Clinical Stories and Their Translations proposes and illustrates via numerous case examples, the utility of a psychology-informed ethnographic method of clinical thinking, teaching, supervision and practice. Patient care involves the constant interplay between stories - those of the clinician, the patient, the patient's family, the clincial institution and the wider culture. Stein and Apprey explore how the construction, interpretation, and translation of clinical stories inform all therapeutic work. Although placed solidly in the tradition of clinical hermeneutics, this study adds the curcial psycholdynamic dimension that aids understanding of both the practitioner's resistance and access to the stories of his or her patients and families and hence to the healing process itself.
