Hampstead psychotherapist’s new book on family therapy
A Tavistock Clinic psychotherapist has launched a new book tackling previously overlooked topics in family therapy.
Jenny Altschuler has published Counselling and Psychotherapy for Families in Times of Illness and Death, which updates a book she published 15 year ago called Working With Chronic Illness: a Family Approach.
She said: “I wrote the new edition because I became increasingly aware there are areas of counselling which are not receiving enough attention.
“Most of all I hope that it will be useful to doctors across many different areas of practice and healthcare.”
Mrs Altschuler is an independent psychotherapist who spent a total of 15 years working in Hampstead at the Tavistock Clinic and before that at the Royal Free Hospital.
