Dialogues with Schizophrenia
The Art of Psychotherapy
THE THREE LEVEL APPROACH TO PSYCHO-DYNAMICS
AND SOME REFLECTIONS ON COUNTER-TRANSFERENCE AND SUPERVISION
Dr. Springmann is a Psychoanalyst, now in private practice, who held the position of Chief Psychiatrist in the Israeli Defense Force and acted as Director of Mental Health in the Ministry of Health. He was respected as a supervisor of psychotherapy and a senior lecturer of severe psychopathology at Tel Aviv University School of Psychotherapy.
His book, "Dialogues with Schizophrenia - The Art of Psychotherapy", reflects years of work in the field and is partly dedicated to Henry Ezriel, his supervisor at the Tavistock Center in London. Dr. Springmann takes relevent psychiatric theory and numerous case studies to develop a book that is fresh, comprehensive and extremely beneficial to psychology students and professionals.
"Dialogues with Schizophrenia - The Art of Psychotherapy" is the final outcome of his many years of experience. The first part deals with implementation of interpretations in various clinical settings and diagnostic categories. The second part deals with differential implementation of transference, countertransference, with supervision and with the mutual influence of these entities on each other.
