Shrink Rap Radio #376 – A Psychodynamic Understanding of Personality Structure with Nancy McWilliams PhD

Nancy McWilliams PhD is a seminal figure in contemporary psychoanalytic circles. Two her books, Psychoanalytic Diagnosis, Second Edition: Understanding Personality Structure in the Clinical Process (1994; 2nd ed. 2011), and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy: A Practitioner’s Guide (2004) were used in the 2 1/2 year training I did in psychoanalytic psychotherapy (focused on Self Psychology and intersubjective theory). I regularly consult the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual (2006) when I want to better understand the etiology of specific behavioral adaptations. She is also author of Psychoanalytic Case Formulation (1999).

I was glad to stumble upon this podcast!
