Bion and Intuition in the Clinical Setting (Paperback)
Bion and Intuition in the Clinical Setting focuses on Bion's investigation of the intuitive approach to clinical data and lays out how Bion's method encouraged constant effort by the analysts to relinquish its reliance on sensory and conceptual-verbal faculties to make room for intuition.
Based on the work of the biannual Bion conference, this book includes contributions from the most eminent voices on Bion's work. Spanning topics such as the primordial mind, intuitive comprehension and desire, the contributors in this volume illustrate how they incorporate the concept of intuition in their own clinical developments. Each chapter examines different elements of how Bion's research approaches the difficulties faced by analysts in the approach and discrimination of primitive emotional levels in the patient-analyst communication.
This book will be of key interest to analysts and analytic therapists of all schools and is an essential resource for those that follow the work of Bion.
