WPF Therapy Book of the Month – March 2019

WPF Therapy Book of the Month – March 2019

This illuminating book, Dissecting the Superego: Moralities Under the Psychoanalytic Microscope edited by Celia Harding, offers a comprehensive overview of how the superego, the workings of our moral faculties, may be understood and clinically utilised in contemporary practice.

Drawing on the latest psychoanalytic thinking – as well as neurobiological, psychological and ethical perspectives– this book reinstates the superego as a central concept, and gives a clear guide to its importance in the modern world. In addition to the theoretical background of this construct, the contributors provide a clear guide to the importance of the superego in a range of pathological and everyday scenarios, and particularly in clinical settings.

With an emphasis on the wider social and cultural context, Dissecting the Superego: Moralities Under the Psychoanalytic Microscope will be of interest to trainee and qualified psychotherapists, social workers, youth offender and probation workers and ethicists.
