"This superbly executed work is as courageous as it is timely. At last psychoanalytically informed psychotherapy is being recommended and justified for the treatment of psychotic patients - over and above - and often instead of - psychopharmacology! This work is recommended for all mental health workers but particularly for psychiatric residents and psychologists in training." - James Grotstein M.D. Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA and Training and Supervising Analyst at the Psychoanalytic Center of California and The New Center for Psychoanalysis, Los Angeles, USA "This book will surely be an interesting read for experienced clinicians to better understand the therapeutic effect of psychodynamic psychotherapy in some disturbed patients." -- Dr Sherry Kit Wa Chan, Psychological Medicine, 40, 2010
