Reviews and Endorsements

‘With its impressive wealth of clinical observations and the accuracy of its methodology, this book offers a magnificent response to many doubts raised by the opponents of psychoanalysis. Clinical observation, enhanced and explored in depth, gives an idea of how much progress psychoanalysis has made in reflecting on its own method and transformational outcomes.’
— Stefano Bolognini, President of the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA)

‘This book is an impressive achievement as it shows a contemporary, well-grounded, methodological approach to clinical observation, which is at the very core of the development of psychoanalysis. Its authors are among the most skilled analysts of today, both as clinicians and researchers. I am sure the readers will be rewarded with a stimulating journey throughout one of the most fascinating areas of contemporary psychoanalysis.’
— Cláudio Laks Eizirik, past President of the IPA and Professor of Psychiatry at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil

‘This remarkable book addresses in new and original ways the challenges of psychoanalytic research and communication amongst colleagues: how to reflect systematically and collaboratively about, and be accountable for, the private and individualised work in each clinical dyad. Here, Marina Altmann de Litvan and her colleagues bring a creative approach to collaborative, systematic research and discussion about individual treatments. Time for Change gives new meaning to psychoanalytic research and collegiality and solves one of our most challenging professional dilemmas.’
— Nancy J. Chodorow, PhD, Training and Supervising Analyst at Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute Lecturer at Cambridge Health Alliance, Harvard Medical School

‘The systematic study of psychoanalytic clinical observations and their epistemological significance is about one hundred years overdue. This groundbreaking volume summarises not just what we can learn from clinical observation but, far more importantly, how. This book is an essential training and scientific tool for our time.’
- Peter Fonagy, PhD, FMedSci, FBA, OBE, Professor of Psychoanalysis and Head of the Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London
