Psychoanalysis is often referred to a talking cure, but in this fascinating book it is the art of writing that is discussed and explored.

Including contributions from a selection of leading therapists, the book shines a psychoanalytic light on the very process through which the discipline is described. It includes chapters on the idea of creativity, the issues around a therapist’s subjectivity, the challenges of describing trauma, as well as those of co-authorship.

Psychodynamics of Writing will appeal to clinicians, therapists and anyone interested in what the process of writing means.
