About the Author

George Hagman, LCSW, is a psychoanalyst and clinical social worker practicing in New York City and Stamford, Connecticut. A member of the faculty of the Training and Research Institute for Intersubjective Self Psychology, his most recent Routledge title is Creative Analysis: Art, creativity and clinical process (2014).


In this remarkable book, Hagman and his fellow psychoanalytic contributors bring psychoanalytic theory in line with the contemporary study of bereavement. They find that rather than an individual psychological process, mourning is interpersonal and social, and not about detaching from the dead, but rather about finding ways to preserve the bond and making sense of the death and life now forever changed. This book is a major breakthrough in psychoanalytic thought. Readers inside and outside the psychoanalytic tradition can read it as a good account of contemporary models of bereavement and therapeutic practice.-Dennis Klass, Ph.D. Author of Dead but not Lost: Grief Narratives in Religious Traditions (2005), The Spiritual Lives of Bereaved Parents (1995) and Editor of Continuing Bonds: New Understandings of Grief (1996).

We owe our gratitude to George Hagman, a wise clinical elder and humanist. His vision, writings, and his selection of like-minded contributors, brings a much-needed change to our old, dead psychoanalytic narratives of loss and mourning. Their collective work offers a vision of mourning that is open-ending, social and relational, transformative perhaps even creative, and allows for the truth of the human need for continuity of loving attachments even after death.-Donna Bassin, Ph.D. Author, artist, film-maker. Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor at New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis and private practice, New York City.
