Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(4), 335–336. Reviews the book, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy edited by George D. Goldman and Donald S. Milman (1978). This volume is offered as a textbook, but it reads more like the transcript of a series of lectures that were given to an introductory course. The book consists of nine chapters, a historical overview, one on each of the three phases of therapy, one on resistance, on transference, on countertransference, on dreams, and on crises. This book's unevenness is conspicuous and debilitating. This book provides a well-organized series of lecture topics along with some good lecture fragments and potentially useful clinical vignettes, and insofar as it is slim and concise-may be of some help to a teacher who is preparing an introductory course on psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
