Reviews and Endorsements

"Relational psychoanalysis can accommodate the shockwaves in the world and the most intimate encounters between analyst and analysand and show how they are intertwined. This timely and elegant book is an invitation to understand the workings and theory of relational therapy at a time when issues of identity, attachment and the democratizing of psychoanalysis are at the centre of concerns in the field." - Dr. Susie Orbach, psychoanalyst and author of Fat is a Feminist Issue, The Impossibility of Sex, and Bodies.

"Steven Kuchuck's highly nuanced account offers as many questions as answers, and so stays true to the revolutionary project of replacing absolutist views of technique with recognition of the complexity that arises when we envision therapy as a meeting of minds, a co-creation in which the analyst is a full participant. [This] much-needed primer, sparkling with insight and wisdom, will be invaluable for readers within and outside the clinical field." Jessica Benjamin, Ph.D., psychoanalyst and author of Beyond Doer and Done to and The Bonds of Love.

"With clarity and insight, Steven Kuchuck sails the "relational sea change" of ideas and clinical praxis like a master navigator. Most authors concede the relation between psychoanalysis and its historical context, but few have unpacked it in order to demonstrate this interaction for today's psychoanalytic clinician. Students and educators will want to incorporate this book into their thinking and practice for its directness, candor and scholarship." - Spyros D. Orfanos, Ph.D., ABPP, Director, New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis.
