Bion Today explores how Bion’s work is used in contemporary settings; how his ideas have been applied at the level of the individual, the group and the organisation; and which phenomena have been made more comprehensible through the lenses of his concepts. The book introduces distinctive psychoanalytic contributions to show the ways in which distinguished analysts have explored and developed the ideas of Wilfred Bion.

Drawing on the contributors’ experience of using Bion’s ideas in clinical work, topics include:

  • an introduction to Bion
  • clarification of the inter-related concepts of countertransference and enactment
  • concepts integrating group and individual phenomena
  • clinical implications of Bion’s thought
  • Bion’s approach to psychoanalysis.

Bion Today will be a valuable resource for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and all those who are interested in learning more about Bion’s thinking and his work.
