Reviews and Endorsements

‘Dr Mitrani continues her contributions as a passionate and enriching source advancing the progress of psychoanalysis. Her profound and movingly written clinical reports enlarge appreciation of developmental depths, ever rooting analytic theory in clinical experience. Extending the thinking of earlier pioneers such as Klein, Bion, Bick, and Tustin, she shows how experience of patients with elemental difficulties advances understanding of very early conflictual issues and of clinical technique in a way that applies to all psychoanalytic patients. And she does it all in writing that is a delight to read.’
— Warren S. Poland, M.D., recipient of the Sigourney Award, and author of Melting the Darkness

‘Dr Mitrani’s book provides that rare opportunity to listen in on psychoanalytic thinking and practice at its most exquisitely sensitive to the inner life of both patient and analyst as they attempt to talk with one another about the most fundamental truths of the patient’s experience. The book builds upon the work of Freud, Klein, Bion, and Tustin, but goes well beyond that body of work to offer a conception of analytic theory and technique that is uniquely Mitrani’s. It is a pleasure to learn from this very fine teacher.’
— Thomas H. Ogden, psychoanalyst, and author of This Art of Psychoanalysis and Projective Identification and Psychotherapeutic Technique
