Industry Reviews

'This coherent and compelling book enriches the developing field of forensic psychotherapy, and illustrates how Winnicott's thinking continues to inform psychoanalytical work with deprived, delinquent, and forensic patients. Brett Kahr has done a superlative job in bringing together the work of eminent clinicians who have combined a wide range of thought-provoking clinical material with careful theoretical discussion. This is a highly recommended text for those who have an interest in the early antecedents of delinquency, and in the psychotherapeutic treatment of children, adolescents, and adults with severe psychopathology.'- Dr Gill McGauley, Consultant Forensic Psychotherapist, Broadmoor Hospital, and St. George's Hospital Medical School, University of London'The contributions in this book constitute a major attempt to synthesize and extend Winnicott's insights into both his theoretical foundations and therapeutic techniques. Interdisciplinary collaboration between legal professionals and psychotherapists will be crucial to the "preventative medicine" practiced by those who treat children and youths liable to develop violent, antisocial or criminal behavior. This book is a solid stepping-stone in the process of establishing the parameters and potentials of this new field.'- Vamik Volkan, Professor of Psychiatry, University of Virginia, from his Foreword
