On Kissing, Tickling and Being Bored

“On Kissing, Tickiling and Being Bored: Psychoanalytic Essays on the Unexamined Life” by Adam Phillips.

Here is a new feature of my blog…book recommendations. I wanted to start with one of my favorite analytic books of all time.  It is a great read for clinicians and non-clinicians alike, offering an analytic eye to topics not typically considered in the office or outside it.

It does not cover specific theories, but instead offers stand alone essays that apply psychoanalytic thought to somewhat random issues. It additionally gives a peek into the analytic mind of one of the great clinicians of our time.

Smith is and analytically oriented psychotherapist with 25 years in practice. She is additional the  Founder/Director of Full Living: A Psychotherapy Practice, which specializes in matching clients with seasoned clinicians in the Greater Philadelphia Area.
