book has cases The book also helps you understand what are good and bad practices and how to choose a therapist Another view hat the book offers is how to have a difficult conversation with people or friends and how not to damage yourself or your relationshipHere are some of the excerpts that I likedMy experiences with contracting for safety that is getting suicidal patients to make a pledge not to hurt themselves as a condition for therapy have been unimpressive My general sense is that such contracts are often urged by the professional or employing agency as a way of reducing liability and assuaging the anxiety of the therapist and that they have little effect on ensuring actual safety Not that reducing one s liability is an unseemly practice in this litigious age but a number of suicidal individuals have told me that they eventually caved in to pressures to sign an agreement not to kill themselves while privately retaining suicide as an option In fact some have said that their willingness to keep on living has depended on their knowing that if the psychic pain were to get too bad they would have an out Given that psychodynamic therapy is based on honesty and that colluding in a fiction for purposes of risk management is hardly an expression of candorthe therapist may have to tolerate a patient s refusal to give a guarantee Otherwise one is teaching that dishonesty is the price of relationship a lesson that cannot fail to corrupt psychotherapy at the core Especially when the patient will not swear off lethal intentions one should repeatedly even relentlessly investigate the current suicidal risk and be willing to hospitalize an acutely self destructive personThe psychotherapy situation naturally elicits love from clients In fact it does so in such a reliable way that Martin Bergmann 1987 p 213 has observed For centuries men and women have searched for mandrake roots and other substances from which a love potion could be brewed And then a Jewish Viennese physician uncovered love s secret The secret is to listen carefully to be genuinely interested in the other person to react in an accepting and nonshaming way to his or her disclosures and to make no demands that the other party meet one s emotional needs defining aspects of the psychoanalytic arrangementI remember Otto Kernberg once talking about a woman he had treated who insisted that the only condition under which she would ever believe that he cared about her was if he would kill her Her rationale was that if he were to murder her he would finally be verifying that her pain was in fact so unbearable that the only humane option was to put her out of her misery and on top of the obvious love in that action he would be demonstrably elevating her needs above his own wishes to avoid criticism and stay out of jail When he told this story the audience of therapists murmured in a tone of polite sympathy for his clinical challenge but they were much deeply and delightedly engaged a couple of moments later when he added And you know for a while I couldn t figure out what was wrong with her argument Sometimes we get drenched by the storm the client brings into the consulting room and can only wait it out insisting on enforcing safety precautions that make sense to us until we find some way to redefine the turbulence so that it can be seen as offering new possibilities cf Benjamin 1995What the subjectively empty client tends to learn in therapy is that self esteem is not fed by the accumulation of trophies or conuests or chemical highs but by the development of a sense of internal motivation He or she learns to look inside for what feels true rather than outside for what feels transiently diverting and to accept what is rather than striving for a perfectionistic ideal This shift does not result from moral instruction Rather something about the process of extracting meaning from the smallest clinical incidents contributes to the capacity to be in the moment and to enjoy the here and now without continually comparing it to some fantasied better time In Chapter 3 I commented on how much is learned especially by clients suffering from a sense of emptiness or fraudulence from the therapist s willingness to acknowledge mistakes and limitations without seeming devastated The fact that the therapist maintains a robust sense of self esteem in the absence of perfectionism can make a strong impression on this kind of patient يأجوج ومأجوج من الوجود حتى الفناء understand what are
