The contributors to this timely book have successfully evaluated and updated the implications of concepts and practices in an extensive range of topics, as well as made these ideas accessible to new audiences. Most impressive is the concise but excellent historical and updated literature reviews designed to orient the reader to how theory has evolved over time. The illustrative clinical material demonstrates t he contemporary relevance of psychoanalytic ideas and practices that identify questions that still need to be answered. There is a gem of a chapter on open systems theory, leading to multiple simultaneous meaning making attempts and repairs, as well as a chapter on how to keep open and fluid the process of gender creativity. The range of expertise, depth and breadth of these authors is impressive. This is vitally important reading for psychotherapists from all backgrounds. The authors provide a masterful translation of complex concepts into a clinical approach that is forever enhancing. -- Wendy Olesker, PhD, New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute
The contributors to this volume, who were influenced by Margaret Mahler, give her the recognition that her work deserves. It is unfortunate that the more recent interest in attachment theory has made some psychoanalysts lose sight of the importance of separation individuation in child hood and in all subsequent phases of the life cycle. Margaret Mahler's work remains for the most part theoretically sound and clinically apt as is evident in all the chapters of the book. -- Arnold Richards, MD, editor of internationalpsychoanalysis.net
