Review:

"We are indebted to the authors of these stirring essays for sharing with us their particular, courageous struggles to alloy profoundly personal experiences with their deep commitment as therapists to their patients' well-being and development."

- Irwin Z. Hoffman, Ph.D., Author, Ritual and Spontaneity in the Psychoanalytic Process (Analytic Press, 2001)

"I found it an enormously moving and inspiring book. The contributors communicate cogently -- in action, by example--so much that we have been struggling to talk about in the psychoanalytic literature. They deserve our congratulations and gratitude."

- Owen Renik, M.D., San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute
