Stark’s newest book speaks not only to patients who are fundamentally schizoid (concealing their true self behind a self-protective facade) but also to patients who, in the moment, have psychically retreated because their heart has been so badly hurt. Recognizing and responding to the patient’s self-protective ego, the therapist will foster a therapeutic regression, thereby enabling the patient to relinquish denial of object need.

    It’s very useful for me to learn more deeply in psychology, but I can’t always afford to buy books. Thanks to your support, I have improved my knowledge in the field.
