Overview

A Question of Technique focuses on what actually happens in the therapy room and on the technical decisions and pressures that are faced daily.

Coming from the Independent tradition in British psychoanalysis, the contributors, a range of experienced practitioners and teachers, describe how their technique has quietly changed and developed over the years, and put this process in its theoretical context.

This book will appeal to child and adolescent psychotherapists, analysts and counsellors who wish to explore more Winnicottian approaches to therapeutic work.
