The Science of The Art of Psychotherapy - By Martha Stark, M.D. (PDF)

The Science of The Art of Psychotherapy is a must-read for health professionals and interested lay persons alike because, although ostensibly about affect, attachment, the right brain, mutuality, and interactive regulation, it is ultimately a book about what it means to be human and how it is that we can be deeply and meaningfully connected to others.

One would be hard pressed to find another book so extensively filled with an up-to date and extensive review of contemporary studies on the affective and neuroscience literature related to psychotherapy and psychoanalysis as this. This work will likely be a major reference source for those interested in understanding the brain-mind body relationships, particularly in the two-person model, focused on the dissociative process, and the autonomic nervous system concomitants.

I would recommend The Science of the Art of Psychotherapy to child psychiatry/psychology fellows, psychoanalysts, family therapists, . . . neuroscience majors, psychology students at all levels of training, and any student of attachment therapy.

[S]chore's contribution continues to be invaluable. He voraciously digests the hard science on our behalf, and shows us over and over again that the evidence is there, and that this really matters.
