About the Author

Carol W. Berman, M.D., is a clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at N.Y.U. Langone Medical Center. This is Dr. Berman's fourth book. She is also the author of 100 Questions and Answers About Panic Disorder, Personality Disorders, and Surviving Dementia: A Clinical and Personal Perspective.


"The creator, writer, and psychiatrist, Carol Berman has done it yet again. Written in such a creative yet practical way, this book is a must for any practitioner who is looking to help patients or themselves understand and move past negativity. The clinical case examples are so varied in terms of the pathologies presented, yet spot on. Her easily broken-down tables and charts make this the best guide for those who are looking to build clinical strategies on a tight schedule. Can't wait to use these strategies with my patients!"
Asha D. Martin, MD, N.Y.U. Langone Medical Center

"Dr. Carol Berman breathes new life into the old psychoanalytic term, the negative introject. Negative introjects are unconscious, self-defeating thoughts that often stem from disturbing messages received in childhood, which interfere with mental health, happiness, and success. Dr. Berman illustrates with colorful case reports how negative introjects underlie many common psychiatric disorders, such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, hypochondriasis, posttraumatic stress disorder, and body dysmorphic disorder. She describes ways to diminish these negative perceptions with multiple modalities, including medication and psychotherapy. The book includes tables with practical suggestions on ways to counteract negative introjects with positive ideas and behaviors, such as exercise, listening to music, interacting with pets, conversations with positive people, and meditation. Dr. Berman seamlessly blends psychoanalytic thought with behavioral psychology and psychopharmacology in a clear, straightforward manner, which only a seasoned psychiatrist with decades of clinical experience could do. This book is a must read for patients and clinicians alike!"

"What an interesting and insightful book! Dr Berman's Taming the Negative Introject is truly a cogent and a comprehensive guide to psychological defense and confronting the negative introjection in the patient. She does this with wit, wisdom, and profound sensitivity. You know she wrote this book based on her long clinical insight and her service with her patients. This is a beautifully written and organized book with a great reservoir of information and deep sensitivity and empathy for her patients. This invaluable book provides us with the information and knowledge we need to make rational and healthy choices."
