Reviews

"As a psychiatrist, who specializes in clinical psychopharmacology and the neuropsychiatric exploration of both the functioning and malfunctioning of the brain, I found Ulman and Paul's The Self Psychology of Addiction and Its Treatment a truly groundbreaking work." - Francis Mas, M.D., DFAPA, Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, New York University Medical School

"...a tour de force in elucidating our understanding of the five major forms of addiction. This volume is an important benchmark of our significant theoretical and clinical knowledge of addiction, written by two mature clinicians and scholars with extensive relevant clinical as well as personal experience. I believe that it will serve as a major resource for clinicians who work with a variety of addicts, as well as with the many patients who present with addiction issues as part of their underlying psychopathology." - Gerald Adler, M.D., Training and Supervising Analyst, Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute , USA

"An important book on addiction. Ulman and Paul show how the addictive person becomes dependent on megalomaniac fantasies and illusions, in effect becoming addicted to his or her own mind as well as behavior. A book packed with knowledge and first-hand experience." - Michael Eigen, Ph.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology, New York University ostdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis; Senior Member, National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis
