Symington, N. (2007) Becoming a Person through Psychoanalysis

   Thoroughly enjoyable read. 

 

Parsons, Michael (2014) Living Psychoanalysis: From Theory to Experience.  "What does it mean to be fully and creatively alive?....Have psychoanalysts anything to say about this?"  

 

Parsons, Michael (2000) The Dove that Returns, The Dove that Vanishes: Paradox and Creativity in Psychoanalysis.

 

Symington, Neville (1996) The Analytic Experience. This is a collection of the thirty lectures given at the Tavistock Clinic. 

 

Others on British Independents:

Raynor, E. (1990) The Independent Mind in British Psychoanalysis

 

Kohon, G. (1986) The British School of Psychoanalysis: The Independent Tradition (see next reference)

 

British Psychoanalysis: New Perspectives in the Independent Tradition. (2018) This edition of Kohon's edited work is not a ‘second edition’, but rather demonstrative of the current developments in British Independent thinking…

 

Williams, P, et al (Ed) (2012)  Independent Psychoanalysts Today 

 

Caldwell, Lesley (Ed) (2007) Winnicott and the Psychoanalytic Tradition.  Karnac 

 

Ella Freeman Sharpe (1947) The Psychoanalyst included in the Collected Papers of Ella Freeman Sharpe 1950.  No reading of the development of the Independents would be complete without reading this short paper by EFS. 

 

The short video is of Neville Symington - a few years ago in London.
