This is the third volume in the highly successful monograph series produced by the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Health Services (EFPP). It deals with psychotherapeutic life and work at the interface between psychoanalytic theory and institutional reality. Contributions are provided by writers from across Europe, whose differing perspectives lead to a fascinating cross-fertilization of ideas. Inevitably, a particular theme is the set of constraints and pressures which arise as a result of working in institution, and how to deal with them.
