9780140225426: Phantasy in Everyday life: A Psychoanalytical Approach to Understanding Ourselves (Pelican)

Since the 1940s psychoanalysis has changed dramatically, in part due to the influence of Melanie Klein and her students. Central to that change is Klein's concept of phantasy - the unconscious phantasies that control our assumptions, thoughts, emotions and behaviour. This text shows how understanding the influence of these phantasies can improve the quality of our daily life.

About the Author:

Julia Segal is a Counsellor at the Central Middlesex Hospital, London

Review:

Over the past fifty years dramatic ideas and discoveries have arisen out of the work of analysts. In Phantasy in Everyday Life Julia Segal is mainly concerned with Melanie Klein's contribution to the field and with everyday application of her theories.Central to Julia Segal's theme is Melanie Klein's concept of phantasy - the unconscious fantasies which control our assumptions, our thoughts, our emotions and our behavior. The first half of the book is concerned with daily life; the second more with theoretical issues.Written from her direct experience, Julia Segal's work will prove invaluable both to professionals and to the wider general public.
