Learning from mistakes: Beyond dogma in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy By Patrick Casement New York, London: Guilford Press. 2002. 150 pp.

Review by:
Anthony Bass

In this book, Patrick Casement continues to expand on themes which were at the heart of his earlier volumes on learning from patients (1985, 1990). In the latter two volumes, Casement took as his subject his personal journey in becoming a psychoanalyst, emphasizing the complex and highly specialized learning process involved, the ways in which his patients informed and guided his progress along the way, and his unremitting efforts to learn to listen receptively in clinical encounters.

Relying on a variety of closely detailed clinical vignettes and personal reflections, Casement invited his reader to share in his struggle to become a psychoanalyst, striving to listen to his patients in the radically open, deeply personal yet highly disciplined way that characterizes psychoanalytic listening at its best.
