American Journal of Psychiatry
Dr. Horner presents rich and useful ideas for formulating and working dynamically with severely limited patients. Her integrative formulation of preoedipal pathology is both useful and practical.

No book with which we are familiar presents as good an account of the clinical application of the . . . psychoanalytic viewpoint as Object Relations and the Developing Ego in Therapy. No other exposition breathes life into these abstract principles as well as this volume does.
