  • 2.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. As one would expect, the latest offering from Otto Kernberg’s group affords a significant amount of space to the topic of countertransference, and provides specific examples illustrating the therapist’s use of their own emotional state in order to guide intervention with borderline patients. 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.

  • 7.The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph From the Frontiers of Science (Book Review)
    Doidge takes the reader by the hand and carefully explains that the brain can and does change throughout life. Contrary to the original belief that after childhood the brain begins a long process of decline, he shows us that our brains have the remarkable power to grow, change, overcome disabilities, learn, recover, and alter the very culture that has the potential to deeply affect human nature.

  • 8.Mentalizing in Clinical Practice (Book Review)
    The two books reviewed, the first edited by Jon Allen and Peter Fonagy, the second written by Jon Allen, Peter Fonagy, and Anthony Bateman, present discussions of mentalization for everyday clinicians, especially for those that have little or no interest in an approach that touts unapologetically its origins in psychoanalysis.
