"One hundred years after Freud and Breuer initiated the saga of psychoanalytic technique, Lichtenberg, Lachmann, and Fosshage have written he most up-to-date, comprehensive, and readable guide to the practical clinical management of the therapeutic exchange. Theoretical sophistication and clinical experience, combined with the wisdom gained from decades of active teaching, research, and therapy, allow the authors to choose just the right amalgam of time-tested techniques and contemporary insights. The Clinical Exchange will stand as a landmark in the development of technique."

- Ernest S. Wolf, M.D., Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis

"Building on their synthesis of developmental research, their innovative conceptualization of the five motivational systems, and their subsequent technical suggestions regarding 'model scenes,' Lichtenberg, Lachmann, and Fosshage have written an exciting and broad-ranging book on technique. It should inspire th neophyte, enhance the work of the seasoned practitioner, and challenge the assumptions of all those who study the clinical exchange."

- Jack Novick, Ph.D., and Kery Kelly Novick, Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute

"This is Greenson in a different key, a primer of psychoanalytic technique from the perspective of self psychology and infant observation, with so much process material from a single analysis that you not only see why the analyst does what he does, but can compare his inferences with your own, no matter what your clinical orientation. The format is so effective that by the end you feel as if you have had several years of supervision with the authors. The Clinical Exchange provides as generous a sample of the analyst's work as systematically presented as any book on technique that I know."

- Henry F. Smith, M.D., Psychoanalytic Institute of New England, East
