Theatres of the Mind

McDougall, Joyce


IBSN: 9780946960651 Category:


Using the idiom of drama, Joyce McDougall here describes how we play out compulsive scripts in our lives, inner worlds, symptoms and in the therapeutic transference.  Starting from the theorectial fram developed in her earlier book, McDougall now presents a comprehensive view of the five fundamental types of psychopathology: neuroses; severe character disorders and addictive personalities; perversions; psychoses; and the psychosomatic disorders.  Her primary interest is in achieving an understanding in depth of her patients’ psychopathology as represented by what she calls “theatres of the mind.”
