Reviews and Endorsements

'Gilda de Simone has managed to pack into six agile chapters the whole of the vital part of psychoanalytic work that is the theory and technique of the conclusion of analysis. That she can do this with depth and elegance reflects her long career as a psychoanalyst and her specific interest in the subject over many years.

'These few...words are certainly not enough to do justice to the richness of this work; every time we go back over it, we find new facets of the problems, a wealth of new arguments, and important suggestions for research. This book is destined to take its place among the basic texts on the subject of the conclusion of analysis, besides being a brilliant example of psychoanalytic writing.'
- Giuseppe Di Chiara

'This brief, clear, precise and profound book, beyond dealing with the theoretical and technical questions concerning the termination of analysis, gives a picture of the particular nature of the psychoanalytic cure in relation to the therapies that have come forth from psychoanalytic roots...Gilda de Simone makes the relational model which she prefers work in a creative way. She supports her theoretical reflection with a rich clinical experience...[her] book convinces the reader of the importance of psychic growth and of a deepening knowledge of the internal world which the analytic cure aims to achieve by virtue of its time-bound nature.'
- Janine Chasseguet-Smirgel, from her Foreword
