About the Author

Danielle Knafo, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Doctoral Program, Long Island University, C. W. Post campus, and is on the faculty of the Derner Institute's Postdoctoral Program. She is the author of numerous journal articles and five books, including In Her Own Image: Women's Self-Representation in Twentieth-Century Art (Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2009) and Unconscious Fantasies and the Relational World (with Kenneth Feiner, Analytic Press, 2005), which was a Goethe Prize honoree. She maintains a private practice in Great Neck and Manhattan, NY.


"Danielle Knafo has written a compelling and enlightening book, a testimony to the depths of the creative spirit. Explorations span psychoanalysis, art, literature, and dance, with special emphasis on what art can contribute to understanding psychoanalysis as well as the reverse. Processes that go into art-making also go into psychoanalysis. She brings out dimensions of the creative unconscious that add to our appreciation of being alive." - Michael Eigen, Ph.D., author, Contact with the Depths and Faith and Transformation (both Karnac, 2011)
