Review by:
Gertrud Mander

The bibliography of the impressive book, Therapeutic Care for Refugees, No Place like Home, lists a page and a half of publications by the editor, Renos Papadopoulos, on the subject of refugees over 15 years which is evidence of the length and the depth of his involvement in this client population. This time he has assembled a group of distinguished researchers, clinicians and academics connected, as he himself is, with the Tavistock Clinic, who work with refugees either in the country of resettlement or in the territory of origin and are tackling different aspects of this new therapeutic specialism which has come to the fore in the profession since the war in the Balkans. There have, of course, been refugees since time immemorial, who had to leave their homes and resettle in strange countries to start new lives. These days refugees have become a big subject in the media and in the politics of this country and no-one can remain unaware of their presence. That they are also beginning to feature in the training of therapists and counsellors is largely due to Renos Papadopoulos, who is a refugee himself from Cyprus, and has drawn attention over the years by his prolific writing to the plight and the needs of his fellow-sufferers; in particular, but not exclusively, to their therapeutic needs which are central to this book.
