Reviews and Endorsements

'Making Spaces is a marvellous book, extending the reach of psychoanalytic thought and practice in many original and surprising ways, while reaffirming the liveliness of a distinctively Scottish tradition of psychoanalytic work. Alongside papers of great clinical and observational sensitivity and depth are chapters that search out new and unfamiliar inter-disciplinary territories. Insightful, engaged, and rich with the wisdom of clinical and social experience, this book should be read by everyone wanting to develop meaningful forms of psychoanalytic practice for the twenty-first century.'
- Andrew Cooper, Professor of Social Work, The Tavistock Centre and the University of East London

'The expert contributors to Making Spaces have provided a highly valuable, thought-provoking, and interdisciplinary exploration of the human relations perspective in psychodynamic theory and practice. This historically informed and culturally sensitive volume opens up new spaces for thinking from a psychodynamic relational perspective, whether about practice inside the clinic or the wider world of organisational and community life. As well as appealing to academics and students, this book will be of great interest to mental health professionals, particularly counsellors and psychotherapists, and to others involved in the caring professions, such as clergy and social workers.'
- Dr Gavin Miller, Medical Humanities Research Centre, University of Glasgow
