Elaborating at the subject matter of a multiply constituted, "distributed" self, Pizer offers a version for the tolerance of paradox as a developmental fulfillment on the topic of ways that caretakers functionality as "transitional mirrors." He then explores the impression of trauma and dissociation at the kid's skill to barter paradox and clarifies how negotiation of paradox differs from negotiation of conflict. Pizer additionally broadens the scope of his research by way of turning to negotiation idea and practices within the disciplines of legislation, international relations, and dispute resolution.
Enlivened through various scientific vignettes and a richly unique chronicle of an analytic case from its earliest negotiations to termination, Building Bridges provides an important measurement to theoretical figuring out and scientific perform. it's altogether a psychoanalytic paintings of our time.
