Reviews and Endorsements

‘The reader enters the world of Mutual Impact as one does a new analysis – with an agenda of curiosity that is rich but only suggestive of the layers of new meanings that await us. We learn a great deal about many areas of the human condition – from Lear to Bartleby, from Ahab to Philip Roth. I discovered fresh insights on triangularity and the life-enhancing potential of the analyst’s passionate embrace of presence and absence. But these are as the manifest content of a dream – engaging and certainly worthwhile but only a tease for what the interested reader can access for their personal growth. The fortunate student of Mutual Impact gets to meet Joachim Kuchenhoff, a dear colleague, not previously translated into English. Allow yourself to slowly get to know the man behind this work. Don’t rush. You will likely smile as I did in feeling his deep scholarship that is leavened by his soft humanity. You will perhaps choose as I have to keep this volume near you – to return to its rich affirmation of what a well-studied and well-lived life can offer us all.’
Harvey Schwartz, MD, training and supervising analyst at the Psychoanalytic Association of New York and the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia; host of the IPA podcast ‘Psychoanalysis On and Off the Couch’
