This collection of written pieces plots the work of an NHS psychiatrist, turning the science of psychiatry into human encounters. Jonathan Pedder could recast the ordinary everyday problems of the public service into an elegantly refined discourse on the Shakespeare, interveaving the psychoanalytic unconscious with the aesthetically creative. He had a career teaching and inspiring colleagues and students with psychoanalytic ways of thinking, encouraging and supporting them in the everyday chores, and challenges of contemporary psychiatry.
Notes about the author(s):
Jonathan Pedder was one of the founders of the Association of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (APP), set up originally in 1981, initially to cement psychoanalytic psychotherapy into the training of psychiatrists, and then later the establishment of psychoanalytic psychotherapy more generally in the National Health Service.
