Description:
Apart from the publication of a few articles written by a small number of psychoanalytic orientated practitioners, it is noteworthy that outside of psychoanalytic journals in Ireland, the most we encounter are fleeting references to the work of Freud, in relation to addiction. It is safe to say that those of us who draw upon the work of Freud in the execution of our clinical work are sadly under-represented in Irish publications on addiction. In fact, this under-representation is clearly visible on training courses as well, the average psychology core text book regularly condenses twenty six volumes of Freud work and over 50 years of clinical work to on average two pages.
