Review

The Art of Holding in Therapy invites aspiring and seasoned perinatal psychotherapists alike to pull up a chair, settle in, and experience Karen Kleiman's wit, unflinching honesty, and endless wisdom as she teaches the reader both the ‘why’ and the ‘how-to’ of this essential cornerstone of psychotherapeutic treatment. This is guaranteed to be a book you'll take off your shelf again and again.”―Margaret Howard, PhD, professor of psychiatry and human behavior (clinical) and medicine (clinical),Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University; division director, Women's Behavioral Health, Women & Infants Hospital

“Karen Kleiman has done it again! She has written another great book to help clinicians use the technique of holding in a therapeutic relationship with postpartum women. Her previous books―Therapy and the Postpartum Woman: Notes on Healing Postpartum Depression and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Perinatal Distress―are extremely relevant and helpful to a therapist working with pregnant and postpartum women. Her new book, The Art of Holding in Therapy: An Essential Intervention for Postpartum Depression and Anxiety, is another great addition to your library and learning.”―Birdie Gunyon Meyer, MA, RN, past president, certification director, postpartum support international coordinator, Perinatal Mood Disorders Program, Indiana University Health
