Self psychology: an introduction
This comprehensive, introductory text makes the concepts of self psychology accessible for both students and clinicians. Beginning with an overview of the development of Kohut's ideas, particularly those on narcissism and narcissistic development, the author lucidly explains self object concept and why it is at the core of the self psychological vision of human experience. The book also covers how self psychology conceives of psychological growth, therapeutic action, and psychopathology and offers valuable guidance for the clinician who puts self psychological treatment into practice.
