Reviews

'Original and perceptive, the essays in this collection help to illuminate this difficult but fascinating area. The book opens a door on the normally sequestered world of perpetrator and therapist within secure institutions. It will assist all interested practitioners to improve their understanding of the formidable difficulties of therapeutic work in this challenging patient group.'- Dr David Reiss, Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist; Director of Forensic Psychiatry Education, West London Mental Health NHS Trust; Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer, Imperial College, London'This collection of valuable contributions from clinicians describes how psychodynamic theory and practice can lead to the deeper understanding of violence and offender behaviour, and in particular the act of murder, and the consequences of their behaviour. I am sure that professionals involved in this area of forensic psychiatry and psychotherapy will find it an extremely helpful guide and I would highly recommend it.'- Dr Gabriel Kirtchuk, Lead Clinician for the National Forensic Psychotherapy Training and Development Strategy Consultant Psychiatry in Psychotherapy; Member of the British Psychoanalytical Society; Honorary Clinical Lecturer, Imperial College, London
