"This is a rich and thought-provoking collection from twenty-seven main contributors. It is as relevant to social workers who work with children as to specifically psychoanalytic psychotherapists... every section of this second edition can be read with interest and fascination by anyone working with children. Its relevance extends far beyond the psychotherapists in training for whom I am sure it will be a valued Handbook." - John Sudbery, British Journal of Social Work, Vol. 40, No. 2, March 2010
"This revised edition is a thoroughly impressive and impressively thorough achievement. The writing, the level of specialism and expertise evidenced, and the rich variety of clinical and research illustrations make it also a great read." - Anne Alvarez, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist
"The second edition is engaging and insightful... This is a resource which can be used by various professionals who work with children not only psychotherapists...especially useful to professionals working with clients in a residential setting by its investigation of group dynamics, professional and client interplay and how these can be managed to understand client pathology...a vital read for all who work directly or indirectly with children." - Martin Smith, Addiction Today
