Stephen Goldbart, Ph.D., and David Wallin, Ph.D., are psychologists who practice and teach psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the Marin Psychotherapy Institute in Mill Valley, California, and the Solano Center in Albany, California.
For thousands of years love was compared to the sickness which only one doctor-the beloved-can cure. Drs. Goldbart and Walling see love as a journey and have provided a map where the danger points on this journey are brightly illuminated. I believe that their warnings are on the mark and lovers attempting the journey as well as professionals dealing with love will profit from this book. -- Martin S. Bergmann, Ph.D., New York University, author of The Anatomy of Loving Do we really need another book on love? For me, the answer is: Yes, if that book is Mapping the Terrain of the Heart. Goldbart and Wallin identify six capacities necessary for participation in a passionate, tender, and enduring couple relationship. They provide compelling and readable case illustrations, showing how success or mismatch occurs with respect to each capacity. Mapping the Terrain of the Heart presents an analysis of what makes or breaks love that will interest not only mental-health professionals, but anyone who has ever tried to find and stay with a significant other. -- Owen Renik, M.D., editor-in-chief, Psychoanalytic Quarterly I have given this book to dozens of my friends. Its extraordinary combination of hard-won psychoanalytic insight, clarity of writing, and heartful patience with the human condition make Mapping the Terrain of the Heart the most useful book I know of for understanding the challenges of romantic relationships. -- Richard Tarnas, author of The Passion of the Western Mind
