    David W. Krueger illustrates a novel synthesis of fundamental psychodynamic principles with evolving advances in developmental, self, neuropsychological, and attachment theories. Focusing on action symptoms, self object experiences, gender issues, embodiment, somatic symptoms, affect regulation, and ego states, the theoretical innovations are illustrated by vivid case material. He introduces treatment inroads enabling clinicians to hear and articulate arcane messages spoken in metaphor, actualized in symptoms, and encrypted in the body. A fresh conceptualization from an original thinker, Integrating Body Self and Psychological Self broadens our understanding of the mind and body interplay in the clinical exchange.
