"This pioneering comprehensive volume establishes the new field of psychoanalytic organizational psychology. By unifying elements from articles that have touched on the topic, Diamond and Allcorn have provided a complete and definitive volume on a subject that has previously been only tangentially and partially explored. It will endure as the fundamental volume for scholars and consultants, setting a model for the field. This is a monumental accomplishment for which readers will long be grateful." - Harry Levinson, Ph.D. Clinical Professor of Psychology Emeritus, Harvard Medical School, President Emeritus, the Levinson Institute
"What is organizational well-being and how do we understand and foster it? Drawing on decades of fieldwork, Diamond and Allcorn beautifully describe how consultants for organizational improvement uncover lurking problems in the workplace: how organizational fragmentation turns into confrontational identity units, complicated transference-countertransference issues, difficulty mourning losses, and psychological pressures of psychogeography. The book s psychoanalytically framed techniques illustrate methods for effective intervention, especially timely in light of today s concerns about globalization and the recent turbulence in financial markets." - Vamik D. Volkan, M. D., the author of Blind Trust: Large Groups and Their Leaders in Times of Crises and Terror and Killing in the Name of Identity: A Study of Bloody Conflicts
