'The Alchemy of Wolves and Sheep provides breakthrough persepctives to allow previously unknown points of access to better understand and treat some of the most intractable conditions of the human spirit...If clinicians are able to comprehend and work with the populations that are mentioned throughout this book, then working with other types of traumatized individuals should be a piece of cake. For this reason alone The Alchemy of Wolves and Sheep is worth its weight in gold.' - Robert Grant, The Therapist, November 2014
'This outstanding scholarly work explores aspects of humanity which are often deemed unthinkable. It gives new meaning to `holding the space' for healing in profoundly difficult contexts and speaks of transformation. It will resonate with anyone who is concerned about atrocities against children, especially clinicians who work with child and adult survivors of complex trauma and mind control.' - Sue Richardson, UKCP registered Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist
"Embracing this realistically hopeful connection throughout, The Alchemy of Wolves and Sheep is a tender, painful, and essential book to be taken into the heart by psychoanalytic therapists ofevery persuasion."
