Contemporary Kleinian Psychoanalysis

This anthology is the first systematic presentation of Kleinian psychoanalysis to the Bulgarian reader. Its content will be of interest to all who are interested in contemporary views of the unconscious, internal objects, the Oedipus complex, projective identification, transference and countertransference. The authors are divided into two groups - the first are world-renowned British experts, and the second are analysts from Europe who integrate Kleinian ideas into clinical practice and the culture of their countries. At the end of the book, you will find a dictionary of the key terms.

This is a valuable collection of papers that reflect the collaboration between Kleinian psychoanalysts in Britain and Europe, on the one hand, and their Bulgarian colleagues on the other, which has developed over many years. Svetlozar Vassilev’s paper exemplifies the way in which this group of analysts in Bulgaria has been able to incorporate Kleinian ideas into their own thinking and work in a constructive and creative fashion.

Dr. Michael Feldman, Chairman, Melanie Klein Trust, London

Dr. Vassilev has brought together a collection of papers originally given as public lectures in Sofia to introduce Kleinian and post-Kleinian ideas to a wider audience. It is particularly relevant that the work of Patricia Daniel, Betty Joseph and Edith Hargreaves are cited in the book as they had steadfastly supported the clinical development of the Bulgarian group. All of the papers in the collection are examples of how Kleinian and post-Kleinian theory are used in the consulting room and all are clinically relevant.

Eileen McGinley, Training and Supervising Analyst with the British Psychoanalytical Society
