Treating borderline patients is one of the most challenging areas in psychotherapy because of the patient's extreme emotional expressions, the strain it places on the therapist, and the danger of the patient acting out and harming himself or the therapeutic relationship. Many clinicians consider this patient population difficult, if not impossible, to treat. However, in recent years dedicated experts have focused their clinical and research efforts on the borderline patient and have produced treatments that increase our success in working with borderline patients. Transference-Focused Therapy (TFP) is psychodynamic treatment designed especially for borderline patients. This book provides a concise and comprehensive introduction to TFP that will be useful both to experienced clinicians and also to students of psychotherapy.

In this remarkable volume, Yeomans, Clarkin, and Kernberg have accomplished the impossible by combining a highly sophisticated theory of psychopathology and technique with a practical handbook for the treatment of borderline patients. The reader will find here a concise review of a psychoanalytic approach to understanding borderline personality organization. The clinician will also find a detailed step-by-step guide to the complex process of turning the emotionally intense and often chaotic interactions generated by these patients into useful psychotherapeutic dialogue. While this book presents itself as A Primer of Transference-Focused Psychotherapy for the Borderline Patient, it has much to offer psychodynamic psychotherapists at all levels of experience in their treatment of patients at all levels of personality organization. -- Elizabeth L. Auchincloss, M.D., Weill Medical College of Cornell University
Yeomans, Clarkin, and Kernberg's A Primer of Transference-Focused Psychotherapy for the Borderline Patient stands out like a beacon to the rest of the psychodynamic community. In an era of empirically supported therapies, the work of the Cornell group has shown that it can be done, that it can be done superbly, and that it can be done without violating a single one of our cherished ideals as psychoanalytic clinicians. This is an excellent and immensely helpful introduction to the most successful program of intervention research on psychodynamic psychotherapy anywhere. It is a must-have. -- Peter Fonagy, University College, London
