The Bi-Personal Field: Experiences in Child Analysis

Synopsis

In The Bi-Personal Field, Antonino Ferro sets out his new conceptual system for analysis, claiming that the basic focus of the analytic relationship is the conscious and unconscious interpersonal processes occurring between the analyst and the patient. Illustrated with numerous detailed clinical examples, the book takes a fresh look at psychoanalytic theory and technique in the light of Kleinian developments, particularly reflecting the drastic changes due to the thinking of Bion.
