"This book has many voices but one goal: to describe a new model for contemporary psychoanalysis. The authors develop its meaning from many rich and diverse perspectives. Sensitive cases illustrate the theory and make it more accessible for clinicians. This is a path-breaking and essential volume for anyone searching for coherence in the maze of contending approaches to psychotherapy that dominate the landscape." --Charles B. Strozier, PhD., Author, Heinz Kohut: The Making of a Psychoanalyst

"In this lucid and well-articulated volume, we are introduced to the intersection of Kohutian Self Psychology and Intersubjectivity Theory. Readers will find in this book accessible theoretical explanations, which are illustrated by excellent clinical examples. This is a must read for clinicians interested in this innovative approach to clinical work." --Joyce Slochower, Ph.D., ABPP, Professor Emerita, Hunter College & CUNY; Faculty NYU Steven Mitchell Center; Author, Holding and Psychoanalysis: A Relational Perspective & Psychoanalytic Collisions

"This book offers students, as well as experienced clinicians, a clear and skillfully illustrated guidebook that combines the most transformative aspects of Heinz Kohut's and Robert Stolorow's contributions. The chapters in the book abound with clinical examples for using this approach to treat individuals, children, and couples and in working with depression, addiction, suicidality, and sexuality." --Doris Brothers, Ph.D. Private practice, New York City, Author, Falling Backwards: An Exploration of Trust and Self Experience and Towards a Psychology of Uncertainty
