Every therapist is faced with dilemmas in the consulting room. While psychoanalysis has concentrated on the issues of theory and technique, there has not been much material available on the actual clinical exchanges in the consulting room. The papers in this volume deal with practical matters within the consultation room, as well as emotional responses; reflections on the therapeutic relationship; and issues such as violence and suicide. This volume acts as a guide which can help therapists overcome certain problems and develop their own 'clinical style within a holding framework.'

Reviews and Endorsements

'This is an excellent and enlightened book, simple and yet complex. The editors have wisely chosen papers which address basic concerns about what happens when working with patients in the consulting room. The ways these basic concerns are taken up are clearly described, with plenty of examples, and are always dealt with great thoughtfulness. This book is a must for all therapists, psychologists and people from allied professions who work with patients in the consulting room.'
- Anne-Marie Sandler, Former President of the British Psychoanalytical Society
