"I would recommend The Shattered Self wholeheartedly for its cogent summary of self psychology and developmental theory, as a treatise of trauma and its impact, and as a clinical manual with case illustrations of the treatment of trauma in patients regardless of their diagnostic configuration. I predict it will substantially alter your view of an approach to individuals who have experienced any of a broad range of traumas."

- David Kreuger, M.D., Contemporary Psychology

"In three in-depth case studies, the authors demonstrate how psychoanalytic therapy informed by self-psychology theory can overcome the effects of trauma through the transformation of shattered fantasies in the intersubjective matrix of the transference-countertransference neurosis. In addition to being a record of a research project integrating clinical data from different types of trauma, this book is also an important contribution to the knowledge about PTSD. This well-written volume is recommended for all mental health professionals who are interested in either the psychoanalytic theory of trauma or the therapy of traumatic reactions; it will be valued for proposing an impressive new theory for trauma."

- Theo L. Dorpat, The Psychoanalytic Review

"This book is a major contribution to the understanding and treatment of PTSD."
