This book, together with the series of seminal journal articles he published over the past 30 years are a testament to Gray's pioneering intellect. They have stirred up enormous interest and controversy about the most important part of psychoanalytic technique: how the analyst listens.

What People Are Saying

Dorothy Holmes, Ph.D.
With perfect clarity this book informs the mental health practitioner and scholar on the essential nature of psychoanalysis. It demystifies and defines the ego capacities within the analyst and the patient necessary to do the work of analysis. The technical focus and tools required of the analyst are beautifully explicated, as are multiple sources and contents of resistance inevitably used by patients during the course of treatment. The personal and theoretical difficulties therapists face in doing defense analysis also are brought to light.... The complete anatomy of this method of analysis is drawn...with illuminating clinical examples....This book is equally as useful for supervisors of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy as it is for practitioners, for it offers an exclusive model of the process of supervision that compliments the recommended treatment approach. In its fairness and lucidity, The Ego and Analysis of Defense makes... the technique in defense analysis eminently understandable.
Arnold Richards, M.D.
... The Ego and Analysis of Defense will be read with admiration for Dr. Gray's scholarship and creativity; at the end the reader will find Tray's precision compelling, his argument sound. He's one of the small group of psychoanalysts who have earned the rank of master.
