This is the first of the Journal of Lacanian Studies (JLS) Ex-Tensions series of short books that aim to address "extant tensions" affecting the broad field of Lacanian psychoanalysis.

On Wednesday 8 October 2003, the French National Assembly passed a bill intended to regulate, for the first time, the practice of psychotherapy in France. Moved by Bernard Accoyer, the purpose of the legislation was to restrict the practice of psychotherapy to psychiatrists and clinical psychologists; it would effectively no longer be legal for any other practitioners, including psychoanalysts, to practice in the sphere of mental health. This volume contains Jacques-Alain Miller’s letter to Bernard Accoyer, opposing the bill. Contributions from Bernard Burgoyne and Russell Grigg are also included, examining the implications of such a bill for France and for elsewhere.

Since it was founded in 1920, the Tavistock Clinic has developed a wide range of psychotherapeutic approaches to community mental-health which have always been strongly influenced by psychoanalysis. In the last thirty years it has also developed systemic family therapy as a new theoretical model and clinical approach to family problems. The Clinic has become the largest training institution in Britain for work of this kind, providing post-graduate and qualifying courses in social work, psychology, psychiatry, child, adolescent and adult psychotherapy and, latterly, in nursing. It trains about 1200 student each year in over 45 courses.
