Review quote

With the help of many case examples, the essays explore a wide range of important topics, including divorce, stepfamilies, AIDS, family business consultation, narcissism, and sexual dysfunction. Founded on object relations theory, the discussions integrate current attachment, trauma, and neuroscience research. ...the book revises and updates psychoanalytic thinking and its application in family therapy. The application of psychoanalytical concepts, which is achieved through the many case studies offered, demystifies this therapy approach, making it accessible to both students and professionals. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals. CHOICE New Paradigms for Treating Relationships brings previously unheard voices from many countries together to create a global perspective that brings depth and breadth to psychoanalytic couple and family therapy. The book demonstrates the value placed internationally on applying psychoanalytic insight to understanding family dynamics and devising treatment for families and couples. The book gives access to the illuminating ways of thinking about analytic couple and family therapy described in the Spanish, French, and German literature. It widens readers' focus while staying true to the in-depth way of working with the unconscious that is characteristic of psychoanalysis. Sir Read Alot Book Review In New Paradigms for Treating Relationships the Scharffs have assembled a rich collection of psychoanalytic thinking about the family generously illustrated with case studies to show how complex abstractions are lived out and put into practice. -- Michael P. Nichols author of The Lost Art of Listening ...the editors have brought together an impressive collection of papers, which together convey something of the richness, the diversity, and the energy of an approach to work with couples and families that is generating a growing level of interest in Australia and internationally. -- Jim Crawley, Psychotherapist, WA. In case you thought that creative psychoanalytic thinking about marital and family relationship had come to an end years ago, take another look. This new book, edited by the pre-eminent object-relations family therapists, Jill and David Scharff, is the best volume in this area to appear in many years. It will broaden and deepen the understanding of couple and family relationships of therapists of all theoretical orientations. -- Alan S.
