Drawing on the latest research in attachment, infant studies, trauma, neurobiology, and developmental psychopathology, this book addresses central clinical issues in psychoanalysis, including transference, empathy, attunement, and intimacy. The authors offer a framework to integrate these ideas into new ways of thinking about what is transformative in the psychoanalytic dyad. They focus on how to stay attuned to the unfolding relationship between the analyst and the patient to enhance the patient's move toward a more coherent self.

Illustrated throughout with clinical case examples, this pioneering work takes new research and theories on how the mind works to refresh, revise, and expand theories of self psychology.

Morton Shane, MD, and Estelle Shane, MD, are founding members and past co-presidents of the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis, of which Mary Gales, MD, is the current co-president. All three coauthors are on the clinical faculty of the Department of Adult and Child Psychiatry at the University of California, Los Angeles.

"This is a masterful integration of self- psychology, attachment theory, and developmental systems perspectives. The authors do a superb job of extracting the major principles from each of these perspectives in a clear and cogent manner. There is a strong connection with contemporary research and theory in developmental psychology; because of this the authors preserve and yet transform psychoanalytic theory, and in so doing revitalize it as a clinical framework. The book is beautifully written. It is thoroughly lucid and engaging."
-L. Alan Sroufe, PhD, Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota

"A book so clear, cogent, and compelling that the reader is able to see its fundamental and revolutionary message as unassailable. The authors reposition psychoanalysis as a developmental experience and support their perspective with elegance and enthusiasm."
-Arnold Goldberg, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Rush Medical College; Training and Supervising Analysis, Institute for Psychoanalysis, Chicago
