Failures in Psychoanalytic Treatment



“Carefully balanced in terms of the different psychoanalytic schools and with sensitive
appreciation of the subjective dimension of psychoanalytic practice, this unique text explores
failures in psychoanalytic treatment – both objective and subjective . . . .the reader is treated
to a panorama of insightful responses.”
–Gerald J. Gargiulo, PhD
Author, Quantum Psychoanalysis,

This most welcome reissue of a unique now classic collection of essays by a diverse group
of eminent psychoanalysts from the US and internationally incisively addresses the critical
question of the meaning and nature of clinical failures in psychoanalysis, one which has been
generally sadly ignored. These stimulating, open-minded and thoughtful essays explore what
we can learn from such failures to bring progress in psychoanalysis.
