5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading
This book is cited in virtually every book written on object relations theory since its publication. It gives a thorough background to the theories of all of the major contributors to object relations theory. It is brilliantly written and understandable with a basic knowledge of psychoanalytic jargon. An essential work.
Published on 2 Feb 1998

3.0 out of 5 stars couldnt get into it (red to page 250)
read the first 250 pages along with a psychologist friend
i have nothing against object relations i think its a worthwhile theory
and i still wish to learn more
but this book wasn't for us - after 250 pages we were still largely mulling over historical overviews and only the broadest of tendencies. little to no info on what these lines mean for the psyche...

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential book for professionals and students, 26 Oct 2007

This review is from: Object Relations in Psychoanalytic Theory (Hardcover)
As a psychotherapist I find myself coming back to this book, time after time. It's like you have to learn a bit of theory, forget about it while you improve your practice, realize your limitations, and study the some thing for new meanings and anchoring your knowledge. This book is one of the best for reframing you in the theory and helping you to figure out what's the best place to look for the extra knowledge you're lacking. The main theories covered are those by Freud, Klein, Fairbairn, Winnicott, Guntrip, Hartmenn, Mahler, Jacobson, Kerneberg, Kohut and J. Sandler. Another good reference that I like and tend to use a lot is the Nancy McWilliams' book "Psychoanalytic Diagnosis". If you are a therapist, you should have both in your library. But if you're not a professional or student, look elsewhere....

3.0 out of 5 stars couldnt get into it (red to page 250), 17 Aug 2011
This review is from: Object Relations in Psychoanalytic Theory (Hardcover)
read the first 250 pages along with a psychologist friend
i have nothing against object relations i think its a worthwhile theory
and i still wish to learn more
but this book wasn't for us - after 250 pages we were still largely mulling over historical overviews and only the broadest of tendencies. little to no info on what these lines mean for the psyche or how these theories play out in the patient's (or practitioner's) interpersonal relations

so its quite possible that the book gets radically better after page 250. but up until then we didnt get much out of this book.

i should state that i have nothing against histories of psychology - ive read millon's "masters of the mind" and liked it. perhaps this book was written for another litterary age.
