“This volume offers one of the best overviews of the emerging field of psychodynamic psychiatry that I've seen. Particularly impressive is the coverage of a variety of specific clinical conditions and special populations, as well as attention to ongoing research, including that of a psychobiological nature. I also appreciate the practical emphasis on improving clinical care. This book will be quite valuable as basic reading in psychiatry residency training and continuing medical education courses.”

—Juan E. Mezzich, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York City


“This is an extraordinary book! It cogently argues against throwing out the baby of viable and useful psychoanalytic ideas with the bathwater of psychoanalytic dogmatism. The conception of psychodynamic psychiatry espoused here is thoroughly modern, integrating psychoanalysis with neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and research, and adopting a positive attitude toward all aspects of psychiatry, including psychopharmacology and diagnosis. The volume includes chapters on all kinds of patients and therapeutic enterprises, each of which emphasizes the importance of following the patient’s narrative without disregarding other important elements. Advances in Psychodynamic Psychiatry is a tour de force that should be required reading throughout the field of mental health.”

—Elizabeth L. Auchincloss, MD, Vice-Chair of Education, Weill Cornell Medical College; Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst, Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research


“The editors have gathered a remarkable group of contributors to portray a new discipline influenced by long-standing ideas. The book is lively and wide ranging, with chapters by major figures in the field. It will help secure the place of psychodynamic psychiatry around the world. This is valuable reading for clinicians, researchers, and especially educators who seek to ensure the continuation of the psychodynamic approach in scarce-resource as well as high-income countries.”

—Helen Herrman, MD, MBBS, President (2017–2020), World Psychiatric Association
