Book Description

New Therapeutic Visions begins with Lachmann and Beebe's developmental perspectives on representational and selfobject transferences, followed by commentaries.  In Section II, the self-psychological approach is brought to bear on the clinical treatment of an adolescent girl, incest survivors, addictive personalities, patients exhibiting codependency, and a case of desomatization.  Section III, on applied self psychology, contains chapters on the theory of creativity; subjectivism, relativism, and realism in psychoanalysis; and quantum physics and self psychology.  The final section offers two critical review essays on major contributions to the self psychology literature by Wolf, by Bacal and Newman, and by Lichtenberg.  Stolorow's chronicle of his personal odyssey into self psychology and intersubjectivity theory rounds out volume 8 of the Progress in Self Psychology series.
