Psychodynamic Practice with Vulnerable and Oppressed Populations

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Psychodynamic theory and practice are often misunderstood as appropriate only for the worried well or those whose problems are minimal or routine. Nothing could be further from the truth. This book shows how psychodynamically informed, clinically based social care is essential to working with those whose problems are both psychological and social.
