Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Therapist's Pregnancy provides a thoughtful and practical guide to therapist and clinical supervisor alike, extending beyond the realm of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy to other treatment modalities as well....It serves as a compilation of previously scattered studies on the impact of pregnancy, additionally presenting the results of an unpublished longitudinal study by Fenster. Throughout the book's 11 chapters, a range of issues is covered, from theoretical discussions of how pregnancy elicits specific transference and countertransference themes to the nuts-and-bolts issues of accepting or not accepting gifts after the baby's birth and fielding often intrusive questions by the patient."

- Ira J. Schaer, Contemporary Psychology

"As a pregnant therapist and as a supervisor of pregnant clinicians, I have experienced many of the issues detailed by the authors. I have shared literature, experience, and impressions in a somewhat haphazard fashion with my pregnant therapist colleagues. This book brings all the relevant literature together and adds new directions to the extant material. I commend the authors for an impressive, creative, and much-needed volume."

- Elissa P. Benedek, Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
