'This wonderful book will be of enormous value to all those that are helping families... Stern's analytic approach to each of the different kinds of therapeutic family intervention gives us all an insight and choices as we work with parents in difficulty. This is a positive, supportive guide for all professionals who work with young families.'

'In this groundbreaking book, Daniel Stern has synthesized diverse empirical, clinical, and theoretical perspectives on mother infant therapies. What emerges from this creative synthesis is a compelling and clinically useful new construct. This book is destined to become an enduring classic. I look forward to the debates and discussions it will inspire.'
- Charles H. Zeanah, M.D., Louisiana State University Medical Center

'This fascinating book builds and crosses bridges between psychoanalysis and interpersonal systems. Daniel Stern's novel ideas, derived from work with parents and infants, ultimately will inform our thinking about psychotherapy across the lifespan.'
- Lee Combrinck-Graham, M.D.

'Daniel Stern once again breaks new ground in this wonderfully perceptive book. He combines the scientist's gift for analysis with the clinician's well-developed intuition. The result is a book that transcends narrow theoretical models and challenges the reader to do the same.'
- Alicia F. Lieberman, PhD., University of California, San Francisco

'Daniel Stern's earlier book The Interpersonal World of the Infant was a classic, and I predict that this book will be another.'
- Ethel Person, M.d., Columbia University
