"This volume is as much discovery as rediscovery. Pierre Janet’s true impact is timeless. Why? Because his enduring relational sensibility is in his prescience. The full power of his ‘here-and-nowness’ can best be appreciated by those who are able to recognize how much they need him. In this magnificent volume, both scholarly and personal, Janet’s contribution and the man himself are embodied and come alive in every chapter. It is a book for us, and a ‘must-read’." Philip M. Bromberg, author, Standing in the Spaces: Clinical Process, Trauma, and Dissociation and others
"Pierre Janet’s work, predating Freud’s, was the starting place for the effective treatment of serious mental distress. But Janet’s concepts are not always easy to understand for English-speaking readers or for readers who have not previously been exposed to his work. This volume of collected articles by international experts, edited by Giuseppe Craparo, Francesca Ortu, and Onno van der Hart, rediscovers and elucidates Janet’s concepts, linking them with object relations theory, attachment theory, Ferenczi’s work, Jungian theory, and many other current psychotherapies. Together these articles explain the depth and breadth of Janet’s concepts. Rediscovering Pierre Janet: Trauma, Dissociation, and a New Context for Psychoanalysis is a must read for all interested in psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, relational, and trauma/dissociation-informed psychotherapies." Elizabeth Howell, PhD, author, The Dissociative Mind and Understanding and Treating Dissociative Identity Disorder: A Relational Approach
"Based on Pierre Janet’s unsurpassed pioneering studies, the editors and authors have realized an excellent book, intended for clinicians and researchers, focusing on the complex links between trauma and dissociation. This beautiful integration of Janet’s work and current understanding is bound to open up new directions in theory and clinical practice. We should be grateful to Giuseppe Craparo, Francesca Ortu, and Onno van der Hart, for this most inspiring work, destined to become a classic of international psychology." Françoise Pasqualin, President of the Association Française Pierre Janet (AFPJ); and Bernard Mayer, co-founder of the AFPJ
