Book Details

Reviews and Endorsements

'This is a pioneering book, first in its study of the power of our brothers and sisters to shape our identities and personalities, and second, in the successful use of video conferencing to contain the intense feelings evoked in all close observers of young infants. The observations themselves make a gripping read. It is vital reading for everyone concerned with the developments of small children.'
- Anne Alvarez, PhD, MACP, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist

'Remarkable for its breadth and depth, Intimate Transformations is a vivid demonstration of infant observation and its value for the study of human development, psychotherapy practice, education, and institutional consultation. Intimate Transformations immerses therapists in the world of early experience and unconscious fantasy and brings us face to face with the precious resource of our own inner world. The contributors' detailed descriptions are important reading for therapists, parents and educators. They plunge therapists deep into a discussion of the primitive fantasies that underlie the distress of adult patients. they give parents more than a glimpse of subtleties that escape their attention when they are on the front line raising their own children.'
- Jill Savege Scharff M.D., M.R.C. Psych, Co-Director International Psychotherapy Institute Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Georgetown University, Washington DC, Teaching Analyst, Washington Psychoanalytic Institute
