Laing in London

Show Summary Details


"Chapter 11 looks at Laing’s move to London and the patients he saw at the Tavistock. We witness him conducting individual and group psychoanalysis, as well as interviewing families in the clinic and at home. We see Laing adopting orthodox analytic techniques and then adapting them as he becomes more experienced in psychotherapy."
