Pushing further the psychotherapy integration envelope.

Golan Shahar, Moran Schiller

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Arts/Article review


Reviews the book, Cyclical Psychodynamics and the Contextual Self: The Inner World, the Intimate World, and the World of Culture and Society by Paul Wachtel (see record [rid]2014-16201-000[/rid]). This book is yet another outstanding contribution by one of the psychotherapy integration movement’s earliest and finest proponents. A successful approach to integrative-psychotherapeutic thinking, it succinctly summarizes and organizes the author’s previous work on the theory of cyclical psychodynamics. More than a mere summary, however, it locates this theory within a broader context. This empirically more accurate and clinically useful intellectual framework attests to the socially nested nature of human development, personality, psychopathology, and the therapeutic process.
