Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1988
This book aims, as the title implies, to blaze a new path for researchers of dynamic psychotherapy. It raises fundamental questions about the relationship between psychotherapy and psychopathology which are indicative of the subtle shift that has occurred in the field. No longer just an applied science, dynamic psychotherapy is evolving toward a basic science in its own right. The book is divided into two parts: the first discusses the objective analysis of psychodynamic structures, and the second shows the evolution of single case study methods. The strategies outlined here point the way toward exciting future developments.
