Reviews and Endorsements

This fascinating book reveals, in clear and in-depth form, the vicissitudes faced by therapists dealing with people in distressing social situations. It deals with prisoners, refugees, children with antisocial tendencies and other traumatised and highly vulnerable groups. The author shows us how she carefully develops therapeutic resources that can facilitate communication among people from diverse backgrounds, allowing them to feel themselves fully human and able to live in the societies that welcome them.

Leticia Castrechini-Franieck has written an important book based on her forensic and psychoanalytic training in which she communicates, critically, the necessity for an experiential approach to the understanding and treatment of marginalized, traumatized and highly vulnerable individuals. The timely subject of social and cultural ‘outsiders’ is front and center. Many clinicians today find that a developmental, ontological psychoanalytic perspective that emphasizes experience rather than the deployment of knowledge, yields valuable clinical results. Castrechini-Franieck achieves this in a difficult clinical context in ways that will reward the reader. I strongly recommend this book.
