Summary"The field of psychotherapy with Holocaust survivors and their families is wide-ranging and varied with a number of emergent and competing paradigms. This book offers the mental health professional the opportunity to examine this diversity of viewpoints in the professional literature... [This anthology] includes essays from a broad range of theoretical and therapeutic perspectives. While presenting contributions that are classically psychoananalytic in orientation, we have also incorporated articles written from self-psychological, group, family, pastoral, empirical-research and eclectic viewpoints."
