"It is clear, easy to read and grasp, it conveys the key complex ideas in a readily accessible form and will offer encouragement to those who read it. As the author states, "rumours that long-term treatment is dead have been greatly exaggerated." This book will certainly inspire those interested to develop their therapeutic skills." - Judith Trowell, Tavistock Clinic, London, UK
"This is a highly readable book concerning all introductory aspects of psychodynamic psychotherapy. The inclusive, but highly personal, tone leads the reader to rethink many of the issues other texts take for granted. This is a must- read for all psychotherapists and a welcome addition for any psychotherapy programme’s suggested reading list." - Douglas H. Frayn, Clarke Institute, Canada.
