This work is an orientation to a craft of great richness and interest. The authors describe the defining elements of the accumulated working knowledge of psychodynamic psychotherapy. It revisits the raw pointedness of old questions: What is psychotherapy? What makes it meaningful? What do I say when a patient asks me how therapy works? How long will it take? How does change happen?

"Kaner and Prelinger's book is at once wise, thoughtful, humane and practical. Lucidly written, vivid with examples drawn from literature and clinical practice, THE CRAFT OF PSYCHODYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY is a rare pleasure to read. I believe it will become a classic in our field." —Katherine Dalsimer, Columbia University
"Kaner and Prelinger give an inspiring yet demystifying description of psychodynamic psychotherapy. This wonderfully orienting book is a gem for any developing clinician who seeks to understand the fundamentals of psychodynamic theory and technique. The rich clinical vignettes will make engrossing reading for clinicians, supervisors, and patients." —Suzanne Gassner
"This is the most beautiful introduction to psychotherapy I have read. It preserves the poetry of human interactions while giving a clear and thoughtful account of what actually goes on. Kaner and Prelinger are teachers, in the deepest sense, of one of the greatest crafts ever devised." —Jonathan Lear, The University of Chicago
"A remarkable achievement! A guide through the thickets of psychodynamic psychotherapy that is clear, comprehensive, subtle, penetrating, and filled with well-chosen clinical examples and technical suggestions. Not only a MUST for beginning psychotherapists, it can also help those more experienced refine their methods and deepen their empathic understanding. This book is just what is needed at a time when we are assailed by unwarranted doubts about the uses of therapy." —Dr. Roy Schafer, Author of The Analytic Attitude, Bad Feelings, Insight and Interpretation, and other works
"This book makes a quite fresh contribution to the teaching of psychotherapy. The authors' goal is, as they say, to tell the story of psychotherapy as a process and as a journey and they bring the story to life with much rich and evocative clinical material. Kaner and Prelinger skillfully introduce the new therapist to psychodynamic theory and technique in an eloquent and unique manner." —Michael Stadter, Clinical Psychologist-in-Residence, American UniversityAbout the Author:
