Dr Malan's iconic book is firmly established as a classic psychotherapy textbook and it remains extremely popular. The second edition of this highly individual and fascinating text brings theory and practice up to date, while keeping the essential character of the book unchanged. The book offers an invaluable description of dynamic psychotherapy and the theory on which it is based. Through the use of numerous case studies and clinical stories, the book begins by illustrating everyday mental mechanisms, moving on to a discussion of some of the most profound problems experienced by human beings. Practical applications of theory through different techniques are described, from the straightforward to the handling of some of the most complex and dangerous situations likely to be encountered in psychotherapy. Part of the book's unique value is derived from the way in which it distils from psychoanalytic theory the core of scientific truth. Covers the principles of dynamic psychotherapy from the most elementary to some of the most profound Always illustrates these with true case studies told as they happened Gives full interpretations and analysis Beautifully written and highly accessible for anyone with a deep interest in people. New material for the second edition includes: the relation with the mother in the male Oedipus complex, disturbances in the relation with siblings, masochism, and the 'compulsion to repeat'. This is an important resource for all psychotherapists of any degree of experience, psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors, primary care physicians, mental health nurses and anyone with an interest in the human mind. For psychotherapists in training it remains an outstanding textbook.

Malcolm Pines and Lise Rafaelsen The Seventh International Congress of Group Psychotherapy organized in Copenhagen by the International Association of Group Psychotherapy was one of the largest and most representative congresses on this subject that has yet been held. Probably for the first time we achieved the declared aim of the International Association: that of bringing together representatives of the different approaches to group psychotherapy in the same forum to allow for communication, exchange, and development of our relation ships. Previous congresses have been less representative and it seems to augur well for the future of the Association and of it's congresses that there was this strong force and wish for unification and for exchange within the field of group psychotherapy. The Congress theme, "The Individual and the Group: Boundaries and Interrelations in Theory and Practice" was chosen because it gave an opportunity once again to examine the very basis for group psycho therapy as theory and as practice. The basic theme, stated in the opening papers by Professor Marie Jahoda and Professor James Anthony, was replayed daily with new developments and variations according to the theoretical position of each subsequent speaker.

Well established, highly regarded text for undergraduates and a popular resource for junior doctors *Stimulating approach to a complex speciality *Excellent glossary *Case vignettes enhance clinical application of knowledge *Based on ICD-10 *Now includes eg: Clinical audit and psychiatric emergencies This second edition of Student Psychiatry Today adheres to the basic concepts of the original textbook. The authors unravel the complexities of psychiatry to present it in a clear, stimulating and balanced fashion. Information is comprehensive but is concisely set out. It is readable, maintaining a minimal degree of jargon and employing the liberal use of clinical case vignettes, table and diagrams. The extensive glossary is retained. Many new developments have taken place in psychiatric practice over the past few years, and this is reflected in the text changes. Several chapters have been extensively revised and updated to encompass modern approaches to diagnosis, brought about by the ICD-10 classification system. Recent developments in genetic research, brain imaging techniques and drug treatments are all included. The chapters dealing with community and liaison psychiatry have been considerably expanded and new sections are devoted to important topical issues, such as clinical audit and psychiatric emergencies. The thorough revision ensures that the book will continue to be of outstanding value to undergraduates, during both their clinical attachments and eventual preparation for the final medical examinations, as well as to those doctors beginning a new career in psychiatry or general practice.
