Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Fate of Borderline Patients should be carefully studied by mental health clinicians and researchers. There are very few books to which psychotherapists return, year after year, to validate clinical impressions or to gain assistance with conceptualizing difficult problems, or simply to become nourished and refreshed....This unusual book by Michael Stone is replete with clinical wisdom and original thinking. Reading it is an opportunity to receive supervision from a master clinician who has devoted his professional life to the study and treatment of borderline patients."--Richard C. Friedman, M.D. Journal of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis
 
American Journal of Psychiatry

"Remarkable...."--American Journal of Psychiatry
Psychoanalytic Books

"The importance of the present volume lay in its potential to enhance the predictive powers of clinicians who work with borderline patients...provides reassurance, perspective, and hope. "--Psychoanalytic Books
Journal of Psychotherapy Practice and Research

"Every mental health professional working with borderline patients will enjoy this book and learn from it. "--Journal of Psychotherapy Practice and Research
Hospital and Community Psychiatry

"It is a pleasure to read and easy to assimilate. This clarity makes the book valuable to us all who work in the front lines of patient care....I suspect this book will take it place in the ranks of other landmark longitudinal studies. It will be held in high esteem and will be quoted often by the investigators who follow and the clinicians who refer to it."--Hospital and Community Psychiatry
Booknews
