Freud and grief psychology Freud (Hedtke & Winslade, 2008)

In 1986 Karl Tomm begins to discuss his move away from the Milan Teams ideas (he had previously introduced the Milan Team into North America) and introduces the work of a new and talented therapist he has discovered to North America – Michael White. Karl has to be admired for his ongoing willingness to explore and expand upon new therapeutic ideas. Part of his legacy is that he always had a good nose for great therapists!
