Reviews and Endorsements

‘This is a remarkable work. Its clinical clarity will allow any therapist in contact with psychotic children to “recognise” himself or herself in the situations described and to understand the psychic processes involved, and it covers every aspect of the material setting. This is a fine and important book.’
- The International Journal of Psychoanalysis

‘This is a clinically rich book, especially moving in the intimate sense conveyed by prolonged, deep, shaping encounters. These papers bring considerable understanding to bear and at the same time communicate a sense of the full weight and shock of these often immensely difficult contacts.’
- Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

‘Each paper of this work is uniquely illuminating. The discussion of theory and the linking of developmental psychology and classical theory with stress on the importance of research is timely. Most of all, the clinical pictures are unforgettable.’
- The Journal of Child Psychotherapy
