Psychic Equilibrium and Psychic Change: Selected Papers of Betty Joseph

Joseph, B. Feldman M, and Spillius E. Bott (eds.) 1989. New Library of Psychoanalysis, Routledge.

This collection of Betty Joseph’s most important papers examines the development of her thought and shows how her theory and practice is concerned with the detailed, sensitive scrutiny of the therapeutic process itself. Fundamental and controversial topics explored and discussed include projective identification, transference and countertransference, unconscious phantasy, and Kleinian views on envy and the death instinct.
