This book is the distillation of many years of rich experience of psychotherapy with traumatized children. The author has reflected sensitively and constructively on her own and her patients' experiences. This [book] goes beyond the experiences and training of the therapist and involves the 'essence' of the therapist, something that cannot be left outside the consulting room. It is under constant observation by the patient, especially in the close face-to-face work with children and adolescents where the therapist inevitably must sometimes be active. The author illustrates her theme very vividly in her well-chosen case histories. I find the thesis of this book very cogent. It helped me clarify in retrospect some of my own clinical experience. It adds another dimension to thinking about tranference and counter-transference. I think the book merits serious consideration and am happy to recommend it to therapists of adults as well as children. |o Isabel Menzies Lyth, Child and Adult Psychoanalyst.
The Presence of the Therapist uses clinical studies based on the author's publications over the past 18 years to illustrate work with severely deprived and disturbed children. The intricacies of the 'present' relationship and the impact of the therapist's personality on the therapeutic encounter is explored as a strand of the total therapeutic relationship, alongside the transference relationship, and the wise work with the network of adults, which together bring about the transition and change in the patient.
