Sep 032018
 

On the Daily Work of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is an operating manual for the challenging, often lonely and confusing work of doing therapy. It locates clinical method in a historical tradition of many contributory workers including Freud, Breuer, Klein, Segal, Ferenczi, Waelder, Katan, Tausk, Sullivan, Lacan, Bion, and Ogden. In this way, the book links clinicians with psychoanalytic thinkers across the foreclosures of scholastic orientation and politics, to arrive at a methodology, based in interpretive reflection, and demonstrably active from the period of psychoanalytic origins as an application of the influence of mind upon mind.

The authors provide the reader with a methodology of clinical thinking, of how clinicians orient themselves in clinical registration, moment by moment. It develops a route of fundamental therapeutic action, applicable under all clinical situations, from th

Therapeutic Communication in Mental Health Nursing: Aesthetic and Metaphoric Processes in the Engagement with Challenging Patie

 Nursing, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Therapeutic Communication in Mental Health Nursing: Aesthetic and Metaphoric Processes in the Engagement with Challenging Patie
Aug 312018
 

Awarded first place in the 2017 AJN Book of the Year Awards in Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing. This book introduces an innovative technique for therapeutic communication in mental health nursing, expanding the toolkit for nurses seeking to engage challenging patients who have not responded to more conventional therapeutic methods. Linking nursing communication to current research on metaphor and figuration, it is illustrated with accessible clinical examples. Metaphor is a key component of talk-based psychotherapies. But many of the patients whom nurses encounter in the inpatient setting are not good candidates for talk-based approaches, at least initially, because they are violent, withdrawn, highly regressed, or otherwise lacking a vocabulary to convey thoughts and feelings. This book offers specific clinical examples of an approach called the “gestural bridge.” This is a method for structuring games and physical activities which connect metaphorically to a patient’s personal themes, activating narrative and observational agency and enabling an exchange of meaning to begin at a time when conventional language is not available. Rooted in what nursing theorists have called the “embodied” or “aesthetic” way of knowing, this approach is both specific and easily grasped. Drawing from contemporary work in literary theory, semiotics, metaphor theory, cognitive science, philosophy, linguistics, psychoanalysis, and the arts, Therapeutic Communication in Mental Health Nursing is important reading for advanced-level practitioners, students, and researchers interested in communication and relationship-building in nursing.
