Reconsidering the Moveable Frame in Psychoanalysis

Reconsidering the Moveable Frame in Psychoanalysis explores the idea of ‘the frame’ at a time when this concept is undergoing both systematic revival and widespread transformation. It has always been tempting to see the frame as a relatively static, finite and definable feature of psychoanalytic work. At its most basic, the frame establishes agreed upon conditions of undertaking psychoanalytic work. But as this book shows, the frame has taken on a protean quality. It is sometimes a source of stability and sometimes a site of ethical regulation or discipline. It can be a place of imaginative mobility, and in certain analytic hands, a device for psychic work on projections and disavowals.

Beginning with a seminal essay on the frame by José Bleger, this book includes commentary on that work and proceeds to explorations of the frame across different psychoanalytic theories. The frame is perhaps one of the spots in psychoanalysis where psyche and world come into contact, a place where the psychoanalytic project is both protected and challenged. Inevitably, extra-transferential forces intrude onto the psychoanalytic frame, rendering it flexible and fluid. Psychoanalysts and analysands, supervisors and candidates are relying increasingly on virtual communication, a development that has effected significant revisions of the classical psychoanalytic frame. This book presents a dialogue among distinct and different voices. It re-examines the state and status of the frame, searching for its limits and sifting through its unexpected contents whilst expanding upon the meaning, purview and state of the frame.

Reconsidering the Moveable Frame in Psychoanalysis will appeal to all psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists interested in how best to understand the frame and to use it most effectively in their clinical practice.

Review
“This absorbing new volume is a compelling journey through the brave new world of psychoanalysis as it is practiced in the 21st century. Co-editors Isaac Tylim and Adrienne Harris have chosen to begin their excursion with the classic work of Bleger on the analytic frame. From there the contributors span the globe, both in the geographical and the theoretical sense, bringing to bear diverse views of where we stand today in considering the structure of the psychoanalytic dialogue. What makes it work? What impinges on our work? The influence of cyberspace is extensively considered, reminding us that the world around us has changed, and the analytic process can no longer remain insulated from these changes. I heartily recommend this superb new collection of essays as a brilliant and provocative contribution to our understanding of the fundamental components of the analytic situation.”-Glen O. Gabbard, MD, former Joint Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Psychoanalysis.

Motion and Emotion: The Neuropsychiatry of Movement Disorders and Epilepsy

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Motion and Emotion: The Neuropsychiatry of Movement Disorders and Epilepsy
Jul 192018
 

This book illustrates the clinical interface between neurology and psychiatry by focusing on neuropsychiatric conditions characterised by alterations at the level of both motor function and behaviour. The neuropsychiatric approach to movement disorders and epilepsy is of key importance in clinically assessing and treating these common and often disabling conditions. While addressing the clinical challenges posed by the behavioural aspects of movement disorders and epilepsy, it invites readers on a journey through the evolving discipline of neuropsychiatry / behavioural neurology – both in the past and today. This discipline has an illustrious history, and continues its ascending trajectory in the new millennium through the activity of long-established national organisations (British Neuropsychiatry Association, BNPA, and American Neuropsychiatric Association, ANPA) as well as newly developed strategic research initiatives (Michael Trimble Neuropsychiatry Research Group, MTNRG).

Trauma and Madness in Mental Health Services

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Trauma and Madness in Mental Health Services
Jul 082018
 

How do survivors of child abuse, bullying, chronic oppression and discrimination, and other developmental traumas adapt to such unimaginable situations? It is taken for granted that experiences such as hearing voices, altered states of consciousness, dissociative states, lack of trust, and intense emotions are inherently problematic. But what does the evidence actually show? And how much do we still need to learn?

Recovery, Mental Health and Inequality: Chinese Ethnic Minorities as Mental Health Service Users

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Recovery, Mental Health and Inequality: Chinese Ethnic Minorities as Mental Health Service Users
Jul 082018
 

Mental health has long been perceived as a taboo subject in the UK, so much so that mental health services have been marginalised within health and social care. There is even more serious neglect of the specific issues faced by different ethnic minorities.

This book uses the rich narratives of the recovery journeys of Chinese mental health service users in the UK – a perceived ‘hard-to-reach group’ and largely invisible in mental health literature – to illustrate the myriad ways that social inequalities such as class, ethnicity and gender contribute to service users’ distress and mental ill-health, as well as shape their subsequent recovery journeys.

Recovery, Mental Health and Inequality contributes to the debate about the implementation of ‘recovery approach’ in mental health services and demonstrates the importance of tackling structural inequalities in facilitating meaningful recovery. This timely book would benefit practitioners and students in various fields, such as nurses, social workers and mental health postgraduate trainees.
