Editorial Reviews

Samuel Slipp
This book gives individual psychotherapists a way of using dynamic listening and interpreting when working with couples and families, and it offers family therapists the powerful tools of psychoanalysis to deepen their understanding and skills.
Alan A. Gurman
In Object Relations Family Therapy, David and Jill Scharff offer the most in-depth and thoughtful exploration of the relevance of modern psychoanalytic theory to family therapy to be found to date. . . . Recently the field is showing a reawakened interest in the psychodynamics of family relationships, and the Scharffs' book heralds this remarriage of concern with the inner and outer lives of people. I believe that he publication of this book is a significant event; it will become a modern classic.
