Book launches

All our work is that it is grounded in clinical practice. Our clinician trainers and researchers work in a variety of settings in health, education and social services, and many of the staff here at the Tavistock and Portman are actively publishing across a wide variety of media and platforms. We invite you to join us at the launches of their new work.
