This brilliant and inspired book will quickly become a classic. The Scharffs, their colleagues, and students describe in detail and depth how psychotherapy can be taught and learned at both a cognitive and emotional level. -- Earl Hopper, Ph.D.
Object relations theory has moved into the central focus of contemporary clinical work. In Tuning the Therapeutic Instrument, Jill and David Scharff bring object relations theory alive by focusing on cognitive learning in the context of alertness to affective reactions. This facilitates an intense learning experience. The interpersonal relations of small groups, large groups, couples, and the family replay and amplify the internal world of object relations. This reactivation facilitates the diagnosis of those intrapsychic structures, their primitive regressive manifestations, as well as their resolution in interpretive work. All is abundantly illustrated with interactions between students and teachers in the group process. I highly recommend this book to clinicians, researchers, and educators. -- Otto Kernberg, M.D.
