Everyone experiences bad feelings. These negative feelings and the defense mechanisms that are employed in response to them are the subjects of this thoughtful study. In BAD FEELINGS, Schafer emphasizes the extremes of shame--humiliation and mortification, disappointment, envy, abandonment, rejection, mournful loss, and more. Schafer's engaging clinical presentations illustrate the complex process of enabling the individual to mature when such a step has been anxiously avoided for years. --- from the publisher


"A highly successful synthesis and integration of Freudian, ego-psychological, and neo-Kleinian theory, each of which Schafer has mastered in his long career . . . provides the reader with features experienced when in supervision with a master clinician: deep theoretical understanding, empathy, and clear technique." -Psychologist-Psychoanalyst

"By focusing on painful affects and our defenses against them, this master clinician has found the natural bridge across which the two traditions can meet. . . . BAD FEELINGS provides a unique window into the envy, humiliation, disappointment, and despair suffered by both patient and analyst." -Henry F. Smith, M.D., Editor, The Psychoanalytic Quarterly

"A cameo masterpiece . . . Schafer's powerful analysis of the way our feelings as analysts, formed in the hothouse of clinical encounters, can influence not only our interventions but our conceptualizations as well. Highly recommended." -David Tuckett, University College, London
