Too powerful and unifying a theory of technique hovering over the analyst can burden a treatment. An individual's practical technique is in the details and in the moment. In fact, many of the recent contributions to psychoanalytic technique can be seen as additive rather than substitutive, each in its time and place.

These are among the core ideas underlying Pineís engaging work. His flexible and integrative thinking is rich in clinical reasoning, concepts and illustrations. Starting from a discussion of the sources of diversity in technique, Pine examines a number of specific clinical pathways into the daily work between analyst and analysand, having to do with transference and extratransference, the intrapsychic and the interactive, amongst others.
This book is simultaneously a highly personal statement and a concise discussion of selected issues that confront the practicing analyst today. But Pineís personal evolution reflects issues confronting the field as a whole, and every clinician-reader will find himself or herself in the authorís intellectual searchings and will be enriched by his responsible and serious open-mindedness. -- from the publisher
