Interpretation of Dreams, by Rod Moss
Craig San Roque, community psychologist and psychotherapist has, for the past 30 years lived in Central Australia working within indigenous Australian circumstances. He has written many careful accounts of the existential realities of intercultural collaborations and tensions. Trained in London, with the Society for Analytical Psychology, he cautiously adapts and applies psychoanalytic insights to help negotiate the rough environment of Aboriginal/white Australian relations.
Mourning Melancholia and The Echo Effect - on aspects of unconscious transference within black/white relations - is distilled from experience in a project co-developed with indigenous friends who are part of the Central Australian NPY Women’s Council, Uti Kulintjaku/Clear Thinking project, initiated by traditional healers (Ngangkari).

Over the last thirty years, there have been significant changes in the structure of families and couples. These include challenges to the traditional family structure, women’s empowerment, a rebellion against the patriarchy and the legitimization of same-sex couples. All of these have brought about a dramatic increase in the diversity of family configurations. In this book, the authors aim to take into account these new configurations and explore new ways of thinking about the links within families, couples and siblings. Their book describes clinical interventions which are based on the link approach, which enables the broadening of the range of classical psychoanalytic resources. The link approach is not content with proposing just one more application of psychoanalysis but seeks to account conceptually for the territorial expansion that has occurred in contemporary psychoanalysis.
