Learning Along the Way: fresh insight on psychoanalysis and psychotherapy by Patrick Casement
Published 2018 by Routledge
“This book, my latest and surely my last extensive writing on psychoanalysis, contains the heart and soul of my 50 years of clinical work. I’m just thrilled that it has been so well received – from endorsements to die for and now this totally unexpected honour from “Book Authority”, all of which has arrived out of the blue. I hope it will be of interest, and useful, for anyone associated with WPF Therapy.” Patrick Casement
This is the most important collection of essays to appear in many years. This is one of those rare books that is not only a delight to read, but that offers a priceless education in the art of analytic psychotherapy.
Ted Jacobs MD.
A compelling and beautiful feast from an outstanding pioneer of today’s relational approaches to psychotherapy and analysis. In his decades of clinical writing, Patrick Casement has transformed the field to an extent that very few can equal.
Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex.
Casement remains one of the foremost proponents of contemporary psychoanalytic technique, and is unsurpassed in the lucidity and ease of reading in which he develops a psychoanalytic understanding of people and its practical therapeutic application. Seasoned clinicians will be refreshed, and learners will derive much benefit, from careful study of this text. This book is warmly recommended for student and experienced psychotherapists and psychoanalysts of all theoretical orientations.
Paul Steinberg, MD.
