With case examples and step-by-step frameworks for intervention, the authors illustrate the challenges and solutions in establishing an effective ward-based psychotherapy service for renal dialysis and transplant patients. They describe clinical patterns of presentation and how psychotherapeutic intervention was refined over time in a clinically meaningful and evidence-based manner. Each chapter is focused on specific emotional disorders among renal patients. The authors introduce the concept of loss of an imagined past' (aspirations and ambitions) never realized, or compromised, as a result of renal disease and as a major cause of post-transplant depression. Emotional issues which have received little prior attention in the literature-including substance abuse, eating disorders, gender disorders and emotional body image-are addressed in depth. Practical advise, including that against referencing the transplanted organ as a gift, is offered.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[T]he book begins with useful background material, including an outline of psychotherapeutic theory as it relates to chronic illness, and a short section on psychoanalysis I was impressed by the skill involved in trying to relign patients' expectations of their postmorbid lives, or in helping them to come to terms with their limitations, or in helping to ease their feelongs of isolation. my enjoyment of much of the book Reading of the transcripts of the psychotherapist's art will be rewarded by a rare insight into the emotional world of transplant or dalysis patients. in thaat respect, the authors may prompt others to explore how such a service might be provided in their own practice, and this can only be a good thing for the present and future patients."-American Journal of Kidney Diseases
