The Austro-American psychoanalyst Heinz Kohut was one of the foremost leaders in his field and developed the school of self-psychology, which sets aside the Freudian explanations for behavior and looks instead at self/object relationships and empathy in order to shed light on human behavior. In How Does Analysis Cure? Kohut presents the theoretical framework for self-psychology, and carefully lays out how the self develops over the course of time. Kohut also specifically defines healthy and unhealthy cases of Oedipal complexes and narcissism, while investigating the nature of analysis itself as treatment for pathologies. This in-depth examination of “the talking cure” explores the lesser studied phenomena of psychoanalysis, including when it is beneficial for analyses to be left unfinished, and the changing definition of “normal.”An important work for working psychoanalysts, this book is important not only for psychologists, but also for anyone interested in the complex inner workings of the human psyche.

A person has to be very knowledgeable of traditional psychoanalysis concepts to really benefit from it. It is a slow read and I am still working on understand it using references from other sources

I really like this guy. Makes it crystal clear and understandable why this stuff works. Cutting edge analysis of mental conditions.

This is one of the most difficult of Kohut's books, published posthumously with the assistance of one of the most talented analysts of this period: Arnold Golberg.

The book is a compendium of Kohut's theories and techniques as well as a defense of the innovations he introduced when he wrote "The Analysis" (of the self) and "The Restoration" (of the self, of course).

For anyone who deals with the narcissism of borderline patients, as-if personalities and eating and its disorders I can not think of a better source of enlightment and wisdom than reading: The Analysis, The Restoration, How does (it) cure? and finally, Heinz Kohut: The Making of a Psychoanalyst.

As a lay person you should feel gratified. As a therapist, you should feel reward it.

It is a reference for the analyst and the clients . The curing is what provoked the curiosity of both analyst and the clients. This a resources we should all examine and share.

Strengths: The short answer to the question is "empathy." The longer answer is "transmuting internalization," a clumsy phrase necessitated by James Strachey (Freud's translator) using variations of "transformation" and "internalization" in his own essay of the therapeutic effect of psychoanalysis. From a psychoanalytic perspective, Dr. Kohut put empathy on the map. This particular work was assembled by Arnold Goldberg, M.D. and Paul Stephansky (editors), working from an advanced draft by Dr. Kohut, after the latter's untimely death in 1981. The work establishes the connection between phase-appropriate failures of empathy in the analyst and the establishment of psychic structure of the self that enables the person to transform his anxieties, etc. Empathy becomes a tool for the reestablishment of emotional equilibrium on an occurrent as well as dispositional basis. On my reading, it is the non-traumatic breakdown's in empathy and their interpretation and working through that become the basis for structural change (and expansion and "improvement") in the self. Kohut's work in The Restoration of the Self puts empathy at the center of self psychology and includes the claim (only partially justified) that data gathered empathically through vicarious introspection provide a scientific (or at least rigorous) basis for psychoanalysis as a verifiable intellectual discipline.
Weaknesses: Not really a weakness but ... The work is most accessible to those familiar with the self psychology, which itself is accessible as a conversation and (partial) disagreement with Freud. If you are turned off by the amount of sexual dynamics of to be found in Freud's drive theory [a statement that makes almost no sense in our hyper-sexual times], then you will likely find Self Psychology a welcoming option. For Freud (and his colleague Ernest Jones) sex was always the signified, never the signifier. Now sex is just another symbol - when the patient acts out sexually, he is attempting to regain his emotional equilibrium in the face of narcissistic injuries or set backs in the course of life. It is an oversimplification, but a useful one to say: Bad behavior becomes a method - admittedly mal-adapative - of regaining emotional composure when it has been lost for whatever reason. Of course, sex is also just sex in the classic Freudian way too. It is not really fair to either Kohut or Rogers to say the following, but for purposes of an Amazon-reader review, Kohut is Carl Rogers on steroids plus you are allowed to talk about dreams, the past, and even the future! This complex thicket of concepts around empathy, self-object, and narcissism, provides a challenge from the perspective of motivating Kohut's contribution to empathy (which is substantial). Not an easy read, given that Kohut knew he was dying and was unapologetic in expressing his complex thoughts in a complex syntax that borders on "run on" such as this sentence, but a worthwhile one. You get the idea. Newton is supposed to have said, If I have seen further than others, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants who came before me. Never was that truer than in the case of the relationship between Freud and Kohut.
kohut takes the self object theory one further and reinterprets from this lens such great iconographs as the oedipal complex.

compelling read, with a bit of denseness

good for twisting through the labyrinths of the human mind..
