The Self of the Field and the Work of Donnel Stern.
Degree: Psy. D., Antioch Seattle: Clinical Psychology, 2014, Antioch University
No study has taken an updated and comprehensive review
of Donnel Stern’s writings. An investigation of his philosophical
assumptions, locating Stern’s work socioculturally and
historically, along with an elucidation of Stern’s background in
traditional psychoanalytic literature and clinical practice, brings
out the meanings and enigmas present in his theories of
dissociation, enactment, unformulated experience, multiple
self-states, and reflection. Stern has offered one of the
best-integrated theoretical models in relational psychoanalytic
theory. An examination of his theories within the theoretical
traditions to which he makes claim (psychoanalytic, interpersonal,
hermeneutic, postmodern, and democratic) helps elucidate the
challenge posed by relational psychoanalysis to the Cartesian split
and scientism in psychological study and praxis, while also
attending to important clinical implications of Stern’s model. The
