"Containing insights into the treatment process for therapists of all theoretical persuasions, Countertransference in the Treatment of PTSD is bound to be the definitive work on this topic for a generation of therapists. Filled with theoretical models and clinical case descriptions, this book is at once useful for the most experienced and senior therapist while being indispensable for the novice. This assemblage of therapists and clinicians have shared with us their collective wisdom from literally centuries worth of clinical experience. We are indebted to them for this gift." --Terence M. Keane, Ph.D., Director, National Center for PTSD-Boston; Chief, Psychology Service, Boston VA Medical Center; Tufts University School of Medicine

"Questions of countertransference are nowhere more painful, or more important, than in work with victims of extreme trauma. Wilson and Lindy bring their own vast experience in this area, as well as that of a number of accomplished colleagues, to produce a volume of extraordinary value. The writing throughout combines rigor and compassion. Therapist and students of trauma in general will find in this book models for sensitive clinical practice informed by skillfully woven theory." --Robert Jay Lifton, M.D., Author of The Protean Self, The Nazi Doctors, and The Broken Connection "Every therapist who treats the survivor of trauma, every clinician who encounters cruelty, every scholar who studies stress syndromes will value this volume from Wilson and Lindy. Here are assembled the personal revelations, the organizing concepts, the dilemmas and insights of experts--the world leaders of the modern age of traumatic stress studies. They ask us to examine ourselves as we engage in the healing process and they make the self-scrutiny interesting." --Frank M. Ochberg, M.D., Adjunct Professor, Psychiatry, Criminal Justice; Journalism, Michigan State University "Particularly useful for gaining an appreciation of the unique stresses on the professional's empathic relationship with traumatized individuals. The book could easily serve as a text for teaching students and as a stimulus for ongoing case supervision and peer group discussion.... There is not a chapter here that I did not learn something from. I would highly recommend it to those doing psychotherapy or working in any other way with traumatized individuals." --Linda Gay Peterson, M.D.
