Resource Description

This was an invited response to a case presentation by Maggie Turp, a psychodynamic therapist who has initiated a consideration of the body and of the importance of wellbeing in psychoanalytic circles.

In the process of critiquing Turp's paper, I spell out some criteria and ingredients of what we might mean by 'working with the body'.
