    Karnac Books 2010; US$ 25.95

    This book will stimulate readers to cross borders: between theory and practice, between research and everyday therapy, between out-patient and in-patient psychotherapy, between the view of ones own, the known and the culturally foreign. Yet it is only with an awareness of these borders, an acknowledgement and respect of them, that it will be possible... more...

  • The Analyzing Situationby Jean-Luc Donnet; Andrew Weller

    Karnac Books 2009; US$ 28.95

A modern conception of the analytic... more...
