The dark side of the analytic moon: a memoir of life in a training institute
International Scholars Publications, Jun 1, 1997 - Biography & Autobiography - 169 pages
The Dark Side of the Analytic Moon transports the reader to the other side of the couch where the dynamics of what it means to be taught how to explore the unconscious minds of strangers while having your own personality systematically scrutinized from all angles are presented with unprecedented candor and clarity. In this new book, Gerald Alper, whose The New England Reviews of Books called portrait of the Artist as a Young Patient _one of the most important modern studies of the psyche of the creative personality that we have,_ and who possesses, according to Dr. Jerome Levin of the Pots-Graduate Center for Mental Health, _one of the more creative analytic minds of his generation,_ brilliantly illuminates the secret life of the therapist.
