Self-Psychology and Diagnostic Assessment: Identifying Selfobject Functions through Psychological Testing

By Marshall L. Silverstein | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I have chosen to discuss only the classical version of self psychology associated with Heinz Kohut. This version is both sufficiently encompassing and difficult to comprehend that a discussion of other outgrowths of self psychology (such as intersubjectivity) only diffuses my primary objective. Although I never knew or studied with Kohut, his views have substantially infused my own clinical practice and my thinking for more than 25 years.

In preparing this book, I have benefitted from the helpful comments of many colleagues, most of whom are at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis, Michael Reese Medical Center, and Long Island University. The preparation of this book was facilitated by a sabbatical leave from Long Island University and by a grant from the C. W. Post Research Committee of Long Island University. Irving Weiner, Susan Milmoe, Nadine Simms, and the production staff of Lawrence Erlbaum Associates provided steady guidance and clarity during the production stage. I am particularly grateful to Joanne Marengo, Michael Simon, and Marian Tolpin, for reading several drafts of the manuscript and for their enduring support of this effort.

I trust that my thinking about psychological testing will enrich the ongoing study of the psychology of the self, and I also believe that the contributions of self psychology will foster a deepening understanding of personality as revealed through psychodiagnostic testing.
