There is currently a burgeoning interest in the relationship between the Western psychotherapeutic and Buddhist meditative traditions among therapists, researchers, and spiritual seekers. Psychotherapy and Buddhism initiates a conversation between these two modern methods of achieving greater self-understanding and peace of mind. Dr. Jeffrey B. Rubin explores how they might be combined to better serve patients in therapy and adherents to a spiritual way of life. He examines the strengths and limitations of each tradition through three contexts: the nature of self, conception of ideal health, and process of achieving optimal health. The volume features the first two cases of Buddhists in psychoanalytic treatment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Highly recommended.'
Choice
`Buddhism is now part of the contemporary cultural landscape and no other non-Western tradition has made such a large contribution to the family of psychotherapies. Rubin has done a superb job reviewing that contribution, pointing out the perils, as well as the possibilities, and describes what it looks like in clinical life.'
American Journal of Psychotherapy
`... this is an unusually well thought out and clearly articulated contribution to the integration of psychanalysis and Buddhism. It is a balanced presentation suitable for those with their own inner conflicts and who are also prompted toward a spiritual quest.'
The Psychoanalytic Review, 86:5 (1999)
