This remarkable collection charts the professional growth of one psychoanalyst from student to seasoned clinician to provide a guidebook for how psychoanalytic theory is conceptualized, created and tested in the analytic session. Specifically, the book traces the development of t...hinking on the place of women in psychoanalysis and how psychoanalysis has changed how it views and treats women. Using the techniques of qualitative psychoanalytic research, Lucy Holmes presents new theories of female development grounded in drive theory and expands and enriches Freud's phallocentric ideas about women. Validated by over thirty years of clinical experience with female patients, her work demonstrates how these theories affect women in analysis, in group, and in their personal lives. Later papers focus on the process of psychoanalysis itself, using the laboratory of the analytic session to study how talking changes the neurological structure of the brain; to reflect on the concept of cure in psychoanalysis; and finally to tackle the tenacity of the repetition compulsion. Exploring topics across women's lives, such as childbirth, anger, identity, death, humour, leadership, and madness, this unique collection of papers is ideal for practicing clinicians and psychoanalysis theorists.
