From its inception psychoanalysis has sought to effect a cure through the therapeutic relationship between analyst and analysand. Betweenity looks at what happens when the established framework of the psychoanalytic process is challenged by those with borderline personalities.
In this book Judy Gammelgaard looks at how we might understand the analysand who is unable to engage with therapy and how we might bring them to a point where they are able to do so.
Areas of discussion include:
the border between psychiatry and psychoanalysis
early mother-child relationships
the splitting of the ego.
This book will be essential reading for all psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and practitioners wishing to learn more about working with borderline personality structures and disorders.
