Reviews and Endorsements

Bearing Unbearable States of Mind provides clear guidance on how the analyst can encourage the patient to communicate their often intolerably painful states of mind and how to interpret these states, using them as a basis for insight and psychic change in the patient. Employing extensive and detailed clinical examples and addressing important areas of Kleinian theory, Riesenberg-Malcolm examines the problems that underlie severe pathology and shows how meaningful analytic work can take place, even with very disturbed patients. Bearing Unbearable States of Mind should be a useful and practical guide for psychoanalysts and psychotherapists and all those working in psychological settings with severely disturbed patients.
