Terry A. Kupers M.D. Revisioning Men's Lives: Gender, Intimacy, and Power

The challenge that confronts men is to find ways to be powerful without oppressing anyone, and in the process to redefine power, heroism, and masculinity  This is an immense challenge. And men will never meet it in isolation.  We need new kinds of bonds among men and between men and women, straight and gay, if we are to construct, collectively, new forms of masculinity and new and better gender relations.

C. Fred Alford Narcissism: Socrates, the Frankfurt School, and Psychoanalytic Theory

Alford applies the psychoanalytic theory of narcissism to the philosophies of Socrates and Frankfurt School members Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, and Jurgen Habermas, contending that it can illuminate basic philosophical issues such as the nature of the ideal society, the integrity of the self, and the role of reason in human affairs.

Judith M. Hughes From Freud's Consulting Room

Hughes charts the development of Freud's ideas through his clinical work, the successes and failures of his most dramatic and significant case histories, and the creation of a discipline recognizably distinct from its neighbors. Hughes also traces the evolution of Freud's conception of the analytic situation and of the centrality of transference, again through the clinical material, including the case of Freud himself, who at one point figured as his own chief patient.    "A tour de force - original, incisive, and a pleasure to read."  Paul Robinson<

Edward Shorter From the Mind Into the Body

When we fall ill with psychosomatic pain, our symptoms most often - and quite unconsciously - reflect our particular ethnic group, age, class or gender. Shorter reveals for the first time just how stress, popular notions, and social forces together construct many of our symptoms and create much of our pain.

Jeffrey Berman Ph.D. The Talking Cure: Literary Representations of Psychoanalysis

Berman examines a distinguished group of authors with disparate attitudes towards psychoanalysis: early 20th-century feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman, F.Scott Fitzgerald, T.S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath, Joanne Greenberg (Hannah Green), Doris Lessing, Vladimir Nabokov, Philip Roth, and D.M. Thomas. He explores various issues but tends to return to the relationship between the creative process and the therapeutic process: how artists can heal themselves and others by turning their sufferings into art.

Jeffrey Berman Ph.D. Narcissism and the Novel

"... Berman has tackled one of the most elusive, yet central concepts of psychoanalytic theory and has managed to integrate and clarify the many confusing and contradictory writings on the subject. Marvelously incisive and inventive, the book will delight the lay reader and yet meet all scholarly standards of psychology and lterature. ... It is instructive, entertaining, provocative, clever, witty, empathic, judgmental, and highly original. It is a work of art, a scholarly tour de force and truly a generous gift to the reader." – Sophie Freud

Terry A. Kupers M.D. Public Therapy: The Practice of Psychotherapy in the Public Mental Health Clinic

Many low-income clients - including those who have been labeled "chronic" or have long been treated solely with tranquilizers - benefit tremendously from dynamic psychotherapy. He does not, however, minimize the daily obstacles that face therapists who practice in a public setting.  Indeed, one of his primary concerns is to introduce a wide readership to the hard realities of the public clinic and, through case histories, to the plight of low-income clients.

Matthew McKay Ph.D. & Kim Paleg Ph.D. Focal Group Psychotherapy

Each chapter describes the group process as it relates to a particular focal problem, providing concise, step-by-step directions for starting, structuring, and leading such a group. Focal groups tend to: have a high degree of structure, have a specific and limited target issue, be strongly goal-oriented, place a high value on efficiency (homework and structured exercises designed to promote rapid change), have a high educational function, and discourage attention to transference issues.

John C. Norcross Ph.D. Casebook of Eclectic Psychotherapy

Eclecticism is the practice of selecting what seems best from various systems. The intent of these cases is to take the reader into the therapy session - to show what actually transpires, what the therapist is thinking, and how the patient is responding. The goal is to learn how interventions are matched to patients and problems, to relate process to outcome, and to discover the breadth of treatment procedures.
