Emphasizing the transformational possibilities that grow out of their relational model of therapy, David E. and Jill Savege Scharff invite us into the territory of interactive journeys with individual patients in this latest entry in their Library of Object Relations. A synergistic mix of clarity and passion informs their review of principles and procedures to land us on the continent of self and object relations that each dyad will explore anew. Each journey touches the therapist in a different way, drawing on and challenging different capacities. Co-directors of the International Institute for Object Relations Therapy, the Scharffs authoritatively introduce the origins (Fairbairn, Klein, Winnicott, Bion), key tenets, and recent advances in the evolution of analytic theory into relational form. Their integral elucidation of clinical practice (structure, technique, case examples) affirms and actualizes their vision of transference and countertransference as collateral, reciprocal, subjective experiences. A contemporary classic.

Object Relations and Self Psychology are two leading schools of psychological thought discussed in social work classrooms and applied by practitioners to a variety of social work populations. Yet both groups have lacked a basic manual for teaching and reference -- until now. For them, Dr. Eda G. Goldstein's book fills a void on two fronts: Part I provides a readable, systematic, and comprehensive review of object relations and self psychology, while Part II gives readers a friendly, step-by-step description and illustration of basic treatment techniques. For educators, this textbook offers a learned and accessible discussion of the major concepts and terminology, treatment principles, and the relationship of object relations and self psychology to classic Freudian theory. Practitioners find within these pages treatment guidelines for such varied problems as illness and disability, the loss of a significant other, and such special problems as substance abuse, child maltreatment, and couple and family disruptions. In a single volume, Dr. Goldstein has met the complex challenges of education and clinical practice.
