In this article, environmental modification within the psychosocial tradition of clinical social work is reexamined. Selected constructs from Heinz Kohut's self psychology, in particular his ideas regarding the significance of "self-selfobject" experiences for development and functioning, are set forth and applied to person-environment transactions. Implications are discussed for clinical social work with preadolescent and adolescent children and their families, couples, and chronically disabled unattached adults.
