This set of papers, from members of the British Association of Psychotherapists, demonstrates the vitality of the 'Kleinian tradition' in work with adult patients. It is a picture of work from outside the inner circle of Kleinians in London. And it thus indicates how the concepts have fared in their transport into everyday psychotherapy.
