Reviews and Endorsements

'This is the first in an interesting series of books which will explore the limits of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. It takes us vividly into important areas of contemporary discussion and work: the role of therapy compared to analysis and counselling; the place of once-a-week psychotherapy; work with puerperal mothers (and their babies); and support for ill trained health workers whose duties outrun their experience and learning. This book is varied, well-illustrated with cases and vignettes, rigorous in its use of psychoanalytic ideas in unusual settings, and it leaves us optimistic about the potential for fertilising society and mental health work with the ideas and practice from psychoanalytic psychotherapy. We must look forward to more books in this promising series.'
