The Recovery of the Lost Good Object

Brenman, E. 2006. Karnac.

This collection brings together the hugely influential papers and seminars of Eric Brenman, revealing his impact on the development of psychoanalysis, and illuminating his distinctive voice amongst post-Kleinians. United for the first time in one volume, Brenman’s papers offer a unique insight into the development of his clinical and theoretical thinking. They highlight issues relevant to current debates about psychoanalytic technique, and cover subjects from trauma and borderline pathology, to the psychoanalytical approach to severely deprived patients. This collection is aimed at psychoanalysts and psychotherapists, as well as members of other helping professions interested in the work of Eric Brenman.
