Contributors offer more specific critiques of each of the major psychodynamic theories—Freudian drive theory, ego psychology, Kohutian self psychology, object relations, and intersubjective approaches—with respect to their usefulness in working with African-American women. These authors seem to concur that contemporary self psychology, object relations, and intersubjective approaches, perhaps better than drive theory, provide room in which the complexities of the individual psychologies of women of color can unfold. The authors also illustrate the complementary usefulness of feminist approaches. Case examples enrich many of the chapters. Beverly Greene specifically addresses the psychodynamic treatment of black lesbians.
