Object Relations Couples Therapy

Author(s): David E. Scharff and Jill Savege Scharff

Couple & Family Therapy | Psychotherapy

In this landmark book, David Scharff and Jill Savege Scharff, both psychoanalysts, develop a way of thinking about and working with the couple as a small group of two, held together as a tightly knit system by a commitment that is powerfully reinforced by the bond of mutual sexual pleasure.

This text uses object relations theory for the dynamic therapy of marital conflict and sexual problems. The psychological mechanisms of transference, countertransference and projective identification are used in understanding, digesting, responding and conceptualising the whole experience in verbal form. The authors deal with the full complexity of the couple experience.
