Reviews and Endorsements

‘Edited by Eileen McGinley and Arturo Varchevker, Enduring Trauma Through the Life Cycle is a collection of fine clinical papers that follow a psychic theme and its vicissitudes through the life cycle. This volume offers to the clinician and also the interested layman many insights into the various ways in which traumatic experiences are lodged in the mind and then, as life goes on, become re-activated in subsequent events. This is an outstanding book.'
- Edna O’Shaughnessy, Distinguished Fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society

‘This important book is at the cutting edge of current psychoanalytic thinking about trauma and its effects on the mind. I found it moving to read. The humanity of the authors shines through, as does the sophistication of their thinking about this complex subject. Rich in clinical detail, the book illuminates differences in technique and theory in a very useful way.’
- Sally Weintrobe, Fellow of the Institute of Psychoanalysis in London
