Why is developing as a psychoanalytic practitioner so often laden with anxiety? A simple answer is that psychoanalytic work is intrinsically complex and difficult. But Laurence Spurling argues traditional accounts of practice make these difficulties even worse for students and practitioners: he shows that case descriptions and examples in psychoanalytic textbooks often give a misleading picture of practice, because they explore what practitioners ought to do rather than what they actually do. The Psychoanalytic Craft uniquely identifies and explores what is missing in these accounts of therapy, namely the 'craft' aspects of skilled psychoanalytic work: how theories and models are actually used in practice, what kind of reasoning is employed in conducting a session, how interventions are composed and evaluated. The book draws on recent research, as well as the wider craft literature to show how these features of clinical thinking, which normally operate below the level of awareness, can be identified and explored in clinical practice, in supervision and in teaching. This book has been written specifically for those students and practitioners moving beyond beginner level towards skilled and resourceful practice.

Supervision is essential for counsellors and psychotherapists, but it can create emotional pressures and practical dilemmas. This book offers a sympathetic introduction to supervision that helps the reader to think through these complex issues. Rooted in the psychodynamic tradition, this book provides the reader with a sophisticated understanding of theory whilst exploring the principles that underpin good practice. The text gives useful insights into the conflicts and possibilities offered by supervision to both supervisor and supervisee. Drawing on case studies taken directly from the author's own experience, the individual chapters consider issues in a variety of settings, from group supervision and supervising in institutions, to working with difference and supervising those with clients in crisis. Thought-provoking and enjoyable to read, this book encourages the reader to reflect on their own practice. It is an ideal text for those beginning to supervise as well as for experienced practitioners looking to refresh their knowledge and skills.

All counsellors are compelled to take account of the diverse society in which they practice and to inform themselves of best practice with all client groups. This book provides a contemporary psychodynamic perspective on difference and diversity to bring practitioners up to date with current thinking when faced with a client who is in some way 'different'. References to race, culture or disability in classical psychoanalytic literature are few. In a society that embraces diversity and seeks to afford equality for all, theories of male and female identity development need revisiting. Older people make up a large proportion of the population and religious beliefs make headline news, but psychodynamic perspectives on clinical work with such groups are limited. Indeed, the social context of the twenty first century, that provides the backdrop for the hopes, fears and aspirations of our clients, warrants attention, as people and organisations are shaped by the social systems that prevail. In the past decade equal opportunities legislation and the need to be proactive in thinking about diversity has begun to make its mark. Complacency is no longer tolerated. This book is essential reading for counsellors and psychotherapists in training and for experienced practitioners whose continuous professional development will be enhanced by re-evaluating how diversity affects their practice.

Originally published as From Counselling Skills to Counsellor and significantly refreshed and revised in its second edition, this text guides readers through how key concepts first originated, how they developed and how they apply in practice today. This updated edition: Discusses the contributions of five key figures in the field: Freud, Klein, Winnicott, Bion and Bowlby Presents compelling case studies throughout which powerfully illustrate psychodynamic theory in practice Explores the legacy of psychodynamic theorists in two new chapters, including feminism and developments in attachment theory Shows how psychodynamic theory can help practitioners in building and understanding the therapeutic relationship An insightful introduction to core psychodynamic theory, this text is invaluable reading for all students, trainees and practitioners in counselling and psychotherapy, and of interest to those studying and working in the fields of nursing, social work and counselling psychology.
