Explores psychoanalytic counseling from both a theoretical and clinical perspective. Introductory in nature, it illustrates how the counselor, acting as a scientist/practitioner may use psychoanalytic theory as a template for understanding client interview behavior, for intervening in the flow of that behavior, and as a means of assessing the efficacy of those interventions. The focus is on the importance of the counselor acting as scientist/practitioner in helping the client. Coverage encompasses history and analysis of psychoanalytic ideas and their development, the authors' interpretations of Freud's classic theory, Kohut's theory of the self and their own ideas about the interview process. They present technical considerations, cite research literature, and deal with the psychoanalytic counseling of women, ethics and research.
