Clinical Applications of Psychoanalytic Theory provides in-depth descriptions of past and present analytic concepts, with accompanying examples of how these theories affect clinical interventions. A wide range of psychopathology is described, including child abuse, ADHD, autism, and hostile acts performed by adults as well as by children. Accounts of the treatment process and progress are prefaced by a review of the literature. Each clinical example is accompanied by a psychoanalytic understanding of what transpired in the treatment while the final chapter reviews the currently popular theories of what creates positive change in treatment outcome.
