Contemporary psychodynamic theory and practice.


Contemporary psychodynamic theory and practice.

Borden, William.

Lyceum Books


185 pages




Freud is here. So are Jung, Adler, Winnicott, Kohut, Rank, Ferenczi, Suttie, Melanie Klein, Fairbairn, Bowlby, Harry Stack Sullivan, and Horney. Bordon (psychiatry, U. of Chicago) makes good use of these key thinkers within the psychodynamic tradition, explaining concepts and theories and applying them to clinical perspectives, clinical applications and contexts. With a comparative framework for clinical practice firmly in mind, he includes recent developments for psychotherapy and psychosocial intervention as he identifies psychoanalysis as an evolving field, including material on the emergence of the relational paradigm and relational theory and integrative perspectives in clinical practice. The result is a remarkably compact but accessible treatment of the great thinkers, great ideas, and great applications to real life.
