The New Independents is a book that shows how contemporary independent psychoanalysts think and work. There are three themes to the book: independent thinking including the theory of technique; exploration of clinical concepts and demonstrations of ways of working by some of the most prominent independent clinicians practicing today; finally, the evolution and enduring impact of independent ideas and the influence of past independents on present ways of working.
