Don’t miss the launch of Adrian Perkel’s new book Unlocking the Nature of Human Aggression in Cape Town (4 Feb)
 More about the book!

Join Routledge and Jonathan Ball Publishers for the launch of Unlocking the Nature of Human Aggression: A Psychoanalytic and Neuroscientific Approach by Adrian Perkel.

The event’s guest speakers will be Dr Barnaby B Barratt, Dr Amita Sehgal and Dr Grant Sieff.

Unlocking the Nature of Human Aggression is a neuropsychoanalytic and scientific exploration of aggression and argues for its central role in psychopathology and the genesis of individual symptoms, as well as in broader systemic conflicts and violence.

Offering a fresh and innovative insight into the nature of this paradoxical drive in humans, this book integrates the psychology, psychodynamics, and neuroscience of modern research into a coherent exposition of this key aspect of psychic functioning in humans.

It is an essential read for analysts in practice and training, psychologists and other mental health professionals, and students looking for a modernised theoretical model of the destructive and aggressive drive of the psyche to facilitate better interventions for individual and couple patients and for interventions at systemic and organisational levels.
