Description


Psychoanalytic Conversations: From the Psychotherapeutic Hospital to the Couch offers fresh and engaging perspectives in psychoanalytic treatment and psychotherapy. Kayatekin draws on cases from his experiences both in hospital and office settings to examine how analysts and therapists can best foster honest and healthy communication in a variety of settings. Within the constructed atmosphere of a hospital, in particular, the support of nurses, medical consultants, and other therapeutic groups of staff and patients is crucial in helping patients understand and develop their mental health. Through the use of vivid case examples interwoven with a compelling and compassionate narrative, Psychoanalytic Conversations: From the Psychotherapeutic Hospital to the Couch offers new insights into developing self-understanding and mutual responsibility between patient, therapist, and other staff.
