Sandra Buechler, Ph.D., a valued and popular speaker at a number of WMAAPP programs, has a new book out: It is titled Psychoanalytic Approaches to Problems in Living: Addressing Life’s Challenges in Clinical Practice and published by Routledge.
She describes the book:
People often seek treatment for help dealing with one or more of life’s fundamental dilemmas. Should I give in to aging or fight it? Let mourning take its course, or push myself to “move on” to a new relationship? This book applies literature, clinical experience, and analytic theory to the task of addressing these challenges as they make appearances in sessions. The topics include the capacity to be alone, bearing life’s uncertainties and unavoidable suffering, forgiving others, and, given its inherent pain, forgiving life itself.
