Individual patients at Gartnavel

Show Summary Details


"Chapter 9 depicts Laing’s work with individual patients at Gartnavel. It includes a consideration of the patient who would become ‘Julie’ in The Divided Self and the young mother described in ‘The coldness of death’ chapter of The Self and Others. There are also clinical notes on many other patients who were not subsequently discussed in his published books. These illustrate how Laing tried to apply psychoanalytic techniques to the treatment of people with psychotic illnesses."
