About this product
- DescriptionTaking Risks from the Unconscious tells the story of a remarkably successful psychoanalysis from the point of view of both analyst and patient. The analyst, Dr. Marcus, describes the risk he undertook in acquiescing to his patient's desire for an interaction in which their 'true selves' could meet explicitly. By making his interventions directly from his unconscious, Dr. Marcus enabled a new kind of enactment to take place, based on implicit relational kwing. In this book he describes his approach, and his co-author-the patient and also herself a practicing psychoanalyst-presents her own history and her own view of what transpired in the analysis.
