Reviews and Endorsements

‘Its editor cautions it is too soon to draw firm conclusions on the impact of the pandemic on the practice of therapy. Yet this collection of 15 essays … succeeds in its aim of providing some useful observations, ideas, and experiences.’
Duncan Barford, psychodynamic counsellor, SCAP no. 141 (Summer 2021)

‘it is in demonstrating the resilience of the analytic frame and the value of psychoanalytic tools in illuminating the structure of our most personal fears that this book proves its unique worth. […] A fascinating read.’
Jane Cooper, former senior counsellor at the University of Cambridge – Therapy Today Nov 2021

‘I think this book would be of interest to anyone working in the psychotherapeutic professions, who wishes to reflect on the multiple challenges of working and being over the past two years. It is a stimulating read for anyone who can resist the lure of amnesia now that the pandemic seems to be becoming endemic.’
Helen Lowe, registered member of BACP, ‘Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy’ Vol 22 No 22 April 2022

‘I was immediately taken with the title of this book and impressed that Howard Levine and Ana de Staal had been able, so quickly, to bring together papers by a range of psychoanalytic practitioners from many different countries. [… It] sets down some very important challenges for us as individuals and as a profession, with opportunities and responsibilities that go beyond the clinic and the office. I will be mulling over them for some time, as I think you will too.’
Lord John Alderdice, Harris Manchester College, Oxford, ‘Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy’, 2022
