Learning Disabilities and Psychic Conflict: A Psychoanalytic Casebook
International Universities Press, 1999 - Psychology - 504 pages
This book will sensitize analysts to the presence of learning disabilities in cases where they might not consider this possibility. It opens with a discussion of the clinical, theoretical, and technical issues in the analysis of patients with learning disabilities, and goes on to review the literature on the subject. In-depth data from nine psychoanalyses (5 children, 1 adolescent, and 3 adults) follows, providing a wealth of detail on the psychoanalytic process, the nature of transferences and countertransferences, past and present environmental influences, the character of defenses, and the affects and wishes they defended against. Diagnostic psychological test findings are presented in each case.
