Winner of the 2013 Sigourney Award!

Psychoanalysis seen through Bion's eyes is a radical departure from all conceptualizations which preceded him. In this major contribution to the series Makers of Modern Psychotherapy, Joan and Neville Symington concentrate on understanding Bion's concepts in relation to clinical practice, but their book is also accessible to the educated reader who wishes to understand the main contours of Bion's thinking. Rather than following the chronological development of Bion's ideas, each chapter looks in depth at an important theme in his thinking and describes how this contributes to his revolutionary model of the mind.


Reviews

'An impressively clear and thoughtful description of Bion's clinical thinking … I think that the clinician will find much that is helpful here; very important concepts such as the emotional links, K, L and H and their negative aspects are given clarity by clinical examples … I recommend this book very strongly.' - Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

'This book takes the reader through Bion's mature thinking, linking it to his Grid…the Grid is an extraordinarily original and useful idea. Bion developed it as a way to understand the development and transformation of thought, both within and between the two individuals engaged in the therapeutic relationship…This book is strongly recommended to counsellors who feel they rely too much on theory, but especially to counsellors unaware of how much they place their theory between themselves and their clients.' - Counselling
