(from the publisher)
"Photography is a medium that has historical roots in psychiatry. It is an art form that shares some concepts with psychodynamic psychotherapy and can also provide psychotherapeutic value. In addition, it can provide a means of stress reduction for the burned-out clinician. Photographs can also be utilised for educational activities to stimulate reflection and discussion."
