Primary care and psychotherapy are in some ways worlds apart. Yet both deal with the same human fundamentals: birth, death, hope and disappointment, identity, and uncertainty. This innovative book looks at how psychotherapists can make use of their skills in primary care. It examines how therapists, family physicians, and other primary care professionals can all learn from each other through clinical collaboration. Each chapter describes a different practical approach to joint working in a range of primary care settings, across the life cycle. Specific topics include services for children and adolescents, working with immigrants, and live supervision. All the authors are connected with the prestigious Tavistock Clinic, and are psychotherapists or family physicians. The book challenges psychotherapists and those who work in primary care to develop closer working relationships, so that they can deliver more effective and more equitable services.

The Contributors: Jenny Altschuler, Sara Barratt, Sue Blake, Dilys Daws, Nasima Hussain, John Launer, Robert Mayer, Jo O'Reilly, Rob Senior, Ann Simpson, Patrick Tiernan, Beverley Tydeman, and Cathy Urwin

'The book reflects a distinctiveness and also an immense diversity of attitude and approach arising out of the thinking and experience gathered in each department of the Clinic over the years. The respective authors each psychotherapeutically trained and each engaged, in different ways, with primary care, focus on a range of community settings in which the complex needs of patients and practitioners challenge known or standardised ways of going about things.'- Margot Waddell, from the Preface
