Psychoanalysts work with patients intensively (fifty-minutes a day, five days a week) and less intensively (fifty minutes a day, one, two, three, or four days a week). While most work in private practice, many psychoanalysts work in the National Health Service, holding distinguished positions in psychiatry, child psychotherapy, adult psychotherapy, psychology, social work, and family therapy. Reaching the Hard to Reach explores the role of psychoanalysis in the health service. --- from the publisher
