An introductory text suitable for a wide range of courses, this lively, widely referenced account presents the core features of contemporary psychoanalytic theory and practice in an easily assimilated, but thought-provoking manner. Illustrated throughout with clinical examples, it provides an up-to-date source of reference for a wider range of mental health professionals as well as those training in psychoanalysis, psychotherapy or counselling.

Throughout they give a measured, critical appraisal of psychoanalytic thought and practice; both its strengths and weaknesses ... I found it an extremely helpful exposition of what analysts now think, why they think it, and what they now do as a result. - British Association of Counselling Practice
This extensively researched and usefully referenced book deserves the place it aspires to as an introductory text. - International Journal of Psycho-analysis
