Comprising the second volume in the series The Practice of Psychotherapy, this volume brings together six contributors, all members of the London Centre for Psychotherapy, presenting psychoanalytic ideas lucidly illustrated by clinical observatioins taken from the consulting room. Focusing upon such issues as sibling attachment and the impact of maternal absence, this collection of essays offers uniquely personal insights and new idrom psychotherapeutic encounters.'We believe that in each of these papers there is the spark of an original idea...grounded indeed in psychoanalytic theory, but influenced by individual experience and observation in the consulting room.'- From the Introduction
