Contemporary Psychodynamic Theory and Practice

William Borden

  • Introduces comparative framework for clinical practice
  • Identifies psychoanalysis as an evolving field of understanding and practice that enlarges conceptions of self, relationship, social life, and psychosocial intervention
  • Traces historical figures through their careers and prepares practitioners, educators, and students to read original writings with greater facility and deeper appreciation
  • Bridges gap between theory and practice through case reports and clinical illustrations, connecting historical perspectives with pragmatic application in contemporary practice
