Dramatic Dialogue: Contemporary Clinical Practice by Galit Atlas and Lewis Aron

I recently attended the Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis (TICP) conference featuring Lewis Aron and Galit Atlas: “Love & Hate in Contemporary Clinical Practice”. It was just by happenstance that I attended because originally I had signed up for Mark Solms: “The Conscious Id: An Introduction to Neuropsychoanalysis” last February but fell ill and couldn’t attend. This is relevant because of two things: 1. Even though this wasn’t my first choice, it was my first clinical conference as a registered psychotherapist (not a bookseller!) 2. This conference was one of the best conferences I have ever attended! (And as a bookseller at Caversham since 1999, I have had the great fortune to have slipped into many, many conferences, as a fly on the wall.)
Galit and Lew (as they call him) are on to something big here. It is not just that I have championed Ferenczi in my early years in my training at the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy, and this presentation and Dramatic Dialogue (their new book) is a nod to him, but it is how Galit and Lew present their ideas. Articulate: check. Filled with feeling: check. Meaningful: check. Relevant: check. Innovative: check. Practical: check.
Although, I have only cracked the cover, all of their lovely attributes are also alive on the page! All of my ‘self-states’ seem to agree that this book will be integral to mine and my clients’ work.
