Resistance is the word for a patient's defense mechanisms encountered in psychotherapy. They protect the individual from a variety of conscious or unconscious intrapsychic or interpersonal dangers, but interfere with the process of exploration and discovery, causing an impasse in treatment. Written for professional psychotherapists who may be puzzled by such an impasse, this book spotlights a wide variety of these resistances, so they can be addressed and resolved.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reading this book will help both new and experienced therapists to gain a greater understanding of resistance in both short-term and long-term treatments. * The American Journal of Psychoanalysis *
Once again, Dr. Horner has brought forth a valuable book that clarifies one of the central, brain-hammering difficulties we face in our clinical work-how to identify and manage resistance in psychotherapy. Not content to deal with the patient's resistance, she takes up the therapist's resistance as well, which as a supervisor of psychotherapists, she is eminently qualified to take on. -- Dr. Douglas H. Ingram, Journal of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis; Dynamic Psychiatry
Her clear exposition of theory and clinical cases renders her writings valuable for inexperienced therapists as well. Beginner and veteran alike will be better therapists after reading this book. -- Dr. William Rickles, California Graduate Institute for Clinical Psychology, Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis
Reflecting quite literally more than a half-century of clinical experience, Dr. Horner's new book offers compelling ways to think about the psychotherapeutic process. Armed with this superior understanding of resistance and the core relationship problem, readers of this well-constructed and well-written volume will return to their consulting rooms better prepared to break through resistance and, thereby, more effectively and confidently help their patients. -- Alan M. Karbelnig Ph.D., Southern California Psychoanalytic Institute
