Anne Patterson, Editor of the New Library of Psychoanalysis, will introduce Jan Abram’s new book - The Surviving Object: clinical psychoanalytic essays on psychic survival-of-the-object.  

The panellists will be: Vic Sedlak, President of the British Psychoanalytical Society, Maia Kirchkheli, Member of the BPaS and Heribert Blass, Training Analyst of the German Psychoanalytical Association and President of the European Psychoanalytical Federation. They will be in dialogue with the author.  

The Surviving Object is a collection of clinical essays inspired by Winnicott’s clinical paradigm. The book traces how Abram evolved her proposals out of the transference-countertransference matrix of the analysing situation.  

From the endorsements:

…This book is both an extremely useful survey of Winnicott’s thought and a creative elaboration of it. Michael Parsons, author of Living Psychoanalysis: From Theory to Experience

By offering the reader an Ariadne thread through her clinical innovations…she takes the reader on a journey of the complexity of Winnicott’s work…Sølvi Kristiansen, Training and Supervising Anayst, Past President, The Norwegian Psychoanalytic Society
