About the Author

Michael Karson teaches at the Graduate School of Professional Psychology at the University of Denver. Prior to that he practiced psychotherapy and consulted in the child welfare system for 25 years in Massachusetts. He is the author of Patterns of Child Abuse: How Dysfunctional Transactions Are Replicated in Individuals, Families and the Child Welfare System and he is senior author of 16PF Interpretation in Clinical Practice: A Guide to the Fifth Edition as well as an attorney.


This concise yet clinically rich book is an insightful guide to the ever perplexing labyrinth of memory as it affects our emotional lives. Deftly, it interweaves early Freudian notions, views of Adler, Mayman, and Bruhn, and contemporary advances in the understanding of memory-related phenomena. The result is a striking elucidation of the multi-layered meaning and impact of early experience upon us. Side-by-side this theoretical intrigue exist superb technical innovations that enhance our capacity for understanding and enrich our skills as therapists! -- Salman Akhtar, MD, is professor of psychiatry at Jefferson Medical College and training and supervising analyst at the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Dr. Karson smoothly integrates psychoanalytic approaches with systems theory and behaviorism, creating a book that should be useful to anyone practicing psychotherapy. The overarching idea of basing treatment on the client's vocabulary and the client's narrative patterns is especially welcome at a time when many practitioners seek a magic bullet designed to work on everyone. Karson's sensitive handling of clinical material, presented on a realistically personal level, makes this a must-read. It is refreshing to see an approach to therapy at this moment in our professional history. -- Stephen Bloomfield, Ed.D.
