Review by:
Jerome D. Oremland, M.D.

Dr. Slakter's editing of the June 1984 Proceedings of the Regional Council Conference of the Psychoanalytic Societies of Greater New York held in Princeton provides a chronicle of an exemplary theoretical and clinical discussion of a topic of enormous importance.

The book is constructed of three parts. "Countertransference Reactions," presumably by Slakter, is an organizing and orienting presentation. "Recent Interpretations of Countertransference" is comprised of eight papers drafted by outstanding theoreticians and clinicians, all of which have been published elsewhere. It is unclear if all of the authors were present at the Proceedings or if some of the papers were used collaboratively for discussion. "Questioning Countertransference," organized by topics rather than specific papers, attempts to capture the discussion.

In the initial chapters, "The Question of Countertransference" and "The History of the Concept," Slakter provides a valuable historical overview.
