Review by:
Alex H. Kaplan, M.D.

Between Analyst and Patient is the outcome of the First Scientific Symposium, sponsored by the Association for Psychoanalytic Medicine in March of 1981. All but two of the papers, by Joyce McDougall and Robert S. Liebert, were presented at the Symposium. Some of the contributions were initially published elsewhere (J. Gedo, O. F. Kernberg, E. S. Person, M. Viederman). The Symposium was planned to evaluate the significance of countertransference and transference in three specific areas which the Editor, Helen C. Meyers, felt had not been sufficiently explored: analysis of difficult character disorders, analytic brief psychotherapy, and work with and by women. As Dr. Meyers whimsically but so aptly indicates, the early psychoanalyses were in the main "brief psychotherapy of difficult character disorders in women," so even this volume follows the lead of Freud.
