Describing in detail her analytic treatment of eight female homosexuals with common symptoms of incomplete body image and unconscious denial of differences between the sexes, Siegel details the recurring treatment phases that typified their analyses and offers formulations based on both ego-developmental and object-relational perspectives. She candidly describes the countertransferential issues that entered into the treatment of these women and examines basic societal assumptions about sexuality that are imprinted on the analyst.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"While the psychoanalytic literature on male homosexuality has been rather extensive, that on female homosexuality has been sparse. This volume contains the most comprehensive clinical investigation of this subject and the largest sample of female homosexuals treated by a single psychoanalyst. This is a thoughful, comprehensive contribution to the subject of female homosexuality. The author's highly original formulations, practical applications, and case studies are of considerable interest and value. This is a book that will not gather dust on the shelf."

- Theo L. Dorpat, M.D., Contemporary Psychiatry

"The material is well organized and instructive, with many references. The case studies, in particular, present an illuminating picture of the analytic process and the author's point of view. This scholarly book is a welcome and timely addition to the limited clinical literature on female homosexuality."

- Frida G. Surawicz, M.D., Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

"On the basis of extensive psychoanalytic experience, as well as an extensive review of psychoanalytic theory, the author provides an ego-development/object-relations view of female homosexuality. Included are eight detailed case studies and a chapter on parental profiles, as well as a chapter on countertransference. This careful study is bound to become a key reference in the area."

- Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
