This volume presents cutting-edge advances in case conceptualization and intervention for children and adolescents, who typically present for mental health treatment with multiple, overlapping problems. Leading clinician-researchers examine common processes–including stress and coping, attention and interpretation biases, avoidant behaviors, and peer and family interactions–that underlie the development and maintenance of diverse forms of psychopathology. They describe exemplary treatments that target these processes and can be used across diagnostic categories. Chapters on specific treatment protocols address the theoretical foundations, clinical strategies used, which patient populations each treatment is suitable for, and the status of the empirical evidence base.

?C.B. Robertson, “In Defense of Hatred”

In this book, Robertson defends the morality of the emotion called “hatred,” which has been defined as an evil motivation and emotion over the last century. In Defense of Hatred argues that hatred is intrinsically and inextricably bound up with love, and that the eradication of one eventually means the erasure of the other. After defining and defending the emotion, Robertson advances a theory of “just hatred,” which attempts to alleviate some of the dangers that people have rightly identified in the emotion. In this way, this book defends passion and love from the nihilistic attack on hatred. An attack which is – almost without exception – launched in a cynical, hypocritical, and vicious manner, by those who have no intention of abandoning their own hatred.

The Organizational Life of Psychoanalysis is a wide-ranging exploration and examination of the organizational conflicts and dilemmas that have troubled psychoanalysis since its inception. Kenneth Eisold provides a unique, detailed, and closely reasoned account of the systems needed to carry out the tasks of training, quality control, community building, and relationships with the larger professional community. He explores how the freedom to innovate and explore can be sustained in a context where the culture has insisted on certain standards being set and enforced, standards that have little to do with providing effective pathways to cure.
Each chapter in this collection addresses a specific dilemma faced by the profession, including:
Who is to be in charge of training and who will determine those who succeed the existing leadership?
Which theories and practices are to be approved and which proscribed and censored?
How is the competition with alternative methods, including psychotherapy informed by psychoanalysis, to be managed?
Several chapters are devoted to exploring the reciprocal influence of Freudian psychoanalysis and Jungian Analytical Psychology. Others explore the specific dilemmas and difficulties affecting the field currently, stemming from the massive restructuring of the health care industry and the changes affecting all professions, as they are reshaped into massive organizations no longer marked by personal relationships and individual control.
The Organizational Life of Psychoanalysis will be essential reading for psychoanalysts, psychoanalytic psychotherapists, and anyone interested in the future of psychoanalysis as a profession. It will appeal greatly to anyone who has assumed full or partial responsibility for the management of a psychoanalytic institute or association.

In recent years there has been a surge in awareness of the many arenas in which violence against women occurs. There is a growing attention to human and sex trafficking and femicide throughout the world. Female genital mutilation along with childhood marriage and rape occur regularly in many societies. Sexual victimization of women in custody is now exposed. College campus violence against women has been a serious problem and only recently acknowledged.
In this edited book psychoanalysts show how violence can be seen, known and represented on the world stage and in psychoanalytic treatment. The editors bring psychoanalytic ideas and understanding in an effort to comprehend violence against women. Observing the active witnessing of the contributors to this book elucidates the way trauma is transformed into resilience and healing. Scholars and psychoanalysts from Argentina, Mexico, Peru, the United Kingdom and the United States together address this serious problem along with the consideration of depictions of violence against women in film, art, drama and poetry. With courage, multiple modalities of intervention become possible. Additionally, psychoanalysts develop psychoanalytic commentary of the presentations, bringing the psychoanalytic mind to the larger arena of the many courageous efforts at fighting violence against women.
