About the Author:

Michael St. Clair has a clinical background in individual and family therapy, as well as in teaching personality theory and supervising students in field placements. He is a Professor of Psychology at Emmanuel College, Boston. He has published in the area of object relations and also in the history of millennarian groups.

Review:

"This text is to be commended for its translation of the often obtuse writing of the original object relations theorists into clear and engaging summaries. There is just enough detail for students to grasp the major elements of the theory and yet not so much detail as to overwhelm the student with unnecessary nuances."
