The term object relations refers to specific intrapsychic structures, to an aspect of ego organization. These intrapsychic structures, the mental representations of self and other (the object), become manifest in the interpersonal situation. Object-relations thinking has become central rather than peripheral to the understanding and treatment of patients. By integrating clinical observation with explanatory concepts concerning the nature and development of object relations. The author provides a logical framework within which to order, understand, and put to use the data of therapy. The text brings together attachment theory, cognitive theory dealing with mental structures, and object-relations theory while placing major emphasis on the evolution, within the maternal matrix, of a cohesive, reality-based, object-related self. Just as in this context the primary mothering person is viewed as the mediator of organization, so the therapist is viewed as the mediator of organization within the therapeutic matrix.
