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-Elect 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.
