A Volume (9) in the series The New Library of Psychoanalysis Published in Association with the Institute of Psycho-Analysis, London

This collection of Betty Joseph's most important papers examines the development of her thought and shows why a crucial part of her theory and practice is concerned with the detailed, sensitive scrutiny of the therapeutic papers itself. In these papers, Betty Joseph explores fundamental and controversial topics, including projective identification, transference and countertransference, unconscious fantasy, envy, and the death instinct.
