Self in Relationships Summary


Self in Relationships: Perspectives on Family Therapy from Developmental Psychology by Astri Johnsen

Inspired by Daniel Stern's work on self-development, the authors suggest that by combining systemic therapy with a psychoanalytical aspect, family therapy can reach new depths. They argue that this will enrich our understanding of the relationships beween parents and children, and between siblings. There have been changes within psychoanalysis and family therapy which we believe can enrich both these theoretical fields. The idea is not to integrate but rather to bring about a mutual curiosity in these two areas, which may result in dialogues with each other and create reservoirs for ideas and practices which have been found to be useful.

Self in Relationships Reviews


'In summary this book brings together philosophy, psychology and clinical practice and lets them interact with clarity and a growing sense of integration. This is done in such a manner that the book should have almost equal value for family therapy (where it started), psychoanalysis (where it also found inspiration), and, in fact, for any form of psychotherapy that deals with subjective experience, relatedness, and narrativity. It is a book that alters the vision and reorients the position with regard to the main issues we encounter in both theory and practice.'- Daniel Stern, from the Foreword
