  • 2.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.

  • 6.Sex On The Couch: What Freud Has to Teach Us About Sex and Gender (Book Review)
    Aan extensive discussion of sexuality in its different forms, both real and imaginary. There are both real and the imaginary forms of sexual differentiation, and the distinction is not always easy to make; but what strikes the reader in Boothby’s book is the description of certain characterizations of how the two sexes differ in their behaviors; sometimes these two aspects of reality look like sketches or even caricatures of what it means to be male or female.
