Borderline Psychopathology and its Treatment. Gerald Adler. New York: Jason Aronson, 1985, xv + 255 pp.

Review by:
Janet Schumacher Finell

Gerald Adler's book on the borderline condition is very appealing and engaging. His down-to-earth approach covers important aspects of work with the borderline patient including developmental issues, the working alliance, regression, the uses and misuses of confrontation, and the idealizing and the devaluating transference. Adler draws on different theorists, including Kohut, Winnicott, Balint, and Kernberg, to explain etiology and treatment.
