Author: Salman Akhtar,Evelyne Schwaber,Sydney Pulver
Publisher: Jason Aronson Inc. Publishers
Category: Clinical Psychology, Psychotherapy
Book Format: Paperback

This volume addresses the critical psychoanalytic issue of effective listening. While this issue has been discussed widely in the literature, most often the discussions are from the standpoint of technique. Listening to Others is among the first texts to consider the listening process from the so-called 'two-person' perspective-i.e., that which is aligned with intersubjective, interpersonal, and relational theories. The contributors to this volume all are well-known experts in contemporary psychoanalytic theory.
