Turning Points in Dynamic Psychotherapy Reviews


''As I have come to expect from Salman Akhtar, this is a work of art from a master therapist, as well as an excellent practical introduction to several factors that affect the outcome of dynamic psychotherapy. The issues are discussed with graphic vignettes, and a concisely summarised literature background, yet with a personal cast that makes even mundane matters come alive. I would recommend this very easy to read book to experienced therapists as well as beginners, and I would do so with a rare sense of having read a classic.'- Stuart Twemlow, MD, psychiatrist at The Menninger Clinic in Houston'Salman Akhtar had a wonderful idea for a book when he thought of this one, and he has carried it off well. Eminently practical, richly illustrated, and providing enough clinical theory to set the contexts meaningfully, this book is focused on five significant and potentially problematic aspects of the psychotherapeutic encounter. The choices in this focus will immediately arouse the interest of any clinician, and Akhtar's choice to focus permits him, in his words, to favor depth over breadth in his clinical examination. He does this successfully and wisely. The book provides an excellent read for beginners, to whom itis directed, but also for teachers and peer group supervisions, where it will provide much to learn from and much to argue about. A good idea and a good job done!'- Fred Pine, professor in the department of psychiatry at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
