Lectures on Technique by Melanie Klein: Edited with Critical Review by John Steiner

Steiner, J. 2017. Routledge.

This book is based on six lectures given by Melanie Klein in 1936 to students at the British Psychoanalytical Society. They were discovered in the Klein archive and have never before been published. Steiner explores Kleinian technique and how it has evolved, and demonstrates the importance of the lectures in understanding, and making use of, Klein’s work. Featuring previously unpublished material, this book provides a new and significant contribution to understanding the Kleinian paradigm, and is of great value to psychoanalysts and psychotherapists interested in Klein’s work.
