Homosexualities: Psychogenesis, Polymorphism, and Countertransference




http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1782203133/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=1782203133&linkCode=as2&tag=freuquot-21
This latest volume in the Psychoanalysis and Women Series for the Committee on Women and Psychoanalysis of the International Psychoanalytical Association presents and discusses theoretical and clinical work from a number of authors worldwide. It clearly demonstrates that there is no typical development of homosexuality and that each individual’s object-choice can only be grasped by examining their psychic history. While the therapeutic work requires no special adaptation of technique, countertransferential difficulties which may arise and stem in part from cultural representations about gender differences are fully explored. The book includes a unique retrospective view by Ralph Roughton over three time points which charts changes in considering the analyst’s response within the wider cultural context.
