In a time of increasing Balkanization and narrowing of psychoanalysis, Helen Gediman’s work offers a richly textured, integrative perspective. This volume covers a multitude of topics, demonstrating Dr. Gediman’s broad and deep experience. Most striking is how her unflagging theoretical curiosity and thoughtful simultaneous engagement with her patients comes across. Since the papers in this book span 50 years, we can also share in her responses to changes and evolution in the field. It is a treat to revisit relatively understudied areas Dr. Gediman has brought into their rightful prominence in our understanding, such as lying and imposture, and the role of multiple relationships in training. Both dipping in and studying this whole book will richly reward the reader.
