Synopses & Reviews
A distinguished teacher, researcher, and practitioner here shows how the perspectives of contemporary developmental theory and the therapeutic encounter can enrich each other.
""This treasurehouse of a book glows with contributions to every fundamental aspect of psychoanalysis. Dr. Pine moves with grace and authority between the worlds of child development and clinical process, between abstract theory and the concrete methods and data of child observation, and between classical psychoanalysis and the varieties of psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy. His well-chosen clinical examples are models of sensitivity, clarity, and ingenuity. Altogether, a remarkable achievement and a 'must' book for every psychoanalytic reader.""-Roy Schafer
