Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1321–1322. Reviews the book, Refinding the Object and Reclaiming the Self by David E. Scharff (see record 1993-97016-000). This book offers us a clinically rich and remarkably jargon-free object relations perspective on how each of us develops dynamic internalized relationships between self and other. This volume is a welcome addition to the clinician's bookshelf; it illustrates an important aspect of object relational thinking that is immensely personal and enlivening for individual psychotherapy as well as family, marital, sex, and group treatment modalities.
