  • 2.Thinking in Circles: An Essay on Ring Composition (Book Review)
    Our current view of time is so linear that we do not realize how much it organizes our thinking about the mind. Ring composition, however, implies a more circular view of time.

  • 3.A Primer of Transference-Focused Psychotherapy for the Borderline Patient (Book Review)
    The psychotherapy treatment manual universe is not monolithic, and it is a pleasure to review a manual that falls within the group of treatment manuals that view the subjectivity of the therapist as a central ingredient for the soup that is psychotherapy.

This primer of Transference Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) co-written with Frank Yeomans and John Clarkin further reveals that psychodynamic psychotherapy is alive and well, supported by both theory and empirical data.

  • 10.Broken Fathers/ Broken Sons: A Psychoanalyst Remembers (Book Review)
    Dr. Gerald Gargiulo’s moving memoir portrays transcending a painful childhood of feeling like a “broken son,” a “Humpty Dumpty” to his disappointing “broken father.” Although identification with the fate of Humpty Dumpty haunted him, it is also paradoxical.
