Contemporary Psychoanalytic Field Theory: Stories, Dreams, and Metaphor by S. Montana Katz

Contemporary Psychoanalytic Field Theory articulates the theory, heuristic principles, and clinical techniques of psychoanalytic field theory. S. Montana Katz describes the historical, philosophical and clinical contexts for the development of field theory in South America, North America and Europe.
