BPSI Member Fred Busch, PhD, is set to release his latest work on March 15th; Psychoanalysis at the Crossroads: An International Perspective. Preorders of the book can be made here.

About the Book

In this clear and thoughtful book, an international group of distinguished authors explore the central issues and future directions facing psychoanalytic theory and practice.

The book explores four main questions in the development of psychoanalysis: what psychoanalysis is as an endeavor now and what it may be in the future; the effect of social issues on psychoanalysis and of psychoanalysis on social issues, such as race and gender; the importance of psychoanalytic institutes on shaping future psychoanalytic theory and practice; and the likely major issues that will be shaping psychoanalysis in years to come.

Including contributions from within every school of psychoanalytic thought, this book is essential reading for psychoanalysts, psychoanalytic psychotherapists and all who are curious about the future directions of the profession.
