Reviews and Endorsements

This is a great book and an enjoyable read which I would recommend for all educational psychologists ... chapters discuss a wide range of practical applications of psychoanalytic theory; with individual children and young people as well as considering school leaders, groups of school staff and work which has its focus upon whole organisations and their structures. There is much to be learnt, or reminded of, from reading this book.
Dr Cate Mullen, West Sussex Educational Psychology Service

This volume [carries] a central message that should be of value to educational psychologists of every stripe. The authors endorse using 'emotion as evidence'-one's own, and that of other(s) - which, when combined with objective data, can lead to a better appreciation of the 'total situation' in consultations, classrooms, and other groups. I recommend this volume, a potent humanist collection, to all interested professionals and students.
Linda A.W. Brakel, M.D., is a faculty member in Psychiatry and Philosophy at the University of Michigan and the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute

The contributions in this volume impressively demonstrate that psychoanalytic concepts are very well suited to understanding the particular problems of children, their families, professionals and institutions in the field of education ... a great asset for all those who are looking for a compass for orientation in the world of education.
Prof. Dr. Christoph Steinebach is President of the European Federation of Psychological Associations and faculty member at the School for Applied Psychology, ZHAW, Switzerland

A comprehensive introduction, explanation and exploration of psychodynamic thinking as related to the practical daily work of educational psychologists … I enjoyed reading this …a valuable text book.
