What is unusual about this book is that Casement shares his heart and soul
about the inner world of this fascinating and complicated profession. He
shows how he grew through social work and probation to become a warm and
caring psychoanalyst. Starting with an early problematic childhood he shows
us how we can learn and grow from his experiences and help us in our
professional life.

We are challenged these days by attachment theory to understand the devastating effects of severance to our attachments.In this powerful new book, Patrick Casement details his journey from the fractures of his own infancy and childhood to a detached boarding school boy.he looks back at his adolescent self in ambivalent need of certainty and on through the pain of heartbreak and breakdown. Eventually,through a rigorous analysis,he was able to recover, discover, his many-times-abandoned-self. His originality is to have drawn, with unusual candour, which may shock some,on such painful experiences and to risk sharing them with us.They have enabled him to work with the extraordinary sensitivity and compassion which are the hallmarks of his work.
