Summary
  • This volume, in presenting a collection of observations and experiments with the psychotherapy of psychotics, is a vivid demonstration of the prodigious soaring of the modern analytic movement. This predominance of human over mechanical conceptions of madness is a deep source of rejoicing. It testifies to the supremacy of the spirit and of love in this modern world where it sometimes seems the robot with a heart of steel is becoming the master of the universe. It is the most dehumanized of beings who, being alienated from others and from himself and so most estranged from the human condition, has made us recover a new humanism
  • This volume is a way of bringing to our audience current dynamic conceptions of the psychoses and their psychotherapy. Probably nowhere in the field of psychotherapy do our conceptions change so radically with the experience of few cases as they do in the treatment of the psychoses. It thus seemed timely to collate and summarize the current status of the psychotherapeutic work with psychotics. In this volume I attempted to sample the wide theoretical points of view extant in such psychotherapy--and so we have the influence of Freud, Jung, Rogers, Adler, Binswanger, Fromm-Reichmann, and others represented in the case presentations. Each provides its own justification and integrity and offers a balance and challenge for the reader. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
