Introduction by Kate White (Acting Editor)
It was decided to ask three people to review this extremely important book for the journal. They each come with distinctive perspectives. The first review is by psychotherapist, Jungian analyst, and psychiatrist Jean Knox. She has written and taught extensively on the relevance of attachment theory and developmental neuroscience to psychotherapy theory and practice. Simon Partridge's review follows, bringing his personal story as an ex-analysand and writer to help us think about the book from the client's perspective. Finally, Adrian Salter concludes with a review from his medical background as a former General Practitioner, his work in palliative care, and experience as a senior manager in public health and community, preventative medicine.
We hope that together these reviews will create a debate among all of us about how to take the stark findings of this book into our work and, most importantly, into the wider world so as to promote the profound social changes that are demanded by its findings.
To quote Jean Knox (2012) from her review:
There is an urgent imperative for all societies to face the real public health crisis of the emotional, relational, psychological, and physical havoc caused by early life trauma.
Review one by Jean Knox, Psychiatrist, Psychotherapist, and Jungian Analyst
This remarkable book is of enormous importance to all psychotherapists.
