"Dr.Evans' book not only humanizes Harry Stack Sullivan but with impressive clarity lays out his major theoretical and practical contributions. Readers from undergraduates to clinical and research professionals will benefit from this exposition of the founding concepts for modern interpersonal theory, research and psychotherapy.." -- Jerome L. Singer, Ph.D., Yale University"For those wanting to study Sullivan's work, start here." -- Jon Frederickson, MSW, Washington School of Psychiatry"This gem of a book restores to each of us who reads it a part of the history which Sullivan pioneered....I recommend this book to every serious student of modern psychotherapy." -- David E. Scharff M.D., Director, International Institute of Object Relations Therapy Harry Stack Sullivan (1892-1949) was the founder of the interpersonal theory of psychiatry, which focuses on interpersonal relationships and the effects of the individual's social and cultural environment on inner life, rather than on innate drives. It can be seen to complement the theories of object relations, self psychology, and psychosocial development. A complex and at times personally difficult man, Sullivan's very important contribution to psychoanalysis, psychology, and social science has not so far received the attention it deserves. In this comprehensive reassessment, F. Barton Evans explicates and critiques Sullivan's theory of personality development over the life cycle, his view of psychopathology, and his detailed exploration of the psychiatric interview as it relates to interpersonal psychotherapy. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
