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:

"St. Clair has done a fine job of highlighting the evolution of psychoanalytic thought from classical Freudian to Object Relations and Self Psychology theories, and presenting complex material in a very palatable fashion."

"I would say it's a good clear introduction to the various object relations and self psychology approaches...and a good starting point for students beginning their masters level counseling program."
