This book is one of the core texts for the introduction to Psychoanalysis module of my Post Graduate Diploma course. I am glad I bought it in order to read the other chapters around the required ones. The author uses a single question raised by a client and describes how each therapeutic format would deal with it. She manages to impart an experiential understanding of what each approach to helping a person would imply. A course colleague and I, both of us from outside the English culture, agreed that the book was very accessible in language and content. We are glad to have bought the book and I feel that I will refer to it throughout my studies.
