The current diversity in psychoanalytic theories of hysteria has confused our understanding of the concept. Matrix of Hysteria offers a new perspective, which draws on previous theories to present a clear and cohesive view of the theoretical and clinical aspects of hysteria.
Drawing on extensive experience in analytic work, supervision and teaching, Nitza Yarom employs clinical vignettes to offer the reader an illuminating account of this subject. The book is divided into two sections, covering clinical and theoretical issues and including discussion of subjects such as:
*Oedipus, Sexuality and Gender
*An Intrapsychic Perspective on the Matrix
*The Language of the Intersubjective Body
*Hysteria and the Analytic Setting
*Trauma and Hysteria
Psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists in training and practice will welcome this original insight into the subject of hysteria.
