About this product
- DescriptionPeople's lives can be dramatically transformed by psychoanalysis. Yet the decision to undertake this enterprise can seem so formidable that many deny themselves an extraordinary experience. This book makes that decision-admittedly a complex one-better informed, clearer, and easier. It provides seven detailed case reports, easy to read and free of technical jargon, in which the patients' lives-in their own judgements-were transformed. This is t meant to imply that psychoanalysis always or even usually yields transformative results. These case studies are intriguing in their own right and help the reader think kwledgeably about psychoanalysis and assess its potential as a life-changing enterprise.
