The Relational Revolution in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy provides a comprehensive overview of relational psychotherapy in one concise volume.

The author investigates clinical theory and technique as well as the challenges of conducting psychotherapy during the extraordinary twinned circumstances of a global pandemic and an equally widespread societal awakening to the consequences of systemic racism. Grasping this unique opportunity to explore the implications of therapists and patients simultaneously experiencing the same life events and crises, Steven Kuchuck examines the impact of the therapist’s subjectivity on the patient and other hallmarks of relational psychoanalysis such as enactments, co-construction, self-disclosure and multiplicity, and relational perspectives on race, gender, and sexuality. Thoroughly referenced to facilitate further research and illustrated with clinical examples throughout, this succinct introduction will be of interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, academics and students alike.
