Excerpt

O, let my books be then the eloquence And dumb presagers of my speaking breast;

O, learn to read what silent love hath writ: To hear with eyes belongs to love's fine wit.

[ Shakespeare, Sonnet 23 ]

I n this book I have tried to present the results of many years of experience as an analyst working with deeply disturbed or psychotic patients, as well as some conceptualizations of both clinical and theoretical aspects that allow for a more fruitful approach, not only to these patients but also to less disturbed ones. The clinical material is not presented merely as a number of vignettes; rather, it attempts to show the continuous dialogue between patient and analyst, a point I elaborate on in this book.

Part one deals with the theory and clinical treatment of the psychotic aspects of the personality. Beginning with a review of the literature, it describes my technical approach to psychotic patients and includes rich clinical material.
