Reviews and Endorsements

'This thoughtful book reminded me how difficult it can be to listen fairly and objectively to our colleagues' clinical material, particularly so when it concerns a first interview. [...] I congratulate the editors of this book for offering us a thoughtful, searching and important publication.'
- Anne-Marie Sandler, from the Foreword.
