Mason, A. (2018). Albert Mason on ‘Bion and Binocular Vision’. PEP/UCL Top Authors Project, 1(1):28.
 

Albert Mason describes how he came to know Bion, his experience of supervision with him, and explains how the two of them came to move to Los Angeles. He discusses the significance of Bion’s military experiences for his work and reflects on the reasons for Bion’s introduction of the concept of O.

Chodorow, N. (2018). Nancy J. Chodorow on ‘The American Independent Tradition: Loewald, Erikson, and the (Possible) Rise of Intersubjective Ego Psychology’. PEP/UCL Top Authors Project, 1(1):23.
 

Nancy J. Chodorow argues that there is a trend within American psychoanalysis that can be characterized as an American Independent tradition analogous to the British Independent tradition, although there are some differences. She proposes that one way of describing this tradition is as an intersubjective ego psychology and explains how her view of intersubjectivity differs from the common contemporary understanding of intersubjectivity as a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. She discusses the significance of the work of Loewald and Erikson in articulating the American Independent tradition.

Kernberg, O. (2018). Otto Kernberg on ‘Institutional Problems of Psychoanalytic Education’. PEP/UCL Top Authors Project, 1(1):24.
 

Otto Kernberg describes the experiences that led him to develop his theory about the institutional problems of psychoanalytic education. He explains how transference and countertransference in closed institutions tend to produce authoritarian institutional structures, gives some reasons for the difficulties analysts have had in reflecting on this problem, and considers the extent to which the situation has improved since he first began to highlight the problem.

Celenza, A. (2018). Andrea Celenza on "The Threat of Male to Female Erotic Transference". PEP/UCL Top Authors Project, 1(1):22.
 

Andrea Celenza considers the reasons for the historical neglect of male-to-female erotic transference and links this neglect to the chronic desexualization of psychoanalytic theorizing. She discusses how the shift to psychoanalysis as a two-person and multi-character phenomenon is implicated, including in particular the desexualization of the maternal (erotic) transference, while also making the task of analyzing erotic transferences (and their transformations) more complex. She considers the emergence of multiple erotic transferences as a nongendered, vital part of analyses and discusses the importance of consultation in safeguarding the asymmetric treatment frame.

5. 
Lear, J. (2018). Jonathan Lear on ‘Wisdom Won from Illness: The Psychoanalytic Grasp of Human Being’. PEP/UCL Top Authors Project, 1(1):26.
 

Jonathan Lear shows how the work of key writers in the Western philosophical tradition can illuminate our understanding of the process of change in psychoanalysis. He explains the distinction between theoretical and practical wisdom and its relevance to psychoanalysis using a detailed clinical example and discusses the significance of free association in facilitating the process of change.

6. 
Fonagy, P. (2018). Peter Fonagy on ‘Playing With Reality: I. Theory of Mind and the Normal Development of Psychic Reality’. PEP/UCL Top Authors Project, 1(1):27.
 

Peter Fonagy discusses the influence of developmental science on his formulation of the concepts of psychic equivalence, the pretend mode and mentalization. He considers the relationship of these concepts with classical psychoanalytic concepts and explores their clinical utility. He addresses the question of the aim of psychoanalytic treatment and the relationship of the concept of mentalizing with theories of conflict..

Young-Bruehl, E. Duckler, G. (2016). On Childism by Elisabeth Young-Bruehl: Lecture, March 26, 2011. PEP Videostream, 1(1):24.
 

This is the last-known lecture of Elisabeth Young-Bruehl. In it, she outlines her observations and theoretical understanding of how children have been subjected to a long-standing (and in many ways, unconscious) prejudice. This systemic and cultural prejudice shares many similarities with ways in which minorities, women and LGBQT members have been seen and treated as objects that serve functions for others rather than people in their own right.

White, C. Palmer, R. Davies, W. (2017). Being There. PEP Video Grants, 1(2):13.
 

Being There is an observational documentary following women supporting vulnerable and isolated new mums in Alexandra, a poor and overcrowded area in Johannesburg. The women, all mothers themselves, work as home visitors for Ububele, an infant mental health charity in South Africa. They tirelessly offer support to new mothers in their township, helping them to develop strong, sensitive relationships with their children, and to help these newborns reach their potential, despite their circumstances. The film demonstrates how psychoanalytic ideas can be applied in innovative and radical ways to address pressing and major global health and social problems.

(2017). Irma Brenman Pick on her 80th birthday: British Psychoanalytic Society Scientific Meeting. Instit. Psa UK AV Proj. Videostream, 1(1):16.

Steiner, J. (2017). Melanie Klein’s Technique Then and Now. Instit. Psa UK AV Proj. Videostream, 1(1):15.
 

John Steiner’s presentation, ‘Melanie Klein’s Technique Then and Now’, given at West Lodge in June 2015, with contributions from the event’s chair, Priscilla Roth, and discussion panel members Ron Britton and Michael Feldman, plus an audience question and answer session. In his presentation, Steiner explores the content of Melanie Klein’s six (then) unpublished lectures on technique, which Klein originally presented in 1936. He describes the development of Klein’s play technique, her thoughts on of the ‘analytic attitude’, her ideas about the deep connection between the positive and negative transference, and her view on the fundamental importance of transference and the exploration of unconscious phantasies within psychoanalytic technique. Steiner discusses two issues that remain controversial: how to understand countertransference and use it in the pursuit of understanding the patient, and to what extent the analyst should remain in the ‘here and now’ of the session or make links with the patient’s unconscious via the patient’s early history. He also draws on a transcript of a seminar Klein held in 1958 with young analysts of the British Psychoanalytical Society, to demonstrate developments in Klein's thinking during the intervening years.
