About the Author

Peter Buirski, Ph.D. is Dean of the Graduate School of Professional Psychology at the University of Denver. He is the co-author of Making Sense Together: The Intersubjective Approach to Psychotherapy and author of Practicing Intersubjectively. Maintaining a private practice in Denver, he also holds the position of Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and is on the faculty of the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis. Amanda Kottler, M.A., previously an academic at the University of Cape Town, is currently in private practice in Cape Town, South Africa. She is a co-editor of Culture, Power & Difference: Discourse Analysis in South Africa and has written about the dilemmas facing progressive psychologists working within the multiple and contradictory discourses of race and identity in South Africa.


Peter Buirski and Amanda Kottler have taken up the challenge of updating the almost 40 years of creative play with Heinz Kohut's groundbreaking concepts of self, empathy, and self-object transferences. Through well-chosen contributors, the editors skillfully balance advances in theory with an increasing sophistication in applying the theories to clinical practice with individuals, groups, and in supervision. The cumulative result provides a stimulating entry into the dynamic thinking of a group of interrelated but very individualistic self psychologists. -- Joseph D. Lichtenberg, M.D., editor-in-chief, Psychoanalytic Inquiry; author, Craft and Spirit: A Guide to the Exploratory Psychotherapies
Offering a wide range of subjects and authors who are contributing to the evolution of theory and clinical practice of contemporary self psychology, this book is replete with clinical applications of theoretical innovation to patients of all ages, groups, and families. The detailed clinical work is especially edifying and will bring the reader in on current "hot topics"-for example, systems theory, attachment theory, implicit/explicit, improvisation, and enactment-in the further development of self psychology and contemporary psychoanalysis. -- James L. Fosshage, Ph.D., president, The International Association for Psychoanalytic Self Psychology; co-author (with Joseph Lichtenberg and Frank Lachma
The eminently practical contributions gathered in this volume expand the horizons of self psychology to encompass a broad range of contemporary psychoanalytic and interdisciplinary perspectives and therapeutic modalities. Readers will be richly rewarded. -- Robert D. Stolorow, Ph.D., author, Trauma and Human Existence
