REVIEWS AND REACTIONS
American Journal of Psychiatry:
A good starting place for therapists interested in a brief overview
of object relations therapy, this book gives the reader, neophyte or experienced
therapist, a nice theoretical framework to test. Basic, clear, and humane,
it sparkles with interventions both poignant and powerful.
Cashdan goes a long way to clarify a potentially confusing and complex
therapeutic process. The volume should be an impetus to others in the field
to explore their own approach to clients and to re-evaluate the process
of their therapeutic work.
Journal of Integrative and Eclectic Psychotherapy:
A valuable resource for advanced courses in psychotherapeutic concepts
and for psychotherapeutic supervision. This book is a good read. There
are many excellent clinical examples and vignettes.
Hans H. Strupp, Ph.D., Vanderbilt University:
The book is written in a lucid style and presents the reader with excellent
examples from the author's clinical work. The analysis of projective identifications,
without the use of jargon, is particularly valuable.
Donald J. Kiesler, Ph.D., Virginia Commonwealth University:
Cashdan's creative and stimulating book offers a truly novel and enlightening
version of object relations psychotherapy.
