    Frances Tustin Today

    Retail Price: £39.99

    Our Price: £32.99 (with free UK delivery)

    You Save: £7.00 (18%)

    Frances Tustin Today explores some of the ways and means by which Tustin’s work has enabled psychoanalytic clinicians to enter into the elemental domain of sensation: what Bion called the ‘proto-mental’ area of the psyche-soma. Through detailed clinical contributions of several of her exponents worldwide, this book demonstrates how her ideas — rooted in decades of work with children on the autistic spectrum — have influenced and are being expanded, extended and applied to the treatment of ordinary patients from early childhood through adulthood.

    This volume consists of a series of essays inspired by Freud’s paper on Jensen’s novel Gradiva – “she who steps along.” In the story a young archaeologist, Norbert Hanold, suffers from delusions but is able to unravel the mysteries of his emotional life and mind with the aid of a woman who does not challenge these delusions, but rather “steps along” with Hanold, gradually helping him to disentangle truth from fantasy, through what Freud called “cure by love”.

    In these eleven essays, Dr Mitrani masterfully integrates the work of Klein, Winnicott, Bion and Tustin as she leads us on an expedition through primitive emotional territories.
