Erotic Revelations: Clinical Applications and Perverse Scenarios delves into erotic desires and fantasies ... above all, how our sexuality expresses our inner being and defines the ways in which we engage in the psychoanalytic situation. Andrea Celenza addresses the 'desexualization' of the psychoanalytic field by reclaiming sexuality as one of the many nexes that are of central concern to the patient. She illustrates a wide range of erotic manifestations (for both therapist and patient) and offers recommendations to practitioners for dealing with erotic material when it arises.

Andrea Celenza has divided this bookinto two parts, with clinical, theoretical, and technical discussions in each chapter:

Part I: Varieties and Meanings of Erotic Transferences and Countertransferences

Presents the varieties and meanings of erotic transferences and countertransferences common in clinical situations;

Includes case studies of erotic material used as examples of phases in treatment as well as moments of defensive impasse;

Includes discussions of the management of aggression, underlying merger fantasies, uses of countertransferences (in multiple forms), and dilemmas surrounding self-disclosure.

Part II: Perverse Scenarios Revisited

Reconceptualizes and restores the term perversion into the clinical lexicon;

Views perversion as a quality of relating rather than a specific action or behavior;

Presents a wide range of clinical illustrations that demonstrates the usefulness of this reformulation.

Erotic Revelations puts sexuality back into psychoanalytic theorizing and makes a place for erotic transferences of whatever shape, in every analysis or therapy. With a strong clinical focus, this book will redefine how to work with many aspects of sex and gender in clinical psychoanalytic practice and will be an essential resource for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychologists, educators, trainers, students and those with an interest in the mental health field.
