About the Author:

Following his medical training at the time of the anti-psychiatry movement, Bob Hinshelwood started working as a psychiatrist in London in 1966. He worked in the NHS for 30 years, as well as having a part-time practice as a psychoanalyst since 1975, when he qualified with the British Psychoanalytical Society. He has contributed to the therapeutic community movement, including taking the role of Director of the Cassel Hospital. And was from 1997, Professor at the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex, until 2015. From 1989, thanks to Free Association Books and Bob Young he began an academic interest in psychoanalysis. This led to the publication of the well-known Dictionary of Kleinian Thought. This interest has led him to write on many clinical and academic topics, including research on psychiatric and psychoanalytic ethics, on the contributions of psychoanalysis to political thinking, and he has maintained a continuous interest in the application of psychoanalytic ideas to social science. He has also published papers on the history of psychoanalysis, and was jointly responsible with Andrea Sabbadini in stating the Journal Psychoanalysis and History. Despite now being retired from the public service, he is in demand as a speaker and supervisor and travels widely giving talks and workshops, as well as supervising clinicians by skype from his home in Norfolk.
