This book will stimulate readers to cross borders: between theory and practice, between research and everyday therapy, between out-patient and in-patient psychotherapy, between the view of ones own, the known and the culturally foreign. Yet it is only with an awareness of these borders, an acknowledgement and respect of them, that it will be possible to proceed towards integrating differences, where this makes sense and appears necessary.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Crossing borders and integrating differences is an essentially psychoanalytic task like few others. This book allows the reader to take an adventurous trip at many levels, all true at the same time: from the migrants as people who were born elsewhere to the migrants understood as aspects of ourselves yet undiscovered and difficult to come in contact with. I strongly recommend this outstanding collection of articles to all therapists ready to migrate now and then towards new borders of psychoanalysis.'
- Roberto Basile, Analyst of the Italian Psychoanalytical Association and co-author of The Analytic Field: A Clinical Concept
