ABSTRACT

The World Library of Mental Health celebrates the important contributions to mental health made by leading experts in their individual fields. Each author has compiled a career-long collection of what they consider to be their finest pieces: extracts from books, journals, articles, major theoretical and practical contributions, and salient research findings.

Leading psychoanalyst Joseph D. Lichtenberg is one of the most experienced and best respected psychoanalysts working in the US at present. In A Developmentalist's Approach to Research, Theory, and Therapy, he provides the reader with an opportunity to track the development of his conceptions in three realms of psychoanalysis:

Infant studies and developmentalist perspectives on the life cycle
Theoretical contributions to self-psychology
Motivational clinical contributions
Joseph Lichtenberg is a hugely influential name within US Psychoanalysis circles; this is the first collection of the seminal papers from his very long and distinguished career.
