DOWNLOAD Ø Holding and Interpretation: Fragment of an Analysis Ú DW Winnicott, a psychoanalyst of extraordinary grace and originality, left a body of work distinguished by fierce independence of mind, profound playfulness and technique, and passionate intelligence Holding and Interpretation, a verbatim record of his sessions with a psychotic patient, vividly illustrates his enormous contribution to psychoanalytic theory and technique, his skill at holding the patient in the analytic session and providing guidance through sensitive interpretation It is a rare working portrait of one of the true giants of psychoanalysis a very vast subject, as he said, which has the great charm of being really useful This book seemed unusual to me in that it s a detailed transcript of an analysis It doesn t seem to have a very auspicious beginning at the start it s noted that the patient, who has suffered a psychotic break, tends to fall asleep during sessions and his major symptom is that he s boring But as the book continues I did find it interesting The patient is depressed, de personalized, dissociative and disintegrated, has feelings of unreality and is unable to play, be spontaneous, feel exciteme This book seemed unusual to me in that it s a detailed transcript of an analysis It doesn t seem to have a very auspicious beginning at the start it s noted that the patient, who has suffered a psychotic break, tends to fall asleep during sessions and his major symptom is that he s boring But as the book continues I did find it interesting The patient is depressed, de personalized, dissociative and disintegrated, has feelings of unreality and is unable to play, be spontaneous, feel excitement and emotion etc I won t give away the details but the sleeping is a form of withdrawal and regression, during which Winnicott must hold him, and much turns on his hidden rage, his ambivalence towards rivalry, his father s death, and his hopelessness about being loved for himself By recognizing the patient s need for dependence, Winnicott seems to bring him closer to independence and the capacity for initiative and originality Winnicot has some good ideas for a psychoanalyst, but this record of one patent is tedious and badly out of date If a modern editor could put some of it in perspective, then it might make an interesting historical study But no modern psychotherapist should be basing their practices on the contents of this book. FYI there s a big difference between psychoanalysis and psychotherapy This is not your basic psychotherapy book Only a few specially trained people are doing psychoanalysis now.I found this book tedious and boring But the last 10 pages of Winnicott s discussion of the patient were very interesting.
