Extract: “Prins’s article (2010) exemplifies how a systems psychodynamic orientation can contribute to our understanding of those interorganizational phenomena known as multi-agency collaborations.

Her findings highlight key points of difficulty in an initial year of a cross-boundary project. It is precisely the apparent quality of the research and consultancy that makes this case study useful for purposes of heuristic and academic discussion.”
