The Widening Scope of Self Psychology is a watershed in the self-psychological literature, being a contemporary reprise on several major clinical themes through which self psychology, from its inception, has articulated its challenge to traditional psychoanalytic thinking.  The volume opens with original papers on interpretation by eminent theorists in the self-psychological tradition, followed by a series of case studies and clinically grounded commentaries bearing on issues of sex and gender as they enter into analysis.  Two thoughtful reexaminations of the meaning and treatment challenges of chronic rage are followed by clinical papers that focus, respectively, on mourning, alter ego transferences, resistance to change, and pathological identification.  Applied analytic contributions and a review of Goldberg’s The Prisonhouse of Psychoanalysis round out a collection that testifies not only to the widening scope of self psychology, but to its deepening insights as well.
