A Volume (32) in the series The New Library of Psychoanalysis Published in Association with the Institute of Psycho-Analysis, London

This collection of papers, written over the last six years by Robert Caper, focuses on the importance of psychological development of distinguishing self from object, and the central role that this difficult psychological disentanglement plays in the therapeutic effect of psychoanalysis. In doing so, the author explains what differentiates the practice of psychoanalysis from psychotherapy; while psychotherapy aims to ease the client towards "good mental health" through careful suggestion and manipulation of the client's character, psychoanalysis attempts the more radical task of allowing the client to discover who he/she is and isn't. In particular, it seeks to allow the client to see the internal and external reality, clear of fantasies, with the self wholly distinguished from other people and other objects. --- from the publisher
