- Metapsychology Online Reviews
“[A] persuasive argument for delving into the unconscious, so that clients can make enduring change. By citing recent research, developing cohesive theories, and providing exemplary cases, this book lights up the darkest recesses of the unconscious to improve our therapeutic perception. . . . [A] compelling update of modern psychodynamic psychotherapy. We recommend it to anyone interested in the unconscious, psychoanalysis, and interpersonal neurobiology.”
- The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter
“Ginot’s brilliantly researched book comes from a place of genuine sincerity. Her goal is to shed light upon an otherwise dark arena of the brain/mind. Her method of revelation comes not from laboratory trials, but from a reputable career of working with clients and experiencing, through those sessions, how the human mind works within its varied environments. . . . [T]his is a book worth referring to time and again as a guide for turning theory into practice.”
“Ginot’s approach to the unconscious goes beyond the techniques of most clinicians: by integrating modern research, Ginot unearths connections between biology and the unconscious patterns often explored in psychoanalysis. . . . By integrating neuroscience with the unconscious, Ginot opens the door to her fellow clinicians, inviting them to take their therapy to the next level. . . . [I]deal for anyone involved in therapeutic work.”

“Sigmund Freud began his career as a neurologist and neuroanatomist, and he remained convinced throughout his life that one day psychoanalysis would reconnect with neuroscience. The Neuropsychology of the Unconscious fulfills his prediction, exploring the inner dynamics of psychology in the light of modern neuroscience. By providing a high-level interdisciplinary integration, this readable and engaging book furthers the understanding of difficult clinical problems for psychotherapists and psychoanalysts.”

He is author of three seminal volumes, Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self, Affect Dysregulation and Disorders of the Self and Affect Regulation and the Repair of the Self, as well as numerous articles and chapters. His Regulation Theory, grounded in developmental neuroscience and developmental psychoanalysis, focuses on the origin, psychopathogenesis, and psychotherapeutic treatment of the early forming subjective implicit self. His contributions appear in multiple disciplines, including developmental neuroscience, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, developmental psychology, attachment theory, trauma studies, behavioral biology, clinical psychology, and clinical social work. His groundbreaking integration of neuroscience with attachment theory has lead to his description as "the American Bowlby" and with psychoanalysis as "the world's leading expert in neuropsychoanalysis." His books have been translated into several languages, including Italian, French, German, and Turkish.

Dr. Ginot has done her homework. She has read widely and makes the neuroscientific and developmental research accessible as she weaves it into psychoanalytic understanding. Most impressive is her commitment to being both scientist and caring therapist. She shines a light on what “works” in psychoanalysis to move the patient and reduce suffering and repetition. She opens the door for psychoanalysts to be curious about the so-called alphabet therapies (AEDP, EMDR, SE, IFS, CBT, DBT) and how they can maximize flexibility in unconscious maps through mindful reflection.
This book is a joy to read. Dr. Ginot’s clinical examples from her practice highlight her findings, and her summation and integration of the current neuroscientific research is a gift to the reader.
