In this groundbreaking volume, the authors bring us into the immediacy of the analyst's consulting room in direct confrontation with the thought disorder, delusions and hallucinations of their patients grappling with psychosis. From the early days of psychoanalysis when Freud explicated the famous Schreber case, analysts of all persuasions have brought a variety of theories to bear on the problem of schizophrenia and the other psychoses. Here, as William Butler Yeats notes, "the centre cannot hold" and any sense of self-esteem - positive feelings about oneself, a continuous sense of self in time and a functional coherence and cohesion of self - is shattered or stands in imminent danger. What makes psychoanalytic self psychology so compelling as a framework for understanding psychosis is how it links together the early recognition of narcissistic impairment in these disorders to the "experience-near" focus which is the hallmark of self psychology.

About the Author:

David A. S. Garfield

Review:

"At the end of a very moving tale of the treatment of a psychotic woman, the patient tells the therapist, 'You’ve given me my life.' The therapist, one of the authors of this book, replies, 'Thanks. It’s been a gift to both of us.' So, too, one must thank the authors of Self Psychology and Psychosis for the gift given to readers of this volume that employs the theory of self psychology to guide and to better understand the psychotherapy of psychoses." (Arnold Goldberg, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Rush Medical College; training and supervising analyst, Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis)

"This book should be firmly recommended to all teams of mental health professionals who come into contact with the more severely mentally ill, especially those who experience psychosis. Through a number of examples, the text demonstrates clearly how substantive numbers of those who are currently readily regarded as suffering from chronic disorders, especially schizophrenia, can in fact be helped to substantially recover and live satisfying lives through modern forms of skilled psychodynamic psychotherapy. The book focuses on the damage to the self and how this can be repaired in psychosis, especially using concepts from self psychology." (Dr. Brian Martindale, International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis)

"David Garfield and Ira Steinman use a series of evocative and compelling case examples to illustrate how the principles of self psychology can be effectively applied in intensive psychotherapy with psychotic patients. Their fascinating and instructive presentation is an invaluable guide to productive clinical work with disturbed patients who too often are mistakenly judged to be beyond the reach of talking therapies." (Owen Renik, MD, former Editor, Psychoanalytic Quarterly; training and supervising analyst, San Francisco Psychoanalytic Center)

"In an era of somatic and medication treatments, David Garfield and Ira Steinman have reminded us of the importance of listening to our patients with empathy and understanding, even those patients who are psychotic and disorganized. They remind us to see our patients as whole persons. Inside this volume, you will read how these experienced authors and clinicians empathize, query, interpret, and confront the whole patient. These skilled therapists demonstrate with captivating stories how, by making them feel understood, patients can make huge advances in their recovery and healing. I highly recommend Self Psychology and Psychosis." (Renee Binder, MD, Professor and Director, Psychiatry and Law Program, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco)
