Seeing and Being Seen: Emerging from a Psychic Retreat examines the themes that surface when considering clinical situations where patients feel stuck and where a failure to develop impedes the progress of analysis. This book analyses the anxieties and challenges confronted by patients as they begin to emerge from the protection of psychic retreats. Divided into three parts, areas of discussion include: embarrassment, shame and humiliation helplessness, power and dominance mourning, melancholia and the repetition compulsion. As well as offering fresh ideas, Steiner bases his creative and integrative efforts on previous contributions by psychoanalysts including Freud, Klein, Rosenfeld and Bion. As such, this book will be of interest to psychoanalysts, clinical psychotherapists and all those with an interest in the psychoanalytic field.
