Abstract/Book Review

This paper explores some aspects of the impact of the economic, social and political context on the experience of infant observers and seminar teachers. The paper suggests that these factors cannot be ignored but argues that in the face of high anxiety and social upheaval, the value of trainings in psychoanalytic observational skills is in no way diminished but has a potentially important role in promoting hope and hopefulness.
