Reviews

"The Art of Holding in Therapy invites aspiring and seasoned perinatal psychotherapists alike to pull up a chair, settle in, and experience Karen Kleiman's wit, unflinching honesty, and endless wisdom as she teaches the reader both the `why' and the `how-to' of this essential cornerstone of psychotherapeutic treatment. This is guaranteed to be a book you'll take off your shelf again and again."-Margaret Howard, PhD, professor of psychiatry and human behavior (clinical) and medicine (clinical),Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University; division director, Women's Behavioral Health, Women & Infants Hospital


"Karen Kleiman has done it again! She has written another great book to help clinicians use the technique of holding in a therapeutic relationship with postpartum women. Her previous books-Therapy and the Postpartum Woman: Notes on Healing Postpartum Depression and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Perinatal Distress-are extremely relevant and helpful to a therapist working with pregnant and postpartum women. Her new book, The Art of Holding in Therapy: An Essential Intervention for Postpartum Depression and Anxiety, is another great addition to your library and learning."-Birdie Gunyon Meyer, MA, RN, past president, certification director, postpartum support international coordinator, Perinatal Mood Disorders Program, Indiana University Health
