Reflections on Long-Term Relational Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis explores how relational analysts think about and pursue long-term therapeutic relationships in their practices. Most therapists will work intensively with several of their clients over many years, but more examination and exploration are needed into what is taking place inside of these mutual long-term relationships. Each contributor offers theoretical material, case examples, and some discussion about their views and experiences with long-term work.

The chapters cover a range of topics that focus on aspects of the therapeutic relationship that are unique to long-term psychoanalytic work. They include work with various issues such as trauma, death and dying, cross-cultural issues, suffering, mourning, neuropsychoanalysis, unique endings, attachment, intimacy, and the many ways in which therapists change along with their clients as they go through life stages together.

Reflections on Long-Term Relational Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis will be of great interest to psychoanalysts, psychodynamic psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, workers in other mental health fields, graduate students, and anyone who is interested in change processes.
