These Discrepancies create a kind of deficiency state

These Discrepancies create a kind of deficiency state. On the basis of this concept, Balint assumes the existence of a specific area of the mind in shich all the processes have an exclusively two-person structure consisting of the individual and the individual's primary object. Its dynamic force, originating from the basic fault has the overwhelming aim of 'putting things right'.

Balint traces the origins of the basic fault to the early formative period, during which serious . who died in 1971, was a psychoanalyst of international reputation, whose originality expressed itself both in clinical practice and in teaching.

These Discrepancies create a kind of deficiency state. His involvement with the development of psychoanalytic theory and practice was paralleled by a concern with stimulating understanding of psychodynamic principles among other professional groups, particularly general practitioners.

Michael Balint distinguishes between two types of regression: a nasty "malignant" regression that the Oedipal level neurotic is prone t. .and the "benign" regression of the basic-fault patient.

In this volume, Michael Balint, who over the years made a sustained and brilliant contribution to the theory and technique of psychoanalysis, develops the concept of the . The benign and the Malignant Forms of Regression. Part V. The Regressed Patient and His Analyst.

Good condition, as expected.

Major contribution to the field of psychoanalysis. Should be read by all in the field, and those interested. If you have a practice, this book will add much to it.

Balint's classic collection of essays, "The Basic Fault," is no how-to guide for aspiring psychotherapists seeking help in managing severely regressed patients. Instead, this thought-provoking collection takes us through the historical unfolding of the complex notion of regression in psychoanalysis, focusing at length on the disagreement between Freud and Ferenczi. Balint describes a crucial distinction between "benign" and "malignant" regression (still a controversial idea in the psychoanalytic community in the 1970s) and describes how an analyst might work productively with "benign" regression in therapy. Reading this book made me appreciate anew the painstaking work of British "independent school" analysts like Balint, who owed allegiance to neither Kleinian nor Freudian schools, and therefore were able to ask questions not recognized by either. I recommend this book highly for any therapist who wishes to deepen her understanding of the notion of regression.

Did you have a rotten childhood? Well, get over it! In The Basic Fault, Michael Balint argues that the adult, Freudian, Oedipal language of the analyst may be completely indecipherable to patients who are frozen at a pre-Oedipal, preverbal level where relationships are only dyadic, language is only nascent, and where some fundamental missattunement between the infant and the environment (e.g. mother) results in the basic fault. Instead, analysts might do well to focus on object relationships, not interpretations, when working with these regressed patients. The analyst waits for the patient's reflections to evolve from "resentment" to "regret", and allows the patient to have a new relationship with a new object. Don't miss Balint's treatment of a patient who performed a somersault right in the consulting room!

I can renew this theory, Balint has no Oedipus complex in his theory. This book finds no term of Oedipus complex. His regression theory divides regression into malignant regression and benign regression. This regression theory is famous in British independent school.
