Object Relations Therapy by Sheldon Cashdan

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.

Contemporary Psychology:
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.
