Reviews and Endorsements

'Having read it twice now, I am struck by the richness and extent of your clinical vignettes and theoretical references. The book is obviously the product of much reading, much experience, and much thoughtfulness. Congratulations for writing it.'
- Stanley Ruszczynski, Consultant Adult Psychotherapist and Director of the Portman Clinic (Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, London)

'This short book provides a treasure trove of clinical vignettes and conceptual ideas, from a variety of theoretical frameworks and writers, which aims to inform and assist the assessor in the hugely important task of making a judgement about the nature of patient's distress and the suitability of psychoanalytic treatment.'
- From the Foreword by Stanley Ruszczynski

'This book will help readers to think more carefully about the importance and complexities of this aspect of our work. It will be of considerable use to the training process and to those in practice in whatever setting.'
- From the Preface by Julian Lousada, psychoanalyst with the BPA, former Clinical Director of the Adult Department of the Tavistock Centre, and current Chair of the BPC
