From the Publisher"Judy Kantrowitz has ranged like a microscopist across a decade of research using information provided by 399 psychoanalysts about their personal engagements with self-analysis under the impact of their clinical work. The results are an impressive blending of generalizations supported by large numbers and specific detailing etched in individual experience. For every analyst who has ever been caught up in self-inquiry while fretting over its significance as self-analysis, this richly documented and clearly written exploration offers both challenge and comfort."
- James T. McLaughlin, M.D., Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Institute
"This book has its own impact on the reader, and the best word for that effect is liberating. In her elegant research, Dr. Kantrowitz has explored an issue that has been talked about for many years and presented her findings with clarity and precision. No therapist can afford to ignore this book, and everyone will feel much the better for reading it."
- Arnold Goldberg, M.D., Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis
"Although the idea that the analytic situation is an interactional field is by now a truism, there has heretofore been no in-depth study of the impact of the patient on the analyst and its effect on the analytic process. Dr. Kantrowitz's book is therefore a groundbreaking contribution, and analysts of all persuasions will derive great benefit from it."
- Arnold Richards, M.D., JAPA
“[T]his volume yields deep insights into the considerable impact that patients can have on even the most experienced analysts. If the book can exert a similar impact on analysts, whether in training or advanced in their careers, it will forever change the way we conceptualize the psychoanalytic process, how we teach, and how we view therapeutic outcome.”
