The Annual of Psychoanalysis. XVIII, 1990: Toward a Clarification of the Transitional Object and Selfobject Concepts in the Treatment of the Borderline Patient. Steven H. Cooper and Gerald Adler. Pp. 133-152.

M. Philip Luber

This is an attempt to demonstrate the usefulness of two different and sometimes overlapping concepts, those of the transitional object and the selfobject, in the treatment of adult borderline patients. The discussion of the theoretical issues does not explicate the jargon that is repeatedly employed, and the clinical vignettes are too brief to be convincing, but the paper is useful in demonstrating how analysts struggle to apply developmental concepts from different psychoanalytic "schools" to the treatment of adult patients.
