Arnold Goldberg uses the questions posed by self psychology as point of entry to a thoughtful consideration of issues with which every clinician wrestles: the scientific status analysis, the relationships among its competing theories, the role of empathy in analytic method, and the place of the "self" in the analyst's explanatory strategies. Clinical chapters show how the notion of the self can provide organizing insights into little-appreciated character structures.

Reviews and Endorsements

"[Goldberg] insists that we all approach clinical material with certain values and theoretical points of view that inform and organize that clinical material. He provides arguments and asks questions that stretch our minds and help us 'search for more.' This is an excellent book for psychoanalysts who want to think about what they do."
- Arthur Malin, M.D., Psychoanalytic Quarterly

"[Goldberg] invites us to wrestle with such complex clinical issues as the role of apology in psychoanalysis and the process of posttermination and challenges us to take a new look at perhaps familiar vistas."
- Karen R. Strupp, Contemporary Psychology
