"Not only is more more empirical research of this relationship needed, but, as the authors of the different entries demonstrate, a more empathic understanding of the quality of this relationship is required as well. This well-conceived and well-executed handbook provides some means for achieving this understanding... I recommend this volume because it offers direction for such research." --JOURNAL OF CLINICAL PSYCHIATRY, October 2000
