Promotional Information

An essential tool for counsellors and psychotherapists working with the experiences of persecution, violence and exile

About the Author

Dick Blackwell is a psychotherapist and organisational consultant, group analyst and family therapist. He has more than 16 years' experience as a psychotherapist and supervisor at the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture, and has written numerous articles on working with refugees and on the political and social contexts of psychotherapy.


Counselling and Psychotherapy with Refugees is clear, well-conceived, and does not overwhelm therapists trying to find their way in this complex field. Dick Blackwell, a psycho-dynamic psychoterapist and supervisor, has a wealth of experience gained through working with the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture and Organised Violence. His book provides therapists across modalities with an accessible framework as it concisely raises issues for us to reflect on while adapting our own way of working with such clients. -- Transactional Analysis Journal
