Reviews and Endorsements

‘An extraordinary combination of comprehensiveness, scope, and lucid theoretical underpinning with the most luminous clinical illustrations. There is little doubt that this promises to be the definitive work on psychoanalytic technique. There is fluidity and flexibility throughout which preclude any possibility of finding in this book a set of rules, or of accusing the author of rigidity or “orthodoxy”.’
Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association


‘In this volume Greenson concentrates on the themes of resistance and transference. He says, and quite correctly, that “it is impossible to talk intelligibly in depth and in detail about any technical problem” without an adequate understanding of these topics. The treatment of these problems is clearer and more complete than any I have seen. Clinical examples are given in abundance. These are germane and remarkably candid.’
Contemporary Psychology


‘Bids fair to become the classic text on the subject. Even experienced analysts can learn much from his tempered discussions and sharp clinical examples.’

Psychiatric Quarterly

‘Seldom in psychoanalytic literature does one run across a book that is written with such clarity of style, freedom from jargon, or careful welding of practical treatment problems with underlying theory.’
Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
