Abstract

Reviews the book, Awakening the Dreamer: Clinical Journeys by Philip M. Bromberg (see record 2006-08993-000) as an original, beautifully written book that introduces the reader into some of the latest techniques of psychotherapy, particularly in the light of current understanding of self-states and dissociation. It is among the forerunners of a new type of psychotherapeutic theory and practice that is gradually replacing classical psychoanalysis. Unfortunately, the book is also full of obtuse wording and quite difficult to read. As a classical analyst, the reviewer does not always agree with Bromberg's conclusions, but she never fails to find them fascinating. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
