  6. Internal Family Systems in Pixar’s Inside Out: Interview with Arthur Mones

    Pixar’s upcoming film, Inside Out, explores the emotional struggles of 11 year old Riley, as she adjusts to her new life in San Francisco when her family moves from the Midwest. With Riley’s emotions—Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Anger, and Fear—as the audience’s guide, you go on a journey through the mind of a child and the pitfalls of adolescence.

    Using the principles outlined in his book, Transforming Troubled Children, Teens, and Their Families, Arthur Mones explains how the film showcases Internal Family Systems theory.

  7. Freud and the Spoken Word

    JUST PUBLISHED There is extensive literature on Freud and language; however, there is very little that looks at Freud’s use of the spoken word. In Freud and the Spoken Word: Speech as a key to the unconscious, Ana-María Rizzuto contends that Freud’s focus on the intrapsychic function and meaning of patients’ words allowed him to use the new psychoanalytic method of talking to gain access to unconscious psychic life.  

  8. A Rumor of Empathy

    NEW  Empathy is an essential component of the psychoanalyst’s ability to listen and treat their patients. It is key to the achievement of therapeutic understanding and change. A Rumor of Empathy explores the psychodynamic resistances to empathy, from the analyst themselves, the patient, from wider culture, and seeks to explore those factors which represent resistance to empathic engagement, and to show how these can be overcome in the psychoanalytic context.  

  9. Sexualities

    NEW   Sexualities: Contemporary Psychoanalytic Perspectives presents a broad selection of contemporary psychoanalytic thinking on sexuality from a wide range of psychoanalytic traditions. Sexuality remains at the heart of much psychoanalytic theory and practice but it is a complex and controversial subject.  

  10. Addiction

    NEW   Addiction: A Behavioral Economic Perspective focuses on the behavioral economics of addiction to explain why someone decides and act against her own well-being. It answers the questions of what accounts for self-defeating behavior patterns and how do we best motivate individuals to act according with their long-term goals.
