The aim of this book is to provide illustrations of ways in which psychoanalytic ideas can be adapted and used in a wide variety of community settings - including social services, schools and hospitals - to help children and families who are emotionally disturbed or who have been physically or sexually abused. It is a book for professionals who are interested in using psychoanalytic ideas in their own work settings, and assumes no previous knowledge of these ideas on the part of the reader. It provides basic principles, many practical examples, further reading, and information about where to get support and consultation.


`This volume, rich with some eminently realisable projects, has its own dynamic compelling the reader to experience constant shifts of emotion, to know the world of the young child, to listen, to think and to do something.' - Journal of Social Work Practice

`This book makes an important contribution in bringing the emotional needs of young children to the foreground, and in highlighting the demands that receptivity to their feelings place on the professionals working with disturbed children.' - British Journal of Psychotherapy

'This ambitious and timely book…deserves a wide readership amongst those who work with children.' - Health and Social Care in the Community

'A useful reference volume for those looking for an introduction to psychodynamic understanding in their work with children and young people. It should appeal to a multidisciplinary readership and will, I hope, be read particularly by health visitors and field and residential workers. It is especially relevant at a time when the implementation of the Children Act emphasizes the responsibilities of all agencies involved in the health and welfare of children to work co-operatively together, an exercise in which a greater understanding of group dynamics will be essential.' - Journal of Child Psychotherapy
