Intensive Psychotherapy for Persistent Dissociative Processes: The Fear of Feeling Real


Product Description

Published USA, 2015
Richard Chefetz blends psychodynamic and affect theory with attachment, neurobiology and trauma-related research in the treatment of severely dissociative patients. Dissociative processes have long burdened trauma survivors with the dilemma of longing to 'feel real' at the same time as they desperately want to avoid the pain that comes with that healing, a dilemma that often presents difficulties for clinicians. The author's style of writing is like that of a novel, particularly in his presentation of case material, as he brings to life the clinical setting and the struggles in both patient and therapist.

Richard Chefetz is a psychiatrist in private practice in Washington DC.
