Reviews and Awards
"In recent years, professional psychology has increasingly moved to recognize, define, and review the various specialties, and in light of this movement, Specialty Competencies in Psychoanalysis in Psychology is an important contribution highlighting the conceptual basis, scientific foundations, and core knowledge areas of psychoanalytic psychology. Covering assessment, intervention, supervision, education, professional identity, ethics, and individual and cultural diversity, this volume will be an informative text for students and educators."--Lewis Aron, PhD, Director, New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis
"Partisan controversy rages among psychoanalytic clinicians about how best to ensure that practitioners demonstrate that they have acquired the breadth and nuance of knowledge and skill necessary to function effectively as a thoughtful agent of psychological change. In this volume, Specialty Competencies in Psychoanalysis in Psychology, Morris and her colleagues fully celebrate the diversity of contemporary psychoanalytic practice. By carefully examining the components and competencies that are required to create and sustain therapeutic change, Morris's book provides a working framework for clinicians, supervisors, and students across different psychoanalytic traditions to engage the most important questions about psychoanalytic practice today." --Kimberlyn Leary, Ph.D., MPA, Harvard Medical School/Cambridge Health Alliance
"Written by experts in the field, this book provides the practical guidelines that one needs to become proficient in the practice of psychoanalysis. It is a good addition to the libraries of students as well as seasoned clinicians." --Gary B Kaniuk, Doody's Health Sciences Book Review
"The significance of this book goes far beyond its outstanding contents. Existing as it does, within a multiple volume series of books delineating core competencies in PSYCHOLOGY, this volume serves to support the legitimacy of psychoanalysis as a recognized specialty within psychology. This series, developed through the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP), with its multiple recognized specialties, provides tangible evidence of our recognition within the entire field of psychology. The book, particularly directed to psychologists seeking to strengthen their background in psychoanalytic theory or treatment, delineates the functional and foundational competencies of psychoanalytic practice." -Susan C. Warshaw, Ed.D., ABPP, President, Division of Psychoanalysis, New York State Psychological Association
"While the authors focus on the requirements for competent practice of psychoanalysis by psychologists, their contribution may have a far boarder scope. It will be a useful resource for both nascent and established training programs in psychoanalysis, helping them evaluate their offerings to assure that they appropriately support the achievement of proficiency in clinical psychoanalysis by students from all mental health professions." --Sheila Hafter Gray, M.D. President, Accreditation Council for Psychoanalytic Education, Inc.
