Finding the Body in the Mind: Embodied Memories, Trauma, and Depression, by Marianne Leuzinger-Bohleber, Karnac, London, 2015, 278 pp.

Review by:
Kathryn J. Zerbe, M.D.

Clinical psychoanalysis is increasingly informed by insights derived from interdisciplinary collaboration between neuroscientists, cognitive scientists, practicing psychoanalysts, and developmental (i.e., primarily infant and attachment-based) researchers. Marianne Leuzinger-Bohleber's important and highly relevant new book summarizes and applies a vast amount of contemporary data derived from these fields to problems encountered daily by psychodynamic clinicians. Chronic depression, trauma, recovery from medical illnesses (such as post-polio syndrome), infertility, dissociation and fluid, troubled identity states are tackled by way of case histories and salient glimpses into clinician-patient interactions. Repeatedly, a sense of hopefulness emerges about psychoanalysis as an endeavor that can transform lives but must itself become concomitantly transformed by brilliantly conceived, strategically supported, humanely carried out state of the art empirical research methodologies.
