The turn from a drive based theory of relations with Objects to an evolving Interpersonal/Relational based theory
Greenberg, J. and Mitchell, S. (1983). Object Relations in Psychoanalytic Theory, Harvard University Press, Introduction and Chapters 1 & 2, pp1-49.
Jay Greenberg and Stephen Mitchell have written a scholarly review of Object Relations Theory. They begin by defining Freud’s use of the term Object and how the Object is built into the drive from the outset. From there the authors introduce two models of object relations theory: The drive-structure, and, later in the book, the structure-relation model.
