"Affect in Psychoanalysis is an exciting book that draws on all psychoanalytic traditions in a remarkably unbiased and wonderfully balanced way. Spezzano remains fair to all these traditions while extracting what is valuable from each to construct a model of psychoanalytic theory and practice in which affects have the central role they deserve."
- Lewis Aron, Ph.D., Director, NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis
"Unafraid to question authority and challenge received wisdom, Dr. Spezzano adds a significant new vooice to the ongoing psychoanalytic dialogue on affects. With erudition and synthetic skill, he explores affect theory from multiple perspectives without losing sight of the relational context. He writes about these complex matters clearly and simply; his book, in addition to being highly informative, is a pleasure to read."
James W. Barron, Ph.D., author, Humor and Psyche (Analytic Press, 1999)
"This is a much-needed book on a crucial yet neglected topic. Spezzano tackles some of the thorniest conceptual issues in psychoanalysis, always staying in touch with the vital core of clinical work. His approach is original and stimulating - it will help us take a fresh look at the way we think about our patients. I recommend the book to therapists of all orientations and to other interested in studying the human condition."
- Jay Greenberg, Ph.D., Training and Supervising Analyst, Willian Alanson White Institute
