George Atwood - Lectures on Abnormal Psychology

George Atwood is one of the co-founders (with Robert Stolorow and others) of the intersubjective systems theory model of post-Freudian, relational psychoanalysis. He is professor emeritus in Clinical Psychology at Rutgers University.

He also is the author of The Abyss of Madness (2011), one of the best books I have ever read about working with clients who are experiencing psychotic symptoms. You can read the first four chapters for free online.

He is co-author of Psychoanalytic Treatment: An Intersubjective Approach (with Robert Stolorow and Bernard Brandchaft), Contexts of Being: The Intersubjective Foundations of Psychological Life (with Stolorow), and Working Intersubjectively: Contextualism in Psychoanalytic Practice (with Donna Orange and Stolorow), among many others. Working Intersubjectively is also one of the best books I have read in this field, and I have read most of them.

The playlist below contains 36 videos (19 lectures - all but 2 are two parts) and 19 hours of education.
