Editorial Reviews

Psychoanalytic Books
Danielle Knafo has compiled an impressive list of contributors in psychology, psychiatry, and traumatology, many of whom are identified as psychoanalysts, but there are several who specialize in the trauma field as well; therefore the reader will appreciate divergent perspectives coming from different albeit complementary disciples....This is a definitive sourcebook on the interface between psychoanalysis and the field of trauma studies.
