A Clinical Introduction to Lacanian Psychoanalysis: Theory and Technique by Bruce FinkThe goal of my teaching has always been, and remains, to train analysts.
--Jacques Lacan, Seminar XI, 209
Arguably the most profound psychoanalytic thinker since Freud, and deeply influential in many fields, Jacques Lacan often seems opaque to those he most wanted to reach. These are the readers Bruce Fink addresses in this clear and practical account of Lacans highly original approach to therapy. Written by a clinician for clinicians, Finks Introduction is an invaluable guide to Lacanian psychoanalysis, how its done, and how it differs from other forms of therapy. While elucidating many of Lacans theoretical notions, the book does so from the perspective of the practitioner faced with the pressing questions of diagnosis, what therapeutic stance to adopt, how to involve the patient, and how to bring about change.
Fink provides a comprehensive overview of Lacanian analysis, explaining the analysts aims and interventions at each point in the treatment. He uses four case studies to elucidate Lacans unique structural approach to diagnosis. These cases, taking up both theoretical and clinical issues in Lacans views of psychosis, perversion, and neurosis, highlight the very different approaches to treatment that different situations demand.

Written with a clarity and accessibility unusual in Lacanian studies, Professor Fink's book leads the reader step by step through Lacanian analysis, moving progressively toward the more problematic aspects of the theory. For students and practitioners of psychoanalysis, I'd recommend this book as the best I've seen. Leavy, M. Professor Fink presents something that has not yet been seen in America, and rarely approached with such perspicacity anywhere: an introduction to Lacanian psychoanalysis not only as theory, but as clinical methodology and practice. His book will be particularly useful to analysts-in-training and doctoral-level students in psychology and the cognate disciplines. No previous exposure to Lacan's thinking is required.
