The Clinical Thinking of Wilfred Bion

Symington, J. and N. 1996. Part of the Makers of Modern Psychotherapy series. Routledge.

Psychoanalysis seen through Bion’s eyes is a radical departure from all conceptualizations which preceded him. In this major contribution, Joan and Neville Symington concentrate on understanding Bion’s concepts in relation to clinical practice, but it is also accessible to readers wishing to understand the main contours of Bion’s thinking. Each chapter examines an important theme in his thinking and describes its role in his model of the mind. Winner of the 2013 Sigourney Award.
