Editorial Reviews

“Excellent. . . . This edition of Psychoanalytic Terms and Concepts deserves as wide an audience as possible. For the seasoned clinitian, it is nothing short of a superb review course, i.e., a veritable tour de force, of the expansive history (and current practice) of psychoanalytic thinking. Its definitions and explanations are so clear, well-researched, and devoid of the jargon so typical of psychoanalytic writing that it is also an essential read for the psychoanalytic neophyte.” —Sylvia R. Karusu, M.D., American Journal of Psychotherapy
