This book provides an historical and contemporary overview of the concept of transference in psychotherapy. The traditional view of transference is contrasted with the more modern relational view. The "old" model views transference as a displacement of feelings and thoughts from the important people of childhood to a relatively neutral, anonymous and abstinent therapist. The "new" model places more emphasis on the "joint creation" of the transference by patient and therapist.

"Drs. Goldstein and Goldberg distill the essential elements of classic transference and trace its evolution to contemporary theory and practice. The authors present a thorough, lucid, and succinct understanding of transference, which will be extremely useful for students as well as seasoned practitioners. Using the Transference in Psychotherapy makes a unique and exceptional contribution to the field of psychodynamic psychotherapy."—Aimee G.
