Dr. Blanck addresses a broad range of topics including how to design the treatment, build psychic structure, learn from symptoms and defenses, formulate a developmental diagnosis, teach parenting skills, and know when medication is desirable. Her lively and very practical use of a model case demonstrates the application of her thinking to clinical technique and interventions. An excellent teaching resource, this book is ideal for practicing clinicians, supervisors, residents, and graduate students in clinical psychology and social work.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Dr. Blanck draws from her extensive experience as a clinician, teacher, and writer with this wide-ranging gem. She concisely reviews the evolution of psychoanalytic psychology, and demonstrates ways to apply an understanding of character structure in the diagnosis and treatment of the neuroses and borderline states. As a contributor to the mainstream of psychoanalysis, she combines accepted practices and her own innovative ideas useful to both new and seasoned therapists. She ends with a hopeful look at the future of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The annotated bibliography gives helpful, concise summaries of the references. There is much to think about in this book; it should be in every therapist's hand. -- David F. Freeman M.D., training analyst, University of North Carolina-Duke University Psychoanalytic Education Program
In this rich, scholarly, highly readable primer, Gertrude Blanck brings to the fore the findings of those first generation ego psychologists whose contributions serve as the foundation for contemporary psychodynamic theory. Through clinical examples, she demonstrates how their contributions, integrated with more recent development, enrich our current treatment of a wide range of patients. Readers will welcome Dr. Blanck's timely thoughts about primary prevention, and the application of her approach in today's managed-care world. This book reads like a mini-encyclopedia of analytic thought. It will be an invaluable tool for students, teachers, and practitioners. -- Joyce Edward, C.S.W., co-editor, Fostering Healing and Growth: A Psychoanalytic Social Work Approach
This is a solid book for the learning and teaching of the dynamic psychotherapies. It can well serve students, practitioners, and teachers alike. Opening with a sonnet of Shakespeare's that extols the timeless blend of love and object constancy, Dr. Blanck weaves a fusion of contemporary ego psychology and object relations theory into her superordinate, inclusive developmental perspective. Successfully eschewing facile solutions of partial theories, the author provides pithy clinical examples throughout to demonstrate her careful and sensitive application of enduring psychoanalytic principles. This book adds an invaluable resource for the scientific background of psychotherapy, much needed in the period ahead. -- Leo Rangell, M.D., honorary president, International Psychoanalytic Association
