10: ON THE PSYCHGPATHOLOGY OF NARCISSISM: A CLINICAL APPROACH

Slice ePub May 26, 2014
<p>FREUD was pessimistic about the psycho-analytic approach to the narcissistic neuroses. He felt that people suffering from these diseases had no capacity for transference, or only insufficient remnants of one. He described the resistance of these patients as a stone wall which cannot be got over, and said that they turn from the physician not in hostility but in indifference. Many analysts have tried to develop methods of analysis which would deal with narcissistic patients-1 am thinking of Waelder (1925), Clark (1933), and later Fromm-Reichmann (1943,1947)5 Bion (1962), Rosenfeld, and others. The majority of analysts who have treated narcissistic patients have disagreed with Freud's view that there was no transference. As the transference is the main vehicle for any analytic investigation, it seems essential for the understanding of narcissism that the behaviour of the narcissist in the analytic transference situation should be minutely observed.</p><p>Franz Cohn (1940) suggested that the sharp distinction between transference neurosis and narcissistic neurosis should be disregarded. He felt that the transference in the narcissistic neurosis is of a primitive or rudimentary type-for example, there are often serious difficulties in distinguishing between subject and object-and he stresses the introjection and projection of destructive tendencies in oral and anal terms in relation to the analyst. Stone (1954) described transferences which are ‘literally narcissistic’, where the analyst is confused with the self or is like the self in all respects: the therapist and the patient alternately seem to be parts of each other. He stresses both the primitive destructiveness and the need to experience the analyst as an omnipotent, godlike figure, and suggests that, in the patient's fantasy about the analyst's omnipotence, guilt about primitive destructive aggression plays an important part.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/226898-psychotic-states-a-psychoanalytic-approach">See more</a>

12. Automation

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p> No Access application exists in isolation. Because Windows is a multitasking operating system, you will often want to be able to link Access with other Windows applications. Windows provides two mechanisms for communicating between applications: Object Linking and Embedding (OLE), which has been renamed ActiveX, and Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE), an older technology that is supported primarily for backward compatibility. ActiveX is easy for users and application programmers to work with and allows for the creation of custom controls. It also accommodates Automation, making it possible for Access to control various applications using VBA.</p><p>This chapter presents examples of using Automation with several Microsoft Office products. You'll also find an example of using DDE to perform a task with the Windows shell. You'll learn to activate an embedded ActiveX object (a sound file), and you'll learn how to control Access itself via Automation. You'll see how to use the statistical, analytical, and financial prowess of the Excel function libraries directly from Access, as well as how to retrieve Word Summary Info for any selected document. Then you'll dig into Automation, creating a form that allows you to alter properties of Microsoft Graph objects on the form. Finally, you'll delve into PowerPoint, which in previous incarnations didn't support Automation, and you'll see an example of automating tasks in Outlook. These examples will show how you can manipulate and create objects in these applications directly from Access.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/364335-access-cookbook-solutions-to-common-user-interface-programming-problems">See more</a>

6. Countertransferential bodily feelings and the containing function of the analyst

Slice ePub May 22, 2014
<p> <i>Athina Alexandris Grigoris Vaslamatzis</i> </p><p>Ah, this terrible pain before prophecy</p><p>Aeschylus, <i>Oresteia</i></p><p> <i>Introduction</i> </p><p>Psychoanalytic psychotherapy to persons exhibiting borderline personality or, broadly speaking, primitive personality—brought to our attention phenomena taking place during treatment, that are beyond the verbal interchange of patient-analyst. Kernberg (1987) describes these channels of communication and considers that during the analytic therapy of borderline patients, “The emergence of dominant unconscious object relations in the transference typically occurs by means of non-verbal communication” (p. 205). Also, McDougall (1980) refers to primitive models of communication by the patient, which indicate that the patient has suffered pre-verbal, severe traumas or deficiencies during the early maternal relationship.</p><p>It is generally accepted that in the treatment of this kind of patients with primitive personalities and/or severe traumas, the understanding and use of countertransference is of special value. In these cases the analyst often faces bizarre and intense phenomena in the primitive transference of the patient. Also, the analyst has to handle his own intense feelings, which these patients usually provoke.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/249692-countertransference-theory-technique-teaching">See more</a>

Day Trips from Kyoto

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p> Nara Click here </p><p> Thirty minutes away from Kyoto by express train, Nara boasts a compact collection of truly first-rate sights. If you’re in Kyoto for more than four days, Nara is a must! </p><p> Osaka Click here </p><p> A short train trip from Kyoto, Osaka is a great place to see modern Japan in all its hyperkinetic intensity. If you aren’t going to Tokyo, consider a trip to Osaka.</p><p> Miyama-chō Click here </p><p> If you want to see rural Japan (thatched-roof cottages etc), hire a car and head to these villages in the mountains north of the city. </p><p> Nara </p><p> Nara is the most rewarding day trip from Kyoto and it’s very easy to reach. Indeed, by taking the Kintetsu limited express <em> (tokkyū) </em> from Kyoto Station to Kintetsu Nara Station, you’re there in about 30 minutes – less time than it might take you to visit some of the more distant parts of Kyoto itself.</p><p> Whether you go by JR or Kintetsu, grab a map at the nearest tourist information centre (there’s one at each station) and walk to Nara-kōen (Nara Park), which contains the thickest concentration of must-see sights in the city, including the awesome Daibutsu (Great Budda) at Tōdai-ji. On the way there, don’t miss Isui-en, a compact stunner of a garden. With a 9am start, you can see the sights and be back in Kyoto in time for dinner. </p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/467791-lonely-planet-kyoto">See more</a>

27. Event Monitor

Source: Arista Warrior
Slice ePub May 29, 2014
<p>The Event Monitor on an Arista switch is a slick little tool that, according to the documentation, writes system event records to local files for access by <em>sqlite</em> database commands. While a technically accurate description, allow me to expand on that a bit.</p><p>Event monitor is a process that records certain common events on the switch. As of EOS version 4.9.3.2, the events recorded include changes to the MAC address table (what MAC is mapped to what port), changes to the IP routing table, and changes to the ARP table (MAC address to IP address mapping).</p><p>Generally, EOS releases are named in the A.B.C format. When I wrote this chapter, the latest revision was 4.9.3.2, which included an urgent patch serious enough to warrant a minor release. The revision was quickly replaced by 4.9.4, but the newer release did not effect any of the chapters where I used 4.9.3.2.</p><p>OK, Ill admit that still sounds boring, but lets dig into this tool and see what it does, and how it might be useful.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/363829-arista-warrior">See more</a>
