Abstract/Book Review

This chapter describes the referral of a 14-year-old boy, the responses engendered by it, and expands on the transference and countertransference phenomena arising from a presentation of violence and a history of cumulative trauma. The referrer, a consultant forensic child and adolescent psychiatrist, requested an assessment that would provide 'a psychodynamic formulation which we can use to help our continuing efforts to understand Martin and manage his case'. Subsequent consultation for the team was also required.
