  • 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. 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.

  • 9.Sensuality and Sexuality Across the Divide of Shame (Book Review)
    Mace, Moorey, and Roberts are British psychiatrists who have assembled diverse authors to illuminate and critique the state of thinking about empirically validated treatments (EVTs). The collection of essays under review is a critique: the contributors are less interested in weighing the inventory of what we know and are much more interested in puzzling over what it is we are thinking about.
