Comprising the second volume in the series The Practice of Psychotherapy, this volume brings together six contributors, all members of the London Centre for Psychotherapy, presenting psychoanalytic ideas lucidly illustrated by clinical observatioins taken from the consulting room. Focusing upon such issues as sibling attachment and the impact of maternal absence, this collection of essays offers uniquely personal insights and new idrom psychotherapeutic encounters.

'We believe that in each of these papers there is the spark of an original idea…grounded indeed in psychoanalytic theory, but influenced by individual experience and observation in the consulting room.'
- From the Introduction

Reviews and Endorsements

'Ideas in Practice shows in several vivid cases how psychoanalytic theory is applied to clinical work in innovative ways. The value of this is greatly enhanced by the authors' willingness to share with the reader the process of their thinking, in their struggle to understand their patients better, while they gradually find their way beyond the maps provided by their training and reading. The book also gives stimulating examples of analytic understanding as it in turn arises out of clinical practice. This is a book to enjoy and to recommend to others.'
- Patrick Casement.

About the Editor(s)

Bernardine Bishop, the great-granddaughter of the poet Alice Meynell, was one of the witnesses from the Lady Chatterley trial in 1960. After writing two early novels, she taught in a London comprehensive school for ten years and then went on to have a distinguished career as a psychotherapist, during which time she was a member of the London Centre for Psychotherapy and of the Lincoln Centre for Psychotherapy. Cancer forced her retirement in 2010 and thereafter she returned to her first love, fiction.
