Here is a new feature of my blog…book recommendations. I wanted to start with one of my favorite analytic books of all time. It is a great read for clinicians and non-clinicians alike, offering an analytic eye to topics not typically considered in the office or outside it.
It does not cover specific theories, but instead offers stand alone essays that apply psychoanalytic thought to somewhat random issues. It additionally gives a peek into the analytic mind of one of the great clinicians of our time.
“On Kissing, Tickiling and Being Bored: Psychoanalytic Essays on the Unexamined Life” by Adam Phillips.
