Reviews

The Tavistock and Portman Clinics are amongst the world's best-known psychoanalytic institutions. This volume is a tribute to the resilience and adaptability that has enabled them to survive in a culture of cost-cutting and managerialism. The 'Tavi', readers will find, perhaps to their surprise, is: integrative (developing a dialogue between systemic and psychoanalytic viewpoints), scientifically minded (pioneering brief evidence-based treatments), inclusive (tackling hard to reach client groups), un-hidebound (prepared to question professional and psychoanalytic hegemonies) - yet holding proudly to its core values of open dialogue, authentic authority, and the unceasing effort to articulate the deepest layers of meaning and desire. --Jeremy Holmes, MD, Professor of Psychological Therapies This challenging and ambitious book captures the variety and richness of contemporary clinical developments in the Tavistock and Portman Clinics in relation to work with adults and young adults. It sets these developments in the context of the collective psychoanalytic and systemic principles that are the central underpinning of the Clinics' work, built up over their long and distinguished history. The book sets the scene for the challenges that face the Clinics from the evidence-based practice approach and from competition for resources with forms of practice that are validated by this approach. The book outlines the adaptive and innovative ways in which the Clinics have responded to this competitive situation, for example by the development of an internet-based service for young adults, the application of mentalisation-based therapy for antisocial patients, and the use of dynamic interpersonal therapy as a brief therapy. This book will be an inspiring guide and rallying call for practitioners in the mental health field, who face the same inexorable competition for resources in providing therapy in the NHS and public services. --Nick Temple, President Elect, British Psychoanalytic Society (BPAS); Former Chief Executive, Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust; Training Analyst
