CHAPTER FOUR: Klein, Bion, projective identification, and the paranoid-schizoid position

Slice ePub May 22, 2014


As James Grotstein writes, “questions about the concept of projective identification still persist” (2005, p. 1051). This chapter offers a reframing of the concepts of projective identification and the paranoid-schizoid position. It challenges Klein's classical framing of these phenomena yet is largely, though not wholly, consonant with Bion's later model. Klein's original formulation was in terms of projective identification being the prototype of an aggressive object relationship, and was set firmly within the context and understanding of the paranoid-schizoid position. Bion's developments distinguished normal from excessive projective identification, understanding the former as a mode of communication. Bion developed therefrom the notion of containment, the container-contained, and a theory of thinking. Meltzer took the notion of the container-contained and further described the concept of the claustrum, while Steiner elaborated the notion of psychic retreats. While these later developments have made substantial reference to Bion's frame, they remain superimposed on Klein's classical frame, often without directly addressing the underlying structure. The identity-affect model developed herein offers an alternate framework that, in this chapter, is elaborated in respect to projective identification and the paranoid-schizoid position.

5 Fine Art Printers in Practical Use

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

When everything works correctly, printing with today’s fine art printers can be a pleasure. Unfortunately, many things can go wrong and spoil the fun, which implies that you need to know when to use or not use certain features of your printer and the various set-ups for proper color management. Knowing the basics gives you the freedom to experiment.

In this chapter we will give a general overview on how to do your printer setup, and your print settings in your application (Photoshop and Lightroom) and in the printer driver. We will show this with an Epson printer with Mac OS X and with Windows. While the basic scheme is the same for most fine art printers, some details will change from manufacturer to manufacturer, from printer model to model, and even change from driver version to driver version.

We off-loaded details on the various fine art printers from Epson, Hewlett Packard, and Canon to appendix A.

The physical installation of a printer is similar, for connecting to a Mac or PC. Unfortunately, the software is usually quite different. Typically, we install a new printer in about 15–30 minutes. With some large-format printers, the ink charging time may take longer. In most cases, printer installation is a very smooth process (HP, Canon, and Epson).

128. Smoking Dependency

Slice ePub January 13, 2014

Anyone who smokes knows how difficult it is to quit for good. They also know how dangerous cigarette smoking is to themselves and to those who breathe in their secondhand smoke. From gum and patches to inhalers and pills, smoking remedies are filling drugstore shelves. While they may work for a select few, the majority of smokers need a better way. Many do not realize that help can come in the form of the nutritional and herbal supplements. With a little willpower and some help from nature, there is a way to quit smoking, once and for all.

CHAPTER TWENTY FOUR: Instances of joy in psychoanalysis: Some reflections

Slice ePub May 23, 2014

Instances of joy in psychoanalysis:
Some reflections

Joseph Canarelli, L.I.C.S.W.

Reading Ken Corbett’s remarkable essay, “More Life” (2006), I was struck by his title, which comes to Corbett from a phrase in Tony Kushner’s play, Angels in America (1955). Over the following days, I found the phrase evoking impressions of Corbett’s essay, thoughts about joy, recent events in my life, memories of the play—a dizzying mix of sources and stories. Through it all, I found myself returning to the words “more life” as if they were demanding something of me. I was feeling my way toward what the phrase might mean, more than grasping it in some easily knowable way.

This talk is being written in the hope of turning some light on one facet of “more life”: the experience of joy in and, we hope, as a result of, psychoanalysis and psychotherapy (terms which, for the purpose of this paper, I shall use interchangeably). I’ll share some thoughts on joy and, in the heart of these reflections, will tell you something about a period of time during which I worked while holding to myself a precious yet troubling secret: the joy of finding myself newly in love. While relational psychoanalytic literature continues to free analysts to write frankly about our lives and work—and the interplay between them—much of this writing is concerned with grim life experiences (for exemplary instances, see Gerson [1996]). Sharing my thoughts with you, I hope to provoke our thinking together about the relationship between the therapist’s private joys and the therapeutic dyad.
