Needed Relationships and Psychoanalytic Healing by Steven Stern download in iPad, ePub, pdf

He practices in Portland, Maine with specializations in psychoanalysis, psychodynamic psychotherapy, couples therapy, and clinical supervision.

One characteristic of clinical work done in this mode is that many of the things we actually say and do with our patients do not fall neatly into established categories of analyst participation.

And in his clinical vignettes, not only does each of his patients come achingly alive in her individuality and suffering, but so too does Steven Stern come alive as the struggling psychoanalyst. Stern will offer clinical examples to illustrate his general approach and some of the specific principles that emerge from it.

The books in the series are not expected to advance any particular theoretical agenda, although to this date most have been written by analysts from the Interpersonal and Relational orientations.
