This book is about children in State care and its title - Waiting to be Found - is derived from an observation about such children by the child psychotherapist Hamish Canham. In one of his early papers Canham wrote that children's homes often reminded him of "station waiting rooms with children waiting to move on to their next placement and staff waiting for the next shift, or working as a residential social worker in order to get experience before moving on to do something else or further training." This book takes his comment about waiting rooms as its starting point, with each contributor building upon its central implications. The contributors to this book each explore the importance of relationship; whether between child and care system, child and clinician or other practitioner, practitioners with practitioners, or individuals with the organisation in which they work.

The book provides an up-to-date account of research on the developmental, familial and social context of child anxiety, along with nine vibrant and detailed case studies illustrating the ways in which young people can be helped to deal with serious and complex anxiety problems. In order to begin to understand complex anxiety within children’s life circumstances Part One of the book provides the reader with a developmental framework for thinking about children’s anxiety.

Part Three acts as a summary of the key points emerging from the clinical case studies. This book will be essential reading for those working and training in the specialist field of child mental health, as well as community and hospital professionals working with children and young people, including teachers, doctors, social workers and nurses.

Based on the wealth of experience gathered in the forty years of the life of the Adolescent Department at the Clinic, this covers a full range of clinical work with some of the most difficult areas of adolescence, but it also gives a conceptual framework of normal adolescence and traces the difficulties that arise when this goes wrong. Facing It Out presents new work which has not previously been fully described. The book will be vital reading for clinicians whose work includes work with adolescents. The Adolescent Department of the Tavistock Clinic in its long history has been engaging with young people and their families when the strains prove too great. In this book, staff of the Adolescent Dept examine in accessible language different clinical aspects of adolescent disturbance, exploring in particular the impact on the family. The chapters look at a range of severity of disturbance from adjustment crises to anorexia nervosa and psychosis as well as aspects of adolescent development in small families and in the formation of a sense of identity. With the exception of infancy, adolescence is the most radical of all developmental periods. In the few years between puberty and adulthood, one's sense of oneself must adapt to physical changes of size, shape, strength, and to full sexual and reproductive capacity. Socially there is the need to develop the capacity for intimate relationships and to survive the initiation into the workplace via the demanding examinations: all this in a complex and dangerous world.

This book includes contributions from a wide range of interested observers and practitioners in the field of children in care and adoption, focusing on a core aspect of their emotional well-being and mental health. It focuses in particular on psychoanalytic, systemic and attachment theory approaches to the question of 'belonging': can these children allow themselves to belong to their new families, and also can these new families allow themselves to belong to these children? Highly innovative clinical work with these children in various settings is discussed alongside chapters that provide thought-provoking commentaries from practitioners surveying the often extremely disturbing societal and systemic landscape for the emotional lives of these children.The book is written to be accessible to clinicians, practitioners, researchers, policy advisors and students of all disciplines who have an interest in or brief to work with fostered and adopted children. It is hoped that the book will be used for teaching purposes on courses qualifying professionals across the child development, mental health and social care spectrum.

What makes the mind develop? What helps children grow up? When can we think of ourselves as adults? Why do we fall in love? Why do our feelings sometimes 'get in the way'? How do families affect us? What is mental illness and what is normal? These are just some of the questions discussed in this new reissue of the classic Talking Cure: Mind and Method of the Tavistock Clinic.It has long been known that having someone listening carefully to what we say can help us make sense of life and cope better with its difficulties. In a unique synthesis of modern human relations, psychology, and science, experienced psychotherapists from the renowned Tavistock Clinic explore the power of the mind and the importance of therapy.Talking Cure shows how the mind operates through all stages of life. Drawing on Tavistock Clinic research and case studies, it demonstrates just how much "the heart has its reasons the reason knows not of". Providing insights into many areas of contemporary life and into the challenges of the future, this book provides a valuable insight into one of Britain's foremost psychotherapeutical traditions.Contributors from the Tavistock Clinic include Robin Anderson, Jenny Altschuler, Caroline Garland and Margaret Rustin, who also contributed to the accompanying six-part BBC series on the Tavistock Clinic.
