Reviews and Endorsements

“In this unique blend of academic scholarship and clinical wisdom, Candace Orcutt compellingly describes the pioneering and seminal work of James Masterson on a spectrum of personality disorders. As the highly informative text and rich case material demonstrate, his writings were clearly ahead of their time, and thus his psychotherapeutic contributions are perhaps even more relevant today.” – Dr Allan Schore, University of California at Los Angeles and author of Right Brain Psychotherapy.

“In this remarkable book Dr. Orcutt has created a masterful synthesis of the past fifty years of the clinical field, especially relevant to the treatment of personality and major dissociative disorders. The last chapters on dissociated parts and unacknowledged trauma are brilliant.”
Daniel P. Brown, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School and senior author of Attachment Disturbances in Adults.

“Dr. Orcutt’s brilliant, creative mind is more than evident in her new book, The Unanswered Self. Her profound level of understanding of the works of Freud, Masterson, Winnicott and other psychodynamic and developmental theorists, and her deep knowledge of the impact of trauma on the developing self, stand at the heart of this book. A synthesis of these varied approaches culminates in original answers to some very old, and very deep, clinical and theoretical questions.” – Judith Pearson, Ph.D., Director, The International Masterson Institute.
