This second edition brings important areas of theory and practice up to date, but the inimitable character of the original book is retained. The book offers an invaluable description of the technique of dynamic psychotherapy and the theory on which it is based. Starting from theories of everyday mental mechanisms the text leads on to discussion of some of the most profound problems suffered by human beings. Practical applications of theory through different techniques are described, from straightforward situations to the handling of some of the most difficult and dangerous types of patient likely to be encountered in out-patient psychotherapy. Part of the books unique personality is derived from the way in which it attempts to distil from psychoanalytic theory the core of scientific truth. Dr Malan supports his argument throughout the book with clear undeniable clinical evidence. Consisting largely of clinical stories on which the discussion of theory and technique is based, this is a book that will continue to appeal to anyone with a deep interest in people. It is an excellent companion and resource for psychotherapists of all degrees of experience, psychiatrists, social workers and general practitioners. For psychotherapists in training it remains an outstanding textbook.
