 Returns of the 'French Freud' : Freud, Lacan, and Beyond
A Clinical Introduction to Lacanian Psychoanalysis:  Theory and TechniqueA Clinical Introduction to Lacanian Psychoanalysis : Theory and Technique by Bruce Fink.

Written by a clinician for clinicians, Bruce Fink's Introduction is an invaluable guide to Lacanian psychoanalysis, how it's done, and how it differs from other forms of therapy. Fink uses four case studies to elucidate Lacan's unique structural approach to diagnosis and treatment.

Written by a clinician for clinicians, Fink's Introduction is an invaluable guide to what really goes on in Lacanian psychoanalysis, how it's done, and how it differs from other forms of therapy. While elucidating many of Lacan's 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, from the first meeting to the termination of therapy, explaining the analyst's aims and interventions at each point in the treatment. He uses four case studies to elucidate Lacan's unique structural approach to diagnosis. These cases, taking up both theoretical and clinical issues in Lacan's views of psychosis, perversion, and neurosis, highlight the very different approaches to treatment that different situations demand.
