A decade in the making, the Handbook is the definitive contemporary exposition of interpersonal psychoanalysis. It provides an authoritative overview of development, psychopathology, and treatment as conceptualized from the interpersonal viewpoint.
"Interpersonal psychoanalysis has had an enormous, although largely unacknowledged, impact on contemporary psychoanalytic theory and clinical practice. This Handbook makes the interpersonal literature, indeed the entire interpersonal tradition, accessible in an integrated, systematic way for the first time. It is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in psychoanalytic ideas."
