David E. Scharff is a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in adult and child psychiatry, as well as a former president of AASECT. He is the author of The Sexual Relationship and co-author of Between Two Worlds: The Transition from School to Work. Jill Savege Scharff is a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in adult and child psychiatry. She is the editor of Foundations of Object Relations Family Therapy.
This book gives individual psychotherapists a way of using dynamic listening and interpreting when working with couples and families, and it offers family therapists the powerful tools of psychoanalysis to deepen their understanding and skills.
— Samuel Slipp, M.D.
In Object Relations Family Therapy, David and Jill Scharff offer the most in-depth and thoughtful exploration of the relevance of modern psychoanalytic theory to family therapy to be found to date. . . . Recently the field is showing a reawakened interest in the psychodynamics of family relationships, and the Scharffs' book heralds this remarriage of concern with the inner and outer lives of people. I believe that he publication of this book is a significant event; it will become a modern classic.
