Cashdan's expertise as a teacher is amply demonstrated as he outlines the steps of object relations therapy, from engagement, through identification and confrontation within the therapy relationship--those centering around issues of dependency, sexuality, power, and ingratiation.

Praise For…

A good starting place for therapists interested in a brief overview of object relations therapy, this book gives the reader, neophyte or experienced therapist, a nice theoretical framework. Basic, clear, and humane, it sparkles with interventions both poignant and powerful.
— American Journal of Psychiatry

Cashdan goes a long way to clarify a potentially confusing and complex therapeutic process. The volume should be an impetus to others in the field to explore their own approach to clients and to reevaluate the process of their therapeutic work.
— Contemporary Psychology

A valuable resource for advanced courses in psychotherapeutic concepts and for psychotherapeutic supervision. This book is a good read.
— Journal of Integrative and Eclectic Psychotherapy

What a wonderful book.
