Summary

An excellent introduction for students of psychoanalytic diagnostic thinking, this book clearly explicates the major clinically important character types and suggests how an appreciation of the patients's individual personality structure should influence the therapist's focus and style of intervention. Eschewing the dense jargon that often discourages beginning therapists, the book is engagingly written and includes numerous vignettes that bring concepts to life. Psychoanalytic Diagnosis will be of interest to psychotherapists, psychologists, and clinical therapists. It is ideal for beginning therapists and students of psychotherapy and psychology.
