Now available in paper for the first time, this classic text is about how an analyst analyzes. Rooted in the theory of psychoanalytic self psychology as put forth by Heinz Kohut and his colleagues, Treating the Self focuses on the application of the self-psychological concept of the psyche to the actual conduct of psychoanalytic treatment. The result is not a "how-to" approach, but rather a volume that suggests a theory of treatment and offers guidelines for creative ways of thinking about therapy. Written by Ernest Wolf, a close collaborator of Heinz Kohut, this is a personal account of the process of self psychology presented by one of the foremost experts in the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The volume is clearly written and one does not become entangled in a maze of psychoanalytic jargon or totured sentences. It is well worth reading as a review of this developing field, and provides a clear demonstration of the therapeutic value it holds....It can be recommended to those who wish to acquire familiarity with self psychology." --"The Journal of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis"

"Ernest Wolf, a student, friend, and collaborator of Heinz Kohut has observed at close range and participated in the evolution of psychoanalytic self psychology. From his privileged vantage point he presents us with a clear, concise, at at times moving rendtion of the treatment process based on his own clinical experiences. Wolf's focus is on clarifying basic concepts, but he also succeeds in portraying the complexities of the clinical ambience and process in a direct and simple manner without glossing over controversies. Beginners as well as seasoned clinicians will find this text both a delight and a challenge." --Paul H. Ornstein, M.D.
