'In this exciting book, a master psychoanalyst makes his innovative Field Work teaching technique available to all of us. We can, figuratively, sit outside the one-way mirror to watch Dr. Volkan treat people with neurotic, borderline, and narcissistic personalities, from start to finish, using both modern and classical psychoanalytic techniques. Not only that, but he explains what he is doing while he is doing it! Dr. Volkan actually answers the perennial questions, "What am I treating? as well as What do I say? and Why does it work? . Fascinating and extraordinarily illuminating, Psychoanalytic Technique Expanded is unique in offering a bird's-eye view of d analytic treatment for different types of disorders in the 21st century.' Jerome S. Blackman, M.D., DFAPA, FIPA, FACPsa, Training and Supervising Analyst, New York Freudian Society, Washington, D.C.; Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Eastern Virginia Medical School, Norfolk, VA; Adjunct Professor of Psychology, Virginia Wesleyan College, Norfolk, VA; Psychiatry Residency Faculty, Naval Medical Center, Portsmouth, VA; Author of 101 Defenses: How the Mind Shields Itself and Get the Diagnosis Right: Assessment and Treatment Selection for Mental Disorders. --Psychoanalysis, Psychology, Politic Psychology, Text book, Vamik Volkan

'My single observation, which restrains me from an unequivocal endorsement of this valuable, new resource, is the unmistakable implication that Dr. Volkan has a preference for an ego psychological, object relations approach to the analytic process and education. Inclusion in a textbook of multiple points of view would enhance its usefulness as an educational asset. Having a perspective that tilts toward a particular position is unavoidable but making an effort to incorporate multiple points of view strengthens a book aimed at being a teaching text. Dr. Volkan has done a creditable job of this as far as ego psychology, object relations, and a Kleinian perspective are included but a wider use of ego psychology would be helpful. Nonetheless, the clinical richness, detail, disarming self-disclosures, lucid description of terminology and definitions come together to render this a substantial addition to education. This textbook can be effectively incorporated into psychiatry and psychology training programs as well as into advanced psychotherapy training programs and beginning technique courses for psychoanalytic candidates. This book should be included in the syllabi of all of those programs and this reviewer believes the psychoanalytic community should be made widely aware of this publication.' Phil S. Lebovitz, M.D.; Faculty member at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis; Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at Rosalind Franklin University of Health Science/The Chicago Medical School; Treasurer at American College of Psychoanalysts, USA. --Psychoanalysis, Psychology, Politic Psychology, Text book, Vamik Volkan

'This book - a culmination of 40 years of experience - is one of the finest books I have read for some years. Dr. Volkan combines his deep and thorough understanding of the individual human psyche with a profound grasp of large-group psychology, a combination that marks this book as a unique contribution to our psychoanalytic literature and posits Dr. Volkan as a singular professional in our psychoanalytic landscape. Keeping a keen eye on the unconscious and on object relations, without neglecting the intersubjective dimensions of the analytic relationship, Dr. Volkan translates and implements many years of experience as a practicing psychoanalyst, supervisor and teacher in a very open, candid and accessible manner which makes this book a gift to teachers as well as students of psychoanalysis.' Michael Shoshani Rosenbaum Psy.D., Training and Supervising Analyst and Founding Chair of the Tel-Aviv Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis; Faculty member of the New York University Program for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis; Author of Dare to Be Human: A Contemporary Psychoanalytic Journey. --Psychoanalysis, Psychology, Politic Psychology, Text book, Vamik Volkan
