Endings and beginnings : on the technique of terminating psychotherapy and psychoanalysis by Herbert J Schlesinger( Book )

"Surveying endings and terminations over the analyst's life course, examining mourning as an anticipation of ending elicited by therapeutic gains over the course of treatment, and concluding with the nettlesome issue of therapist-patient contact after termination, Herbert J. Schlesinger speaks of matters that transcend theoretical allegiance and technical orientation. He speaks, that is, to any and all clinicians whose commitment to their work emboldens them to begin anew - and end anew - with each patient, each day."--Jacket
The texture of treatment : on the matter of psychoanalytic technique by Herbert J Schlesinger( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In simple, jargon-free language, Herbert Schlesinger sets out to demystify technique, to show how it is based on basic principles that are applicable both to psychoanalysis and to the psychotherapies that derive from it. He has little need for conventional theory; rather, he reframes essential analytic notions - transference, resistance, interpretation, regression, empathy - as processes and assigns technique the goal of promoting the patient's activity within the treatment situation. The aim of the analytic therapist is to restore to the patient active control of his own life. Util

What sets off the termination of analysis and psychodynamic therapy from the variety of endings that enter into all human relationships? So asks [the author of this book. He] situates termination - which he understands, variously, as a phase of treatment, a treatment process, and a state of mind - within the family of "beginnings" and "endings" that permeate one another throughout the course of therapy. For [the author], therapeutic endings cannot be aligned with the final phase of treatment. Far from it. Ending-phase phenomena are ongoing accompaniments of therapeutic work. They occur whenever patients achieve some portion of their treatment goals; they supervene when therapy stagnates; indeed, they color the beginning of treatment, for endings, as [the author] shows again and again, are often foreshadowed in beginnings. Small wonder that an assessment of the patient's relationship to time and capacity to end therapy are key aspects of diagnostic evaluation, and that, for [him], "The ending of psychotherapy is the most important part of the treatment." By linking beginning and ending phases not to the chronology of treatment but to the patient's experience of it, [he] brings revivifying insight to a host of psychodynamic concepts -- consider his view of the "working through" process as a "minitermination" and his use of "attachment" as an index of termination-related difficulties. Nor does he shy away from a trenchant critique of the instrumental "medical model" of psychiatric and psychotherapeutic training, which militates against the therapeutic exploration of treatment endings. His exemplification of how to begin treatment from the point of view of ending; his sensitive delineation of the mid-treatment "ending" crises characteristic of "vulnerable patients"; his richly woven case vignettes illustrating various "ending" contingencies and permutations -- these topical inquiries are gems of pragmatic clinical wisdom. Surveying endings and terminations over the analyst's life course, examining mourning as an anticipation of ending elicited by therapeutic gains over the course of treatment, and concluding with the nettlesome issue of therapist-patient contact after termination, Schlesinger speaks of matters that transcend theoretical allegiance and technical orientation. He speaks, that is, to any and all clinicians whose commitment to their work emboldens them to begin anew -- and end anew -- with each patient, each day. No less than The Texture of Treatment (TAP, 2003), Endings and Beginnings distills lessons learned over the course of a half century of practicing, teaching, and supervising psychotherapy and psychoanalysis and is a gift to the profession.-Dust jacket
