Originally published in 1987, paperback published 2000.
In the sequel to Structures of Subjectivity (1984), the authors apply the intersubjective approach to a wide array of clinical issues critical to psychoanalytic therapy, including the analysis of transference, resistance, psychic conflict, and the treatment of borderline and psychotic states. Rich clinical illustrations bear out the authors' contention that an intersubjective perspective can significantly enlarge analysts' and therapists' capacity for sustained empathic inquiry and thereby enhance the scope and effectiveness of psychoanalytic treatment.
