Book Signing: Morris Eagle
March 4, 2018, 12:00 - 2:00 PM
Join us in celebrating the recent publication by Routledge of two related books by Morris Eagle, PhD:
Core concepts in classical psychoanalysis: Clinical, resear
Core concepts in contemporary psychoanalysis: Clinical, research evidence and conceptual critique
Some of the key concepts and issues explored include:
- Are transference interpretations necessary for positive therapeutic outcomes?
- Are the analyst’s countertransference reactions a reliable guide to the patient’s unconscious mental states?
- Is projective identification a coherent concept?
- Psychoanalytic styles of thinking and writing
Written with Dr. Eagle’s piercing clarity of voice, Core Concepts challenges previously unquestioned psychoanalytic assumptions and will appeal to psychoanalysts, psychoanalytic psychotherapists, and anyone interested in integrating core psychoanalytic concepts, research, and theory with other disciplines including psychiatry, psychology, and social work.
