Suicide prevention: The contribution of psychoanalysis

By Stephen Briggs

Abstract

The contemporary relevance of psychoanalysis is being increasingly questioned; Off the Couch challenges this view, demonstrating that psychoanalytic thinking and its applications are both innovative and relevant, in particular to the management and treatment of more disturbed and difficult to engage patient groups. Chapters address:\ud Clinical applications in diverse settings across the age range. \ud The relevance of psychoanalytic thinking to the practice of CBT, psychosomatics and general psychiatry \ud The contribution of psychoanalytic thinking to mental health policy and the politics of conflict and mediation. \ud \ud This book suggests that psychoanalysis has a vital position within the public health sector and discusses how it can be better utilised in the treatment of a range of mental health problems. It also highlights the role of empirical research in providing a robust evidence base.\ud \ud Off the Couch will be essential reading for those practicing in the field of mental health and will also be useful for anyone involved in the development of mental health and public policies. It will ensure that practitioners and supervisors have a clear insight into how psychoanalysis can be applied in general healthcare.\ud \u
