This book deals with the nitty-gritty of understanding why countertransference remains an on-going challenge for psychotherapists and psychoanalysts. Over the years the emphasis has moved from theoretical disapproval to potential clinical advantage. This advantage is in practice often hard to achieve, sometimes due to the fear of the closeness in the psychoanalyst as much as in the patient. This thorough and thoughtful book will help students and more seasoned practitioners understand the way differing trends in understanding countertransference connect, relate and sometimes contradict. It aims to provide practical insight into the way countertransference experiences can be grasped, worked through and then worked with to powerful and good effect in the clinical work.

Praise for Clinical Klein by R.D.Hinshelwood

Clinical Klein guides the reader historically through the development of Klein’s thinking and continues with the recent developments in the Kleinian approach. It is particularly appealing not only for Hinshelwood’s effort to organise, clarify and illustrate Kleinian formulations, but also for his bridging comments and critical reflections. This lucid and thought-provoking book should be of significant hep to the psychoanalyst not familiar with recent developments in the Kleinian approach, as well as to all psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapists who wish to familiarise themselves with one of the fundamental approached within contemporary psychoanalytic thinking.
