  • 3.A Primer of Transference-Focused Psychotherapy for the Borderline Patient (Book Review)
    The psychotherapy treatment manual universe is not monolithic, and it is a pleasure to review a manual that falls within the group of treatment manuals that view the subjectivity of the therapist as a central ingredient for the soup that is psychotherapy. As one would expect, the latest offering from Otto Kernberg’s group affords a significant amount of space to the topic of countertransference, and provides specific examples illustrating the therapist’s use of their own emotional state in order to guide intervention with borderline patients. This primer of Transference Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) co-written with Frank Yeomans and John Clarkin further reveals that psychodynamic psychotherapy is alive and well, supported by both theory and empirical data.

    Doidge takes the reader by the hand and carefully explains that the brain can and does change throughout life.

  • 8.Group Treatment of Adolescents in Context: Outpatient, Inpatient, And School (Book Review)

  • 9.The Seduction Theory in the Twenty-First Century: Trauma, Fantasy and Reality (Book Review)
    Offers one opportunity to explore what is at stake with the seduction theory and the question of its contemporary relevance from a variety of perspectives. It is one go at making that landscape more clear. A deep engagement with the volume can help a reader understand better whether and how she or he wants to take a stand within it.

  • 10.Coparticipant Analysis: Toward a New Theory of Clinical Inquiry (Book Review)
    More than a little enigmatic. Its full title claims that it is a book of theory, which it is. Yet its main aim is to fully describe and define what is essentially a technical approach.
