Authoritative and comprehensive, this volume provides a contemporary psychodynamic perspective on frequently encountered psychological disorders in adults, children, and adolescents. Leading international authorities review the growing evidence base for psychoanalytic theories and therapeutic models. Chapters examine the etiology and psychological mechanisms of each disorder and thoroughly describe effective treatment strategies. Highly accessible, the book is richly illustrated with clinical case material. It demonstrates ways in which psychodynamic theory and therapy are enhanced by integrating ideas and findings from neuroscience, social and personality psychology, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and other fields.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Bringing together some of our most distinguished psychoanalytic clinicians and researchers, this volume is a rare treasure trove of contemporary psychodynamic thinking and practice rooted in an evidence-based framework. It is set to become essential reading for mental health professionals in training and beyond."--Alessandra Lemma, DClinPsych, Visiting Professor, Psychoanalysis Unit, University College London, United Kingdom

"This volume is a landmark contribution and an essential resource for all clinicians, researchers, and trainees. Leaders in the field provide the most comprehensive, up-to-date synthesis currently available of relevant research and its implications for psychoanalytic theory and practice. The Handbook will become the standard reference in this area and will have a significant impact on the way in which the broader mental health field approaches the etiology, conceptualization, classification, and treatment of psychological and psychiatric problems."--Jeremy D. Safran, PhD, Department of Psychology, The New School for Social Research

"This magnificent handbook not only demonstrates the tremendous richness of psychodynamic thinking about psychopathology, but also links it to empirical research and to neighboring disciplines like personality and social psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience. I highly recommend this unique volume to anyone interested in the empirical validation of contemporary psychodynamic concepts."--Stephan Doering, MD, Professor and Director, Department of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, Medical University of Vienna, Austria

"From stellar editors and contributors, this impressive volume is a thoughtful gift to the field. Its perspectives on psychopathology are cutting edge and empirically supported. Readers from graduate students to senior clinicians and researchers will find this book invaluable."--J. Christopher Muran, PhD, Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, Adelphi University; Director, Mount Sinai Beth Israel Psychotherapy Research Program
