Psychoanalytic psychotherapists and psychoanalysts inevitably find themselves doing assessment in their work, both in private practice and in a clinical setting such as the NHS. The authors felt a need for a book that covers this vital aspect of their work, which would be of benefit both to students in training and to practitioners. Amongst subjects covered are the nature of assessments, the setting, consultation, contraindications, and clinical examples. This title contains the distilled wisdom of over twenty years experience in the field.

This book advances a new understanding of producing change in psychotherapy. It proposes the concept of interaction structure, repeated mutually influencing interactions between therapist and patient that are a fundamental aspect of therapeutic action. Interaction structures allow consideration of both the intrapsychic and the interpersonal by recognizing the intrapsychic as an important basis for what occurs in clinical interaction. This book clarifies the process of therapy, and is a guide to the practice of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Using transcripts of clinical sessions, Dr. Enrico E. Jones offers an unusual window on the interactive structures that actually occur between patient and therapist and identifies specific interventions that successfully promote change.

This is a book that grew out of the many practical "how-to" questions that the author's psychotherapy students have asked him over the years. It is neither an evidence-based compendium nor an attempt to summarize general practice or the viewpoints of others, but rather a handbook of practical answers to many of the questions that may puzzle students of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. Some of the short chapters include:How to choose a personal psychoanalystHow to do an initial interviewHow to listen to a patientHow to recognize and understand self-states, multiple identities, true and false selves, etc.How to tell what the transference isHow to deal with the sadomasochistic transferenceHow to understand the need for recognitionHow to think about analytic processHow to practice holistic healingHow to refer a patient for medicationHow to get paid for your workHow to manage vacations, weekends, illnesses, no-shows and other disturbances of continuityWhile trying to give simple answers to sometimes very difficult questions, it is written at a level of sophistication that may make it of interest even to experienced practitioners.

In this book, Peter Blake articulates his clinical practice of child and adolescent psychotherapy. A clear conceptual framework and historical context is provided for the work. The book is then structured to follow the therapeutic process, from assessment (referral and initial interview, individual assessment, developmental considerations, assessment for therapy, working with parents) to therapy (physical and mental settings, interpretation, the role and challenges of play, transference and countertransference, termination). Drawing on the Winnicottian tradition, in which fun and humour have a place in child and adolescent work, Blake demonstrates how a therapist can be playful and less directly interpretative. How psychodynamic thinking can be applied in an effective yet time-limited manner is also demonstrated. The text is enlivened by many case studies and clinical anecdotes.For therapists who are new to child and adolescent psychotherapy, and who wish to take a psychodynamic approach, the book will provide a valuable introduction. For professionals who refer to or work with child and adolescent therapists, the book will provide insight into the field, dissipating much of the mystique and misunderstanding that surrounds this work. Experienced child and adolescent therapists will find of interest how Blake integrates a Kleinian, Object-Relations approach with more Interpersonal (now, Relational) thinking.
