Robert Caper, M.D.
Robert Caper, M.D. is one of a small number of American psychoanalysts who has made original contributions to Kleinian theory. He is a graduate from Reed College and UCLA School of Medicine and trained at the Psychoanalytic Centre of California at that time very much influenced by the presence of Bion, Albert Mason and Jim Grotstein. He has written numerous papers on psychoanalytic theory and technique and two important books. In Immaterial Facts (1988) he gives an excellent outline of current Kleinian theory that is useful reading for the beginner and expert alike. In A Mind of One’s Own (1999) he further develops his ideas and returns to many of the same themes 10 years later.
