Rising above the polemics surrounding sexual and physical abuse, David and Jill Savege Scharff bring a relational perspective to the integration of psychoanalytic and trauma theories in order to understand the effects of overwhelming physical and psychological trauma, including sexual abuse, injury, and birth defect. The Scharffs draw from their object relations therapy with individuals, families, and couples recovering from trauma and abundance of relevant clinical examples described in their characteristically personal and vivid style.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A comprehensive synthesis of past and present theory with pragmatic clinical approaches to traumatized patients. Integrating an historical perspective on the conceptual and political issues of sexual and physical abuse, together with a very candid, self-observing commentary on their own reactions, the authors richly contextualize their therapeutic interventions and countertransference. Salient treatment dilemmas and contentious sociopolitical issues such as "false memories" are examined in an open and thoughtful fashion. An important source of ideas and inspiration for psychotherapists working in this area. -- Frank W. Putnam, M.D., Chief, Dissociative Disorders Group, National Institute of Mental Health
Object Relations Therapy of Physical and Sexual Trauma is a timely and impressive examination of the causes, effects, and therapeutic solutions to trauma. The Scharffs examine the psychoanalytic literature on trauma with meticulous attention and present the psychanalytic view in a lucid and fair-minded manner, all the more impressive given the emotionally intoxicating effect of the subject matter in contemporary America. Their own understanding of trauma and its treatment is presented through the moving accounts of the patients they have treated, giving this book a unique quality: somewhere between Havelock Ellis and Dickens. Not all will agree with their point of view, but if one book could embrace a topic as complex as that of trauma, it is hard to imagine a more lucid, moving, and generous presentation. -- Christopher Bollas, PhD, British Psychoanalytical Society
