Editorial Reviews

Review

'Judith Mitrani's latest work beautifully illuminates some incompletely explored areas of psychoanalytic thinking... Throughout this work we become impressed with the presence of a versatile and innovative observer, thinker, clinician, and integrator with an unusual range of knowledge. Dr Mitrani's is a new, valuable, and most welcome voice in psychoanalysis.' - James S. Grotstein, North American Vice President, International Psychoanalytical Association

'Her clinical approach is to search for the earliest trauma - postulated around containment and intrauterine and skin-to-skin organization of experience - and she will link them to the immediacy of intense clinical (that is, transferential and countertransferential) states with a conceptual language that is commensurate to that suffering. And here Mitrani doesn't flinch; she takes on the "cascading breakdown- in both analyst
and analysand .. in the face of extreme emotional turbulence".'
- Alfred Margulies, JAPA vol 50 No 3, 2002

'The overriding quality of this book is its transparency, its lucid quality of discourse about the author's work, and the clear presentation of the clinical process she sets going. This leaves the reader always knowing exactly where he/she is with the author's thinking, and in a position to feel oneself there in the room with the analyst and her patients.' - R.D. Hinshelwood, IJPA 2002

Mitrani offers us an extraordinary view of an intensely gifted clinician, working at the very edge of what can be felt and thought analytically, As such, this book is remarkable - George Pidgeon, from The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy, (Vol 7, No 3) Autumn 2007
