Reviews and Endorsements

'In an era in which psychotherapy and psychoanalysis have become increasingly bureaucratised, and true innovation becomes increasingly rare, the late Charles Rycroft remains in our memories as a beacon of both inspiration and independence, unshackled by dogma and unimpressed by party politics. One of the very first psychoanalysts to write regularly for the general public, Rycroft helped convey psychological ideas to a wide audience, often risking the disapprobation of his more conservative colleagues in the process.

'Jenny Pearson has produced a beautiful festschrift, which celebrates the work of Dr. Rycroft, reminding us of the soul, the passion, and the intelligence of one of the outstanding figures in twentieth century British psychoanalysis. This poignant and readable portrait deserves a prominent position in the library of every mental health professional.'
- Brett Kahr, Senior Research Fellow in Psychotherapy and Mental Health, Centre for Child Mental Health, London, and Winnicott Clinic Senior Research Fellow in Psychotherapy
