I still vividly remember my pleasure and excitement at coming across the first edition of this book by Andrew Lotterman back in 1996 (Lotterman, 1996). At that time I was becoming more convinced of the potential for individual psychoanalytic therapy for some of the people I came across in the British NHS who had had psychotic experiences and breakdowns, including those who received the diagnostic label of schizophrenia. I had found that many of the authors I had read offered interesting and convincing ways of understanding psychotic phenomena from a psychoanalytic perspective. The literature was, however, almost devoid of assistance with discussion of particular psychoanalytic techniques that might assist me when faced with certain of those phenomena. An additional problem was that some people with psychosis related to me in a way that I was unfamiliar with in my work with people with non-psychotic disorders, ways that I found most disconcerting, such as very concrete paranoia or fragmentation of thought processes. Very few, if any, of the colleagues I worked with had experience of psychoanalytic therapy with those with ongoing psychotic problems. Certainly, my usual psychoanalytic psychotherapy approaches, especially using understanding in the form of interpretation, were neither indicated nor effective for some patients, particularly at those times when words had lost their usual usage as shared symbols for verbal communication of experience. Hence the great importance to me of Andrew Lotterman’s earlier edition with its detailed discussion of real-life therapy situations with the kind of psychotic phenomena that I was encountering. The book was so rich and useful to others too that I quickly learned that this was not a book to lend out, as I had to reorder copies for myself. This second and greatly revised edition could not be published at a more opportune time. There is much greater concern now than for a long time about the limited effectiveness and acceptability of an approach to psychosis that has become far too exclusively biological and pharmacological in ideology and practice
