Working from Kohut's basic ideas, practicing psychoanalytic psychotherapist Lessem provides his particular reading of the theory and practice of self psychology, reflecting both the evolution of its concepts and the internal logic of their relationships to each other. He describes how Kohut's concepts developed, from a recasting of Freud's perception of narcissism to the creation of the idea of the "selfobject," examines changes in the idea of empathy as applied to self psychology, and describes how self psychology conceives of psychological growth. He then examines how psychological disturbance relates to disorders of self-experience, how the clinical process fits in terms of both theory and practice, addresses how intellectual and sociocultural factors influenced Kohut's perceptions, and analyzes intersubjectivity, motivational systems theory, and aggression. Lessem closes with examinations of the vision of self psychology and its contributions to psychoanalytic theory and practice. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
