This is a well written, broad, and highly informative introduction to the field of self psychology. The text is directed toward students, counselors and therapists who may want to expand field knowledge, interested lay readers, and clients who have some awareness of relational depth psychology theories and methods. It will help the reader to have some prior understanding of object relations theory. If your therapist(s) describe their techniques as client-centered, humanistic, existential, relational (including object-relations) this is a must-read for understanding the client/therapist relationship. The student will especially appreciate the author's careful critique and inclusion of comparative theories, other contributors to the theoretical development and practice of the field, and the divergence from classical or drive-centered theories. For anyone who is interested in the study of our narcissistic traits, this is a developmentally oriented, non-pejorative, and informative resource. This text will assist the reader in a more thorough understanding of the empathic position in relationships. I would extend recommendation of this text to physicians, nurses, ministers, teachers, daycare providers(!), counselors in the addiction and behavioral fields, and those who manage human relations in various occupational fields.

It is rare to find a foundational text within the field of psychoanalysis that is comprehensive while avoiding extremes of simplicity and jargon filled complexity. I appreciated the non-apologetic approach and how the author provided just enough background information so that I could avoid additional reading I usually do to assure myself I'm not wasting my time. The additional chapters allied with the main topic are excellent. Those topics challenged and directed me to further study making this one of the best books I have ever read on a topic so near and dear to my heart, and by extension, my clients. Thank you Mr. Lessem. (Please write another book!)

This is a wonderful way to understand about Self Psychology. The writing is easy to understand and the concepts are clearly explained. I recommend this book for those interested to read about Self Psychology and of course, read all Kohut's books.

This is a very comprehensive and interesting introduction to the history and development of Self Psychology theory and practice, and its relationship to other approaches, including Object Relations, Intersubjectivity theory and Motivational systems theory.
There are very clear and useful case studies throughout the book that illuminate aspects of both theory and practice, and provide the author with an avenue for direct, reflexive descriptions of his own practice.
While the book is aimed at an audience of practitioners and students, it is very well-written, concise and clear, so as an interested lay person, I found it highly readable, insightful, and an excellent source of information, with key references to bodies of literature for further exploration.
Highly recommended.

This book is well written and in depth. As a student of psychology I was able to understand and ingest the material. I recommend it to anyone studying or practicing as a clinical psychologist.

The theory of Self Psychology itself can be a difficult concept to understand. I had to learn this theory in a short period of time and this book was a time saver! It broke down the concepts in a clear, cohesive manner without the additional mumbo jumbo psycho-jargon found in most psychodynamic books. This theory was briefly taught in my grad class, so I used this book to re-learn it and to study for my pre-doctoral Comprehensive Exams. I was able to conceptualize using Self Psychology without any problems and passed on the first try. Highly recommend!

Great!
I was extremely disappointed with this book. Although it was clearly written (the author's sentences were short and kept to the point) it was plain that the author was far from being competent in his understanding of Kohut's contribution rather than the work of 'Kohutian' authors. A case in point is his discussion of the vertical split and the horizontal split. It was clear that the author didn't know what the real difference was between disavowal and repression. Another example is the author's discussion of mirroring and idealization, he didn't distinguish between these needs as manifest in early infancy in their more primitive form (merger mirroring and idealization) and later needs for mirroring and idealization in the narrower sense. Richard Chessick's 'Psychology Of The Self And The Treatment Of Narcissism' is far better than this book, although Chessick doesn't count himself as a Kohutian his knowledge of Kohut's ideas was much more competent than this author. Alan Siegal's 'Heinz Kohut And The Psychology Of The Self' is also far better book and written by someone competent in disseminating Kohut's work.
I gave this book to Oxfam.
