The Total Transference and the Complete Counter-Transference: The Kleinian Psychoanalytic Approach with More Disturbed Patients, by Robert Waska, Jason Aronson, Lanham, Maryland (2012) 173pp.

Review by:
Merle Molofsky, NCPsyA, LP

Robert Waska has written numerous books and articles defining, exploring, and expanding Kleinian principles and applications in psychoanalytic work. His commitment to the ideas of Melanie Klein is matched by his commitment to his clinical practice, and the people with whom he works. His clinical work is imbued with understanding, resonance, respect, and courage.

Waska's dedication to Kleinian thought is neither parochial nor exclusionary. His thinking encompasses a wide range of psychoanalytic theory. He offers his clinical work and his understanding of Kleinian theory in a broader context, embedded in a general psychoanalytic perspective, but exquisitely focused on how he uses Kleinian theory. As all gifted psychoanalysts do, he lives his passion, entering into the psychoanalytic encounter with full emotional resonance and aliveness, and full intellectual awareness.

The book is divided into 11 chapters, and is rich with case material and theoretical discussion.
