I am the co-editor, along with David Garfield, M.D., of this volume, published Fall, 2008 by Routledge in the United Kingdom.  I also have a chapter in the book: “Doing the Impossible Work in Impossible Places.”  The book is oriented primarily, though not solely, for therapists and other clinicians who wish to work psychodynamically, and without medication, with people labeled with psychosis.

”This superbly executed work is as courageous as it is timely. At last psychoanalytically informed psychotherapy is being recommended and justified for the treatment of psychotic patients – over and above – and often instead of – psychopharmacology! This work is recommended for all mental health workers but particularly for psychiatric residents and psychologists in training.”
