Lets Keep Talking: Lacanian Tales of Love, Sex, and Other Catastrophes is a collection of original Lacanian case studies of young people today as they struggle with their own modern existential dilemmas of sex and love, of life and death. TheMoreLets Keep Talking: Lacanian Tales of Love, Sex, and Other Catastrophes is a collection of original Lacanian case studies of young people today as they struggle with their own modern existential dilemmas of sex and love, of life and death. The context, the background, and the forms of expression are contemporary, but the clients problems, the structures, and the existential dilemmas, are quite classic. The five narrative tales highlight the role a Lacanian orientation played in the interactions, formulations, and results, from initial meetings to terminations. Grounded in concrete clinical material, ultimately, the case studies illuminate specific and universal themes of human suffering and how we can treat that suffering by speaking. Dr. Baldwin argues that our cultural milieu of connective technologies, and the rise of biotechnology and psychopharmacology in particular, we are in need of mental health treatment methods that highlight talking and relationships as essential to our personhood, our suffering, and our healing and growth. Lets Keep Talking argues that now, more than ever, we need the endeavor of analytic talk therapy.
